Cancelled: Alumni outing to Paramount Theatre’s Wizard of Oz
This event has been cancelled. Look for another opportunity for a Redbird night at the Paramount in the near future.
It’s time to follow the yellow brick road with fellow Redbirds as we partake in fun and song (while saving money too). Join the Chicago Suburban Alumni Network this holiday season at the Paramount Theatre for a performance of The Wizard of Oz. Along with the show, guests will enjoy a pre-show party complete with food, fun, Redbird giveaways, and special appearance by Paramount Theatre Vice President Jim Jarvis ’84.
Written by L. Frank Baum, follow the adventure of Dorthy Gale, a girl from Kansas with big dreams, as she is whisked away to the wonderful world of Oz, where she meets some interesting characters. Guests will get to see alum Gene Wegandt ’74 shine as the Wizard on stage and be dazzled by alum Teresa Ham’s, M.F.A. ’06 costumes for the show. The network has obtained a small number of group tickets so don’t miss out!
