Alumni outing to Elf: The Musical
The best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loud for all to hear. The Chicago Suburban Alumni Network is ready for alumni, family, and friends to do just that together on December 3 at Elf: The Musical at the Paramount Theatre. Along with the show, guests will enjoy a pre-show party with the opportunity to meet special Redbirds guests such as Paramount Theatre Vice President Jim Jarvis ’84, Scene Designer Jeff Kmiec ’09, Costumer Designer Teresa Ham, M.F.A. ’06, and Assistant Costume Designer Christine Leinicke ’08.
Based on the hilarious 2003 Will Ferrell movie, Elf is one of those rare holiday shows that will have both kids and adults lighting up with laughter, humming tunes like “A Christmas Song” and “Sparklejollytwinklejingley” for days, and rediscovering what it means to be a family. The network has obtained a small number of group tickets to the show so don’t miss out!
