Second Annual Young Alumnae Association Homecoming November 28

Friday, November 28, 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Marian Commons

Alumnae from Class Years 2011–2014 are invited HOME for pizza, karaoke and fun in the Marian Commons on Friday, November 28. The merriment and mirth takes place from 5:30-7:30 p.m. This is a free event for college-age alumnae, but registration is necessary. Please register by November 21 at www.magnificaths.org/yaahomecoming.

Special offer for those who attend the YAA Homecoming: half price tickets at the box office for the fall musical, “Pajama Game!” Curtain at 7:30 p.m. Set in 1954 in a Cedar Rapids, Iowa pajama factory, “The Pajama Game” follows the journey of Babe Williams and Sid Sorokin, two employees in the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory. Add to this the antics of other wacky characters and some beautiful, fun and timeless music, such as the songs “Steam Heat,” “Hey There” and “Hernando's Hideaway,” and you have a musical that presents a serious message about workers' rights and corporate greed, while never forgetting to entertain.
