Children's theatre program

The Children’s Theatre program created compelling productions that attracted children from all over Pierce County for over 30 years. Homecoming 2006: Lutes at Play will celebrate the dedicated members of Children’s Theatre with special guest Professor Emeritus Eric Nordholm. So, whether you flew across the stage as Peter Pan, sewed the costumes for Sleeping Beauty or built the set for Punch and Judy, you are invited to celebrate the great tradition of Children’s Theatre at Pacific Lutheran University during this year’s Homecoming weekend!

Online Community

If you haven't registered with PLU's Online Community you are missing out. Over 4,000 alumni have already activated their free account. By far the most popular reason to join the community is to look up old friends and colleagues and find a phone number or e-mail address. Once you find a friend you can save them to "My Listings" for easy reference on return visits to the community. If you are planning a trip, you can search for alumni living in your destination city. Whether it's Texas or Paris, a list of current alums will come up whenever you need it, 24/7. To register, visit and click “Online Community” to get started.
