American Ballet Theatre Dress Rehearsal

More than a dozen FBWE Villagers had the pleasure of watching a dress rehearsal of the American Ballet Theatre in the Kennedy Center, Opera House on April 15.  The featured work was Frederick Ashton’s “The Dream” based on Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream.”  Every aspect was magical –the set, the costumes, the music, and of course, the dancers, especially Puck, who was lighter than air.  The audio commentary enhanced the experience. It was a tutu wonderful afternoon.

Villagers gather for Spares and Strikes

bowlingOn Saturday, April 12th, more than 25 FBWEV members and guests gathered at Pinstripes in Georgetown to relive their teen and college days by participating in an evening of bowling with style.

Members showed off their skill, not greatly diminished by aging, by bowling several games and competing with one another. The competition was enhanced by Pinstripes upscale atmosphere , gourmet pizza, and the inclusion of members new to the Village experience.

Check out our events calendar and plan to participate in future programs.
