Alumni Christmas Parties

We work with generous alumni to host parties in various areas of the country whenever possible (past favorites have included parties in Naples, Florida, and New York City).  At this time, there are no plans for any 2015 SAU alumni Christmas Parties (other than the yearly events listed below).  If you are interested in hosting a 2016 holiday event, please contact the Alumni Office.  Make sure to get the announcement by updating your contact information with us here.

In partnership with 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.  The production this year is Junie B. Jones in Jingle Bells Batman Smells.  We hope you'll join us on Saturday, Dec. 5. 

About the show: Junie B. Jones, first-grader, is super-excited about the upcoming Holiday Sing-Along and Secret Santa gift exchange at her school.  Too bad tattletale May keeps ruining all of Junie B.'s fun.  So when Junie B. draws May's name for Secret Santa, she comes up with the perfect plan to teach her new nemesis a lesson!  But will the Christmas spirit of peace and goodwill interfere before she can give you-know-who what she deserves?

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.
