State Theatre To Screen “The Pact”

On March 31st at 7:00pm, “The Pact“,  a romantic comedy written, produced, and directed by Penn State theatre professor Matt Toronto, will premiere at the State Theatre.

The cast and crew of “The Pact”  include several Penn Staters in addition to Toronto: production designer Renee Kredell, a faculty member, and cast members Kira Lace Hawkins and Nika Ericson, a current student in and an alumna of the Penn State School of Theatre, respectively. They will be in attendance during the premiere and will host a talkback session and a small reception following the showing.

According to the film’s IMDB page, “The Pact” is about two brothers, who, having both been dumped by their ladies, make a depression- and alcohol- influenced pact: “No women for a year!” The rest of the story, of course, revolves around this pact and the “almost magical” challenges that both brothers face because of it.

“The Pact” won the “Best of Fest” award at the South Dakota Film Festival (2011), best feature in the American International Film Festival (2011), and is schedule to be screened at the Starlite, Buffalo Niagara, Columbia Gorge, Lewiston Auburn, New Hope, Fort Myers, Bare Bones, River Bend and Black Hills film festivals.

The premiere on the 31st will also feature a short film competition including three shorts by Penn State film students.

The State Theatre will screen “The Pact” from March 31st to April 4th. Tickets are $8 for the general public and $6 for students and seniors, and can be purchased at the State Theatre box office or online at www.thestatetheatre.org.
