Penn State Center Stage to Perform Altar Boyz

Penn State Centre Stage will be presenting performances of the award-winning play, Altar Boyz, on Sept. 16-18 at the Citizens Bank Theater. The performances, which feature five musical theatre majors from PSU, are set to start at 7:30 each night with an admission cost of $3. The performances are general admission.

Based on a book by Kevin Del Aguila, with music and lyrics by Gary Adler and Michael Patrick Walker, Altar Boyz is a musical comedy about a Christian boy band finishing up their national “Raise the Praise” tour. The musical had a five-year run off-Broadway, from 2005 to 2010.

Stephen Brotebeck, a MFA Candidate in Penn State’s Directing for the Musical Theatre program, is directing the production. This will be the first of two projects that Brotebeck will be directing this year.

Poking fun at both boy bands and contemporary Christian rock, Altar Boyz will appeal to musical aficionados or simply those looking for some laughs.
