Penn State Centre Stage To Perform ‘Hit The Wall’ October 3 To 12

Penn State Centre Stage’s production of “Hit the Wall, a story about the Stonewall Uprising and its impact, will take to the stage from October 3 to 12 at the Pavilion Theatre.

Directed by Penn State alumnus Robert W. Schneider, the show revives the historical story of the Stonewall Riots, a police raid gone wrong in Greenwich Village in 1969. The show comments on the marginalization of the LGBTQ+ community during that time and its pivotal role in the queer rights movement.

“‘Hit the Wall’ is that special show that you will never stop thinking about,” Schneider said. “It’s raw, visceral, passionate, and a truly devastating and life-affirming revolution.”

The show will touch on topics surrounding race, sexuality, gender identity, and will use language that is seen in those discussions. Sexual content, adult language, sexual violence, and violence will also be present in the production.

Evening performances will take place at 7:30 p.m., and tickets for students cost $15. General admission preview performance tickets cost $20, while evening performances cost $23.

Students not enrolled in Penn State’s College of Arts and Architecture can see the show for free by signing up here.
