    “Hilarious! Nonstop pandemonium.” 
    – Entertainment Weekly 

    “A gut-busting hit!” 
    – Ben Brantley, The New York Times

    What would happen if Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python had an illegitimate Broadway baby? You'd get The Play That Goes Wrong, Broadway and London's award-winning smash comedy! Called a gut-busting hit (The New York Times) and the funniest play Broadway has ever seen (HuffPost), this classic murder mystery is chock-full of mishaps and madcap mania delivering a riotous explosion of comedy (Daily Beast). Welcome to opening night of The Murder at Haversham Manor, where things are quickly going from bad to utterly disastrous. With an unconscious leading lady, a corpse that can't play dead, and actors who trip over everything (including their lines), it's tons of fun for all ages (HuffPost) and comic gold! (Variety)—sure to bring down the house!

    Matthew Bourne transforms the classic fairy tale into a wartime romance with a twist of Hollywood glamour. A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the Blitz.

    Following the dazzling smash hit The Red Shoes in 2017, New Adventures returns to the Ahmanson with one of their most beloved dance theatre productions, Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella. Performed to Prokofiev’s magnificent score, this new production comes alive with heart-stopping choreography, vivid theatrical storytelling, and sumptuous award-winning scenic and costume designs that will transport audiences to the heart of war-torn London for a timeless story of the power of love.

    “A valentine to the power of love.”
    – Los Angeles Times

    Rose Bowl Hall of Fame Induction Luncheon and Ceremony

    The Rose Bowl Hall of Fame was established in 1989 to honor members of the Rose Bowl Game family who have contributed to the history and excitement of the Rose Bowl Game and those who embody the best of the passion, strength, tradition, and honor associated with The Granddaddy of Them All®. What was once only a dream of 1982 Tournament of Roses President Harold E. Coombes has become an annual tradition with over 100 inductees.

    Those eligible for induction include players, coaches, school administrators, athletic directors, conference officials and others who have made special contributions to the Rose Bowl Game. Inductees are selected by a committee made up of representatives from the Tournament of Roses, media professionals, and leaders in college football.

    Once selected, inductees are celebrated at a ceremony where they receive the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame trophy and blazer. In addition, inductees are memorialized on a permanent plaque with their names and year of induction at The Court of Champions at the Rose Bowl Stadium.

    This year’s class includes Illinois graduate and Chicago Bears founder George Halas, former Arizona State and NFL offensive lineman Randall McDaniel, former Stanford head coach Pop Warner and former Texas and NFL quarterback Vince Young.

    $40 - Reserved Seating with Plated Lunch 

    The Induction Ceremony also includes a "meet and greet opportunity" for all guests.

    Reserve your place today!

    If you do purchase tickets, please let Jim know so that he can make arrangements for club members to sit together.
