Performing Arts Council To Host Theatre Preview

The Penn State Performing Arts Council (PAC) will host its first Theatre Preview on Thursday, March 3, at 8:00 p.m. in the HUB Flex Theater. This inaugural event will feature five of Penn State’s premier student theatrical groups: Wonderlust Theatre Company, Blackbox Theatre Company, Penn State Thespians, No Refund Theatre, and the School of Theatre.

PAC’s tagline “Gathering the Arts to Share the Arts” simplifies its mission of forging connections between the performing arts groups at Penn State. This year, PAC is focusing on facilitating collaboration between different groups to flourish the performing arts community as a whole. The Theatre Preview is the second event PAC has held this year to foster these relationships, in addition to the A Cappella Sampler that occurred in November.

“One of PAC’s main goals is to unite the arts community to make it stronger,” PAC Theatre Marshal Melissa Kreider said. “so we thought that bringing the theatre community together for one common goal would allow for the groups to showcase their upcoming work for the community and possibly spark interest in working together more in the future.”

Each of the participating groups will be showcasing scenes and songs from the productions that they will bring to Penn State this semester in order to give students a sampling of what is to come after spring break. School of Theatre will be performing selections from “Hair,” while Penn State Thespians will be performing selections from “Into the Woods.”

“The PAC Theatre Preview is going to be a great sampling of all the awesome acting and singing talent and will be the best way of guaranteeing that you check out the show that is best for you this semester,” PAC President John Connolly explained.

Students can purchase tickets from the Theatre Preview for $2 from any of the performing groups, and School of Theatre students should contact Kira Robbins for ticketing information. A limited number of tickets will also be available at the door Thursday night.
