It’s crazy to think about, but the end of spring semester is quickly approaching. As the days get warmer (hopefully) and final exams approach, it’s easy to get caught up in the stress of final projects and exams. However, April is one of the busiest times at Penn State for reasons other than schoolwork and exams — it has some of the best Penn State events that will be sure to end your year on a high note. VALLEY is here to remind you to mark your calendar for the following days:
April 17, 18 — JERSEY BOYS
One of the best perks of coming to a big school like Penn State is the guarantee of top-notch performances, from concerts to plays to Broadway musicals. One such performance is coming this April 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Eisenhower Auditorium. JERSEY BOYS is a Tony and Grammy Award-winning musical about four Rock and Roll Hall of Famers. This show promises to bring you a night of high quality entertainment, so find more information and buy your tickets here before it’s too late.
April 21 – Blue & White Game, Film Festival
Penn State’s Blue & White weekend is an iconic university tradition and a favorite for many students. Though the whole weekend is an affair, Saturday, April 21 is especially chock-full of things to do: tailgating, the fan festival, football player autograph sessions and the actual game itself at 3 p.m. After watching some of your favorite Nittany Lions back on the field, head over to The State Theatre at 7 p.m. to attend the annual Blue & White Film Festival, presented by Penn State Student Film Organization. This event exhibits the films that Penn State students have worked hard on all year to create, and the talent displayed will blow you away.
April 24 — Adam Devine
The funny guy you’ve seen in “Pitch Perfect,” “Modern Family,” “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” and more is paying State College a visit. On April 24 at 8 p.m., comedian Adam DeVine will be performing at the Bryce Jordan Center alongside opening act Adam Ray (who you might know from “The Heat” or “Spy”). Tickets are free for students courtesy of the Student Programming Association, so make sure to grab one at the BJC, Eisenhower Auditorium or the Penn State Downtown Theatre.
April 27 — Movin’ On
Before it’s time to move on from the school year, you have to go to Movin’ On. Another Penn State tradition and student favorite, Movin’ On is a free music festival put on each year at the Intramural Fields. One of the top five largest student-run music festivals in the country, the concert begins at 3:30 p.m. and lasting through most of the day. Movin’ On offers constant entertainment, and this year’s line-up, consisting of Mick Jenkins, Judah & The Lion, Daya, and Logic, will not disappoint. No tickets needed, just come ready to sing, dance, and celebrate moving on!
