Open House Legacy Luncheon

Our annual Open House Legacy Reception will take place on Sunday, October 20. We define a “legacy” is anyone who has a family member who graduated from Sacred Heart—mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, sisters, nieces, cousins, and even godmothers! Our host, President Sr. Sheila O’Neill, Ph.D., ASCJ, ’71, asks that you spread the word to all legacy families you know.

Alumnae at the Musical

Friday, November 15, 2019 | 2:00 p.m.
Saturday, November 16, 2019 | 2:00 & 8:00 p.m.
The Shubert Theater

Originally called the “operetta,” the musical has taken place each year since the first students enrolled at the Academy in 1946. Today, musical productions are performed at the historic Shubert Theater in New Haven. Our musical theater program has been recognized with awards from the Broadway High School Theatre Guild and the prestigious HALO awards.

Alumnae at the Musical is always a favorite for many of our graduates. This year Peter Pan will debut on Friday and Saturday, November 15 and 16. It is truly an honor for our students to perform at the Shubert and we hope that many of you will be there. Also, if you wish to purchase an ad to support the musical, click here.

Every alumna who attends any of the three performances receives something from the Alumnae office upon arrival in the lobby, and all alumnae are acknowledged before the curtain goes up.
