Penn State Women’s Soccer Preview

The Penn State women's soccer team may have lost seven seniors, but that will not keep them from remaining favorites to win yet another Big Ten title.

Spamalot Will Follow Quest to PSU

The 2005 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical, Monty Python’s Spamalot, is scheduled to bring laughs and non sequiturs to the Eisenhower Auditorium. The musical has the distinction of being “lovingly ripped off from the major motion picture Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” The show will start at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 28 and 29.

The performance is a part of a Broadway tour that will bring King Arthur and his knights across the country. Inevitably, the Lady of the Lake will steal the show since that particular part will be played by Penn State alum Caroline Bowman, who graduated from the Musical Theatre program. This show will be Bowman’s national tour debut.
