“Are we there yet?” 

Laugh your way through the classic family road trip!

Remember those family vacations you tried to forget?  Don’s memories of family road trips come to life as he travels cross-country to scatter his father’s ashes.  Packed with rollicking good humor, this celebration of family reminds us that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination.
Enjoyable for ages 10 and up.

Associate Artistic Director Karen Lund directs Ryan Childers, Jenny Cross, Robert Gallaher, Helen Harvester, Ian Lindsay, and Kim Morris
