'SNL's' Gasteyer to lead Northwestern homecoming parade

Actress Ana Gasteyer, of "Saturday Night Live" fame, will serve as grand marshal of Northwestern University's homecoming parade on Oct. 17 in Evanston, the school announced Wednesday. Gasteyer, who is also known to Chicago theater audiences for her starring role in the high-profile local run of "Wicked," got her degree from Northwestern's School of Communication in 1989. The parade is part of a full weekend of events, and Gasteyer is also slated to appear in a reunion panel for students and alums, the university announced. Past grand marshals include sports radio host Mike Greenberg and comedian Stephen Colbert. — Tribune staff
