2014 NYC Theatre Tour

Backstage on Broadway
ESU Theatre - May 20-25, 2014

Emporia State University Theatre announces its New York Theatre Tour.   Running from Tuesday, May 20 until Sunday May 25, 2014. The tour will be led by Jim and Lindy Bartruff.  It provides an opportunity for theatergoers of all ages to enjoy live, professional theatre in New York City. The tour originates in Emporia, KS.  But, through arrangements with your travel professional departures from other cities can be arranged. We'll provide information about ground transfers between the airport and the hotel when you join the tour.

The cost of the ground portion of the tour will be $1400 per person for quad rooms and $1800 per person in twin rooms. Accommodations in triples will be $1550 per person and singles at $2605. This package price is very competetive. The average rate for a NYC hotel room is almost $300 a night according the USA Today. But, by purchasing as a group, we are able to save money on the cost of our accommodations, theatre tickets, gratuities, tour providers and other events.
