There are just 10 days left until THON 2022, and we have one more dancer to introduce! Our third and final dancer is Jess, a senior double majoring in criminology and women’s studies.

“I got involved in THON because I needed to find a home at Penn State, and because I was in love with the cause. I stayed involved because I found a home, in both the families and the volunteers I’m so lucky to have known.

I’m most looking forward to seeing our families during THON weekend!! We haven’t seen Theresa in person since THON 2020 and I’m so excited to see her and give her the biggest hug. Erin and Max are always just the most fun to be around and I can’t wait to see them and all of us be in THON together. Also to watch Julie hug all 600+ dancers.”

Introducing our next THON dancer, Hannah Myers! Hannah is a senior majoring in kinesiology, and she served as one of our THON chairs for THON 2020 and 2021.

“I got involved with thon because my big was a thon chair my freshman year and my sister in law danced when she was a senior. After that, I knew I wanted to be a chair and was for 2 years (I even planned an entire mini-thon with the Singing Lions last year when it was virtual). I’m most excited to be back in the BJC, dancing with my friends, celebrating with our families and seeing the final reveal at the end!!”

THON is in 4 weeks, and every week we’ll be introducing one of our dancers! First up is Julie Byrne, a senior secondary social studies education major with a theatre minor!

“Both of my siblings danced in THON as many people close to us have been affected by cancer, including our mother, and I knew I wanted to continue what they started. I am most looking forward to the line dance, I absolutely adore when people dance together and its truly unlike anything else I’ve ever witnessed.”

Hi everyone! Local THON chair here. I hope you are all having a safe summer and are doing what you can to stay connected! The new THON chairs and myself have been catching up with both our families, The McHughs and the Illicetes, and they're doing great! Mary and Theresa had mentioned that they would love to hear from some alumni and members! Please let us know if you would be interested in doing a zoom call with the Illicetes and/or the McHughs. Mary also said that if anyone would like to post an update, they are welcome to post on the All About Theresa page! Hopefully we can get a video call with each of our families before the start of school! Theresa also was telling us about how she hasn't ever had much luck with having a pen pal but loves the idea of them! If anyone would like to be a pen pal with Theresa, you can message me for their address! FTK and YFIT, Hannah

A C T R E S S E S // A C T O R S 🎬 Coming of age drama bridging the generational gap between now and then once an elderly woman by the name of Rose begins to reveal her sadistic past to two lost youths.
I am so pleased to follow the PSU Thespians. I was inducted in the '80's and performed in The Boys From Syracuse, Guys & Dolls and Anything Goes. In addition I performed with Men's Glee Club, Orchesis Dance Company, State College Community Theatre and University Resident Theatre Company before embarking on a professional career in the theatre in my 20's and 30's. I made some great friends in the Thespians, some unfortunately no longer with us. However, I have great memories of rehearsals & productions. All the best to you current members.
Is there anyone on exec board in town for the summer?
I'm wondering what folks think about adding an In Memorium section in the programs to honor Penn State Thespians who have died recently. You could get the information from the Penn Stater. Eight of our members are listed as passed in the current issue.
Guys PSA Broadway has ripped off Connor's masterpiece. Please join in the fight to take down the competition.
Assuming that the tradition of the Robe still stands, is the paragraphed used to introduce the Robe and/or list of recipients available anywhere online? Ditto for the Banner, assuming same.
