Student-run theater group to raise funds for Alice Paul House with shows

TOST and Turned, the nonprofit, student-run theater organization, will once again put on performances to raise money for local charities.

These acts will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday in Pratt Auditorium.

This semester’s proceeds will be going to The Alice Paul House, a domestic abuse shelter in Indiana.

In previous years, TOST and Turned has donated profits to ICCAP, Four Footed Friends, Indiana Public Libraries and The Alice Paul House.

Each one-act performance is written and directed by students.

“This year’s spring one-acts feature brilliantly written shows by IUP students,” said Amelia Stevens (sophomore, dance and theater), one of the show’s actresses. “It’s a free and fun event where you can support your peers and enjoy some hilarious plays.”

Admission for the event is free, but a $3 donation is recommended for everyone who attends.

“It is so amazing how a group of students can work together to write, direct and produce their own shows,” said Katrina Kudla (nursing), another performer in the shows.

“You can expect four one-acts that span from hilarious to scary,” Gabrielle Reed (senior, English) said. “All the shows are fun and exciting and a great display of our students’ talents.”
