Children's Christmas Party

Thanks to all of the alumni and their families who joined us on Dec. 5, 2015 for the Theatre Department's Children's Show, Junie B. Jones in Jingle Bells Batman Smells and the Children's Christmas Party in the Rogalski Center Ballroom following the show.  This event is free for alumni and their families.  This yearly event is made possible by a partnership between the Galvin Fine Arts Center.  The Alumni Office hosts a Christmas party for the children of St. Ambrose alumni each December in tandem with the Theatre Department's annual children's production.

FAQs regarding this event

  • How long is the production?  The show is 1 hour and 10 minutes during the weekend performances.  It is being adjusted to a 50 minute show for the school groups that come during the week.
  • What should I wear to the event?  Wear whatever makes you comfortable.  Some people dress up and others wear jeans.
  • Where should I park?  It depends on when and how far you want to walk.  The show is in the Galvin Fine Arts Center, and parking is available in all of the lots west of Gaines Street.  The party is in the Rogalski Center and parking is available in the lot on the corner of Lombard and Ripley.  You are welcome to move your car between the show and the party, or you can choose to take a short walk across campus.
