Gaslight celebrates 50 years

In spring 1963, a Saint Mary’s musical tradition was born as the melodies of Gaslight first delighted audiences. On Saturday, April 21, the SMU alumni community will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Gaslight with a special alumni performance in the Toner Center Dining Room.

The alumni show will include performers of Gaslight from several generations.  Alumni performers will be from the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and recent years. A special highlight will be a performance from the original Oldie Moldie All-Stars.

A reception is planned at 6 p.m., and the alumni Gaslight will begin at 7 p.m.

This year’s student Performances of Gaslight are 8 and 10:30 p.m. today, Friday, April 20, and 10:30 p.m. Saturday, April 21. Tickets are $6 in advance or $7 at the door. Faculty and staff can receive one free ticket by contacting Lance Thompson, Ext. 1686 or
