- See the Christmas Tree or ice skate at Rockefeller Center.
- Attend the Rockette’s Christmas Spectacular Show or a Broadway show.
- Look at the store windows that are decorated for Christmas.
- Sightsee – Lots of options including a city bus tour that takes you the top sites.
- Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.
Participation is limited to the first 50 people to complete and return the Registration and Liability Waiver forms along with the full payment. We can only accept payments made by cash or check for the trip. In the event the trip is cancelled all payments will be returned.
NYC Spring Spectacular Bus Is Full – Deposit Being Accepted For A Second Bus
Our original plan was to take one bus to NYC for the Spring Spectacular show at Radio City Music Hall. Since we filled the bus so quickly and have quite a few people on the waiting list, we are going to attempt to get a second bus. As with the first bus the cost is $145 per person and includes chartered roundtrip bus transportation and a ticket to the show. We will be leaving at approximately 6AM from the studio parking lot and returning around midnight. If you are on the waiting list or would like to be, please complete the registration form and return it to the front desk with the full payment (check only) no later than received by March 17th at 9pm. Keep in mind that friends who are not part of the Spotlight Family are welcome to go on the trip. In the event that there are not enough participants for the second bus we will refund your full payment.

We will be leaving at approximately 6AM from the studio parking lot and returning around midnight. We can accommodate up to 50 people on the trip.

Rockettes Show Cancelled – Trip to NYC Still On
The Rockettes show was cancelled until 2015, which is very disappointing. Our plan is to run the bus if we can get enough participants. Many of those who were going to see the Rockettes have decided to go anyway and plan to get tickets for a different show or sightsee. Anyone is welcome to come with and the cost is $75 per person. Full refunds ($120) will be given to those who choose not to go to NYC and partial refunds ($45) will be given to those who do go.
