Here we are, everyone. We’re officially two weeks away spring finals. You’re no stranger to this part of the semester, and that beautiful sunset behind a laptop full of papers and exam materials serves as a reminder of exactly how torturous this time of year can be. Here at PAC, we’re no strangers to the stress and pressure that spring brings, and we’ve decided that there’s no better time than now for some entertainment.
On Thursday, April 28th, at 7:30 PM in Schwab Auditorium, the Performing Arts Council invites you to attend Making an Impact - our first annual performing arts showcase. Without giving away too much about the program, expect to see stunning performances from high-profile institutions like RAM Squad and The Penn State Thespians, alongside intense, intimate acts by some of Penn State’s more niche performers like W.O.R.D.S. and Penn State Taiko. In addition to these individual performances, there will be a number of never-before-seen collaborations between several of our university’s performance groups. For an added bonus, come see Mike the Mailman make an appearance as one of our many guest emcees!
Having booked sixteen acts, our showcase will be the largest and most diverse performing arts collaboration to ever occur at Penn State. Admission is free, and tickets will be available in the HUB from April 26 to the 28. If you’re stuck inside, you can get them online here.
This will be the final performance of the year for many of Penn State’s favorite entertainers, and for the many seniors in the showcase, their last performance ever. Seize this opportunity while you can. Come support Penn State’s vivacious arts community and witness this unforgettable event!
