We are extremely excited about our Phoenix Alumni Reunion over the Remembrance Day long weekend, November 11-13, 2016! The Department of Theatre will open its doors to five decades of alumni – and their families – for a weekend of reminiscing with old friends and meeting new ones!
With amazing support from our sponsors, iA Financial Group and UVic Alumni Association, we’ve kept the prices super accessible so that as many people as possible can attend. There are four reunion events over the weekend, and each one is ONLY $5!
We’re also asking all alumni, faculty and staff to pay a small registration fee. Just $5 until September 30. $10 after October 1 and $15 after November 1. Book early and save.
Deadline for Registration is Midnight, November 7.
