Penn State Thespians to Hold Annual MasquerAIDS Benefit

Penn State’s oldest student group will have one of its most important performances of the year tonight.

The Penn State Thespians are set to host the annual cabaret MasquerAIDS benefit tonight at 8 p.m. in Heritage Hall. Like every year, all profits from the event will be donated to an AIDS charity; this year, AIDS Resource on Sparks Street will get the donation.

The mission of AIDS Resource is to provide culturally-sensitive support to people infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS, and to prevent further infection through education and outreach programs.

This year’s theme for the benefit is “You’re Gonna Love Tomorrow.” According to MasquerAIDS Chairperson Nicole Suder, this theme uses singing, acting, and dancing to tell a story in two acts. Act I conveys the commitments, regrets, and problems one may face in life, while Act II represents self-expression and the freedom achieved by finding yourself and starting anew. Last minute wedding crises, bad party decisions, unconventional romances, and office revenge schemes are all included in the eleventh year of this special event.

Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $3.00 for students and $4.99 for community members (and not one cent more). Be sure to check it out if you want to support a great cause, great student group, and great tradition.
