Fort for a Day:  The Fireside Theatre (A CHRISTMAS STORY The Musical) and Jones Dairy Farm (Jones Market) 

Join us for a day in Fort Atkinson!  Start with a stop at Jones Market at Jones Dairy Farm.  Take some time to sample their famous meats; have an Ancora coffee, tea, Door County Cherry juice, or a Sprecher soda; and shop the market.  All purchases will be kept cold, if needed, in their coolers until the group is returning home.   

Off to shopping, lunch (tomato bisque soup, fresh baked breads, “Beef and Bird” beef short rib dressed with red wine demi-glaze and chicken cordon blue, scalloped potatoes, spaghetti squash with tomato concasse, gingerbread frozen custard pie, and coffee/tea/milk), and the show at The Fireside.  The show this year is A CHRISTMAS STORY The Musical.  Ralphie only wants an official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle.  This is the hilarious account of Ralphie’s desperate quest to ensure that this most perfect of gifts ends up under his tree this Christmas.  It is based on the classic 1983 movie that has become a holiday tradition that millions wait for every year.  Featuring a funny and heartfelt score by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul who wrote the music for the hit movie LA LA LAND, the hit Broadway show DEAR EVEN HANSEN, the new hit movie THE GREATTEST SHOWMAN, A CHRISTMAS STORY The Musical captures holiday wonder with such deliciously wicked wit that it is sure to delight children and grown-ups alike! 


Feel free to bring a cooler to keep any Jones Dairy Farm or Fireside purchases cold on the way back to Fond du Lac, Oshkosh, or Menasha.  There will be plenty of storage under the bus.
