June Theatre Event in NYC


The Red Hat Mamas did BROADWAY! We traveled to NYC on Wednesday June 11, 2008 via AMTRAK. When we disembarked the train we gathered maps, flyers and miscelleaneous brochures on the sights that NYC had to offer. Our morning started out with a stroll up to 42nd Street where we visited Madame Toussad's wax museum. We spent a couple of hours there taking pictures with our favorite famous and infamous legends. The museum is amazing and if you get a chance it's worth the visit. We then strolled over to 44th Street where we picked up our tickets for "CAT on A HOT TIN ROOF". Since we had time we decided to grab a quick bite at a local restaraunt, and then hurried back to the theatre where we were ushered in and to our seats, and BOY what great seats they were; Orchestra 7th row. We felt like we were a part of the action as we sat riveted to our seats throughout each act. The play was awesome, Anika Noni Rose (Maggie),Terrance Howard (Brick), James Earl Jones (Big Daddy), Felicia Rashad (Big Mama), Lisa Arindall Anderson(Mae), Giancarlo Esposito (Gooper), Lou Myers (Rev Tooker) and Count Stovall (Dr. Baugh)gave powerful perfomances. After the play we were able to take photos and get autographs from some of the cast memebers. Our evening drew to a close as we had cocktails and appetizers at Houlihans and boarded the train for the ride back to Boston. It was a wonderful experience and hopefully you'll be able to join us on our next Theatre excursion.

July Chapter Gatherings


July 2010 Chapter Gathering

Red Hat Mamas Red Hot visited the SoWa Sunday Open Market and had lunch at the Rdd Fez. The Shopping was great as we each found something of interest bead and fiber, fresh produce, vintage clothing and accessories, and hand crafted artisan jewelry. July 2009 - The Red Hat Mamas boarded the Greylines Tour bus and went on a scenic tour of the Newport Mansions. We visited the Vanderbilt Mansions (The Breaker and the Marble House. We went into town and visited the many quaint shop in the sleepy seaport town of Newport. It was a great day and we are looking forward to going there again.

July 2008 - The Chapter gathering was held Sunday July 27, 2008 2:30-4:30pm. at the Bayside Executive Conference Center.

We had a Mystery Tea Party. and solved the mystery: Who Killed The Roving Romeo of the Red Feather Ladies.

The Prime Plume (President) of the Red Feather Investment Club has called a special meeting and revealed that 8 members have all been dating and planning to marry the same man! He was a swindler that planned on feathering his nest with Red Feather Investments. Now he has been found dead, shot in the heart. In his hand, he clutched a red feather. Which member of the Red Feather Investment Club double crossed the double crosser before the double crosser crossed her? Was it Betty, the prime plume? She is a retired attorney, suspicious of everyone. Was it Louise - fun loving, adventurous former cheer-leader, who waves her pom-poms (or boa) at every chance. Perhaps Charlene crossed the double crosser- don't let this shy, studious book-worm fool you. Maybe Jane - self-centered, wealthy society snob, or even Rose Ann -a naive Southern Bell could be suspect. Then there is Agnes- a controlling, strong willed spinster. Even Helen- a clumsy klutz, always dropping things and prone to accidents or Barbara-a pill popping hypochondriac could be the one.

Tea, Pastries, Tea Sandwiches and cookies were served, and we had loads of laughs.


Congratulations to our Mystery Tea Super Sleuths Ladies Sharon and Juliette for correctly determining the guilty party.

Id like to give a special thank you to Ladies Jocelyn, Tanya, Stephanie, Saundra, Kathleen, Dee, Andrea, and Empress Dolores for their excellent character portrayals.
