It’s our favorite time of the year to be an ECCC member…the annual bus trip! This year’s trip will be on Wednesday, October 22 to see Amazing Grace at the Bank of America Theatre, Chicago.
Registration is $95 and includes an orchestra section ticket, transportation, food, and beverages on the bus. Checks can be made payable to ECCC and mailed to ECCC P.O. Box 61, Champaign, IL 61824.
With music and lyrics by Christopher Smith and a book by Smith and Arthur Giron, Amazing Grace tells the story of John Newton, the former slave trader who, following his conversion to Christianity, became an abolitionist, Anglican cleric, and hymn writer. He'll be played in this new musical by Tony nominee Josh Young, known for his roles in the touring productions of Evita and Jesus Christ, Superstar. The musical focuses on Newton's conversion and subsequent dedication to ending slavery and features a large, ethnically diverse cast. Josh Young will be joined on stage by Tony nominee Tom Hewitt and Tony winner Chuck Cooper.
