Jeanne Robertson – Newport News, VA
Saturday – January 27

jeanne-1Come join us for a hilarious evening of comedy with Jeanne Robertson at the Ferguson Center for the Performing Arts in Newport News.  Jeanne is a professional speaker who specializes in hilarious humor based on her own life experiences. Other speakers might be as witty as Jeanne. Some might even be as tall. (Barefooted with her hair “mashed” down, she’s 6’2″ in her size 11B stocking feet.) But nowhere will you find a speaker so adept at turning personal experiences into funny material that does more than elicit laughter. This Miss Congeniality winner in the Miss America Pageant, “Yearrrrrrrrrrrs ago,” quoting Jeanne, uses her down-home Southern drawl to leave her audiences laughing.   So beat those winter blues and join SignaTours for a guaranteed laugh-filled evening!  Enjoy great orchestra seats! A pork and chicken BBQ dinner is included at Smoke’s – a local favorite in Newport News.

Highland Maple Festival – Monterey, VA
Saturday – March 17

maple-picTake a step back in time when you visit Highland County . . . “Virginia’s Sweet Spot.” Travel the mountain byways to Monterey, Virginia, home to the annual Highland Maple Festival. This annual event, held since 1958, draws visitors to the unspoiled, rural region of Virginia to celebrate the “opening” of the trees and to observe the process of maple syrup making. Designated a “Local Legacy” by the Library of Congress in 1999, the tasty Highland tradition is sure to be the sweetest of festivals!  We’ve included lunch in Monterey, free time to visit all the art and crafts on Main Street, as well as time at the local high school for more arts and crafts and clogging entertainment. Visit the Old Country Store in McDowell, to learn about the modern technology used to tap the trees and last but not least, visit the Virginia Trout Company to see where they are raising thousands of trout (We’ll have an extra cooler on hand for those that want to bring some home!)

Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all. A delicious plated lunch is served prior to the matinee.
