Inaugural Alumni Picnic & History Night

May 27 @ 5:30 pm - 11:30 pm


New Place, New Celebration, Same Great History Night!

Come break in our new Spring Training home, meet the 2018 Bluecoats, and celebrate the same great History Night we’ve come to love! We’re taking advantage of the beautiful new scenery at Indiana Wesleyan to augment the usual History Night experience with an Alumni Picnic!

Join us on the afternoon of Sunday, May 27th for an ensemble rehearsal open to alumni. The rehearsal will end in a run through of the still-young Bloo18 production. After rehearsal? A picnic with alumni, staff, and the 2018 Bluecoats! This picnic is the perfect opportunity to relive life on the road, meet the current members of your section, and even meet your Adopt-a-Member face to face!

In the evening we’ll have the same great History Night we all love in one of the three beautiful auditoriums available to us at Indiana Wesleyan University.
