'Pirates of the Geneseean' Drop Anchors at Genesee Community College

Genesee Community College alumni are invited to drop anchors at their alma mater for the second all-class Grand Reunion on Saturday, April 12, 2008. The Pirates of the Geneseean evening begins with the second annual Alumni Hall of Fame Inductee Celebration at 4:30 pm in the Conable Technology Building – First Floor Lobby. Light refreshments will be served during the reception for the yet to be named Alumni Hall of Fame inductees.

The Pirates Party will also take place from 5:30-7:00 pm in the Conable Technology Building - First Floor Lobby, and will feature light refreshments. This is a great time to reconnect with the old crew, spy out new opportunities, and shiver some timbers together!

At 7:30 pm all hands will report to the Forum Players presentation of Peter Pan in the Stuart Steiner Theatre. Advance reservations for Peter Pan are required by Wednesday, April 9, 2008 to secure the block of Pirate seats together. Tickets are $6 general admission and $3 senior citizens. Based on the play by James M. Barrie, with music by Mark Charlap and lyrics by Carolyn Leigh, Peter Pan follows the adventures of Wendy, John, and Michael as they travel to Neverland with the mischievous little boy who wouldn’t grow up, including an epic battle with the nefarious Captain Hook.

“After the wildly successful Jimmy Buffet Bash shared by Genesee Community College alumni in 2006, we wanted to create another themed party with a fun yet slightly different spin,” Patti Pacino, Alumni Coordinator said. “With fantastical endeavor occurring in the College’s theatre that night, what better to way to enjoy the night than a celebration of old salty dog friends? And who knows? Maybe even Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom will show up in costume!”
