Porgy and Bess
Des Moines Civic Center
Thursday, April 3, 2014
Tickets Only $61.00
Transportation will be provided at an additional cost.
As beautiful and balmy as a summer day in the South, Porgy and Bess is a lush new musical theater staging of the Gershwin opera. The show has been adapted to include more dialogue and big dance numbers with a shorter running time. It still features the classic tunes "Summertime," "I Got Plenty of Nothing" and "It Ain't Necessarily So". It also includes beautifully sung performances by four-time Tony winner Audra McDonald and Norm Lewis in the title roles and David Alan Grier as the troublemaking gambler, Sporting Life.
Set in the 1930s in an African-American Charleston neighborhood known as Catfish Row, Porgy and Bess centers on the tragic love story of the crippled beggar Porgy and beautiful Bess, who longs to turn away from her former life as a prostitute and cocaine addict. After a murder, Bess' abusive partner, Crown flees, leaving her at the mercy of a disapproving community and tempted by the seductive drug dealer Sporting Life. Bess strikes up an unlikely relationship with Porgy and gradually finds acceptance on Catfish Row—until a hurricane and the return of Crown changes everyone's lives forever.

Downton Abbey
"Masterpiece Theatre brought thousands of viewers to Iowa Public Television through the success of Downton Abbey that literally took everyone by surprise. The series has become a phenomenon with appreciative viewers from all around the world. Downton Abbey follows the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who work for them, whose lives were changed forever during the First World War. The show is riveting and exciting at every turn. Throngs of devoted viewers are heading to England to get a glimpse of some of the castles, villages and settings used in the filming of this drama, and we will be doing the same, with a unique twist!

The HARDIN COUNTY SAVINGS BANK LiNK Club has a wonderful opportunity to offer our members a very special experience. We will be taking you to London in the spring of 2015 for a delightful trip into the English Countryside. You will enjoy much of the luring charm of the Cotswolds with Oxford University and so much more. We will spend time in the Oxfordshire village of Bampton, the real world location of the fictional village of Downton. Many of the outdoor scenes that were used in the filming of the series were shot right here. You will quickly spot areas such as St. Mary's Church and the library, which serves as the entrance to the cottage hospital. The episodes of the series will come to life in an amazing way as you stroll the cobblestone streets of what seems to be a bygone era.

But, modern day Royalty holds great fascination as well. On our tour we will take the opportunity to visit the largest occupied castle in the world, and step inside Queen Elizabeth’s favorite retreat at the opulent Windsor Castle. You will see how the Royals live today amidst the magnificent galleries of the great masters and the multitudes of priceless treasures. A walk through the gardens here will be a photographers delight.

We will spend our last two days in London enjoying many of the highlights of this world class city on a private city tour. This a perfect adventure for a fan of Downton Abbey or anyone who wants to experience England in the spring.

Get your name on the waiting list for this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Availability will be limited.
