Alberta Bair Theater Trips for 2016-2017

We are excited to announce this year’s upcoming Alberta Bair Theater tours. These exceptional events are offered through the Central Montana Education Center and have proven to be great entertainment options for our community. Reserve your spot today for any of the shows by calling us at 535-9022.

I just want to take a moment to give those of you who have yet to attend one of these tours a quick rundown. We begin the trip by meeting at the Fergus High School parking lot where participants will board a large Fergus High School cruiser bus. The tour departs from the school and travels directly to Billings; restrooms are available on the bus. In Billings participants are taken to a nice restaurant for dinner, which is not included in the trip price. After dinner, the bus will deliver the group to the theater, arriving in plenty of time for you to comfortably find your main floor seats. Following the show you board the bus that takes you directly back to the Fergus High School. These shows are a great way to spend an enjoyable evening with a group of friends or are perfect for the individual who loves a great theater experience. For specific questions regarding a particular show please don’t hesitate to give us a call at the Central Montana Education Center at 535-9022.
