Join Us for a Fantastic BSLUG Theatre Night at the Huntington Sept. 17

We’ve purchased a block of orchestra tickets at $25 each to see the Huntington Theatre’s production of “Bus Stop,” a heartwarming, classic American comedy. What makes this event even more special is that UCSC alum Miranda Hoffman, class of ’95.*, who is the costume designer for “Bus Stop,” will meet with us before the play. You’ll not only have the opportunity to meet her and wish her well for this first performance at the Huntington, but you’ll also get to meet fellow alums before we’re seated. All friends and family are welcome.
