Actors To Put On Benefit For HIV/AIDS Treatment
This month, Penn State students have the opportunity to support charities through song and dance other than THON. Tonight, Penn State Thespians will present MasquerAIDS 2012, an evening of musical numbers from films in order to raise money for the AIDS Project of Centre County. The theme this year will be “From Screen to Scene,” and Thespians will perform segments and songs from Armageddon, Shrek, Titanic, Toy Story 3 and more.
Juliet Carrasquillo, the MasquerAIDS Chairperson, says that the Thespians develop the entire stage production from scratch. They do this to “educate, inform and raise awareness about AIDS while entertaining the audience with an artistic show.” According to Carrasquillo, MasquerAIDS has been an integral part of Penn State’s oldest student-run organization for nearly ten years. In 2011, Thespians raised more than $1,100 and they are expecting to raise even more proceeds for the AIDS Project of Centre County tonight.
MasquerAIDS 2012 begins at 7:00pm in Heritage Hall. Tickets are $3.00 for students and $4.99 for community members.
