ALTOONA, Pa. — Penn State Altoona’s spring theatre production, “Big Noodles” by Aaron James, will run March 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Wolf Kuhn Theatre of the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. This production includes adult themes that may be triggering for some viewers, including sexual abuse, incest, and violence.
James is an alumnus of Penn State Altoona’s Multidisciplinary Studies program and penned “Big Noodles” for a playwriting class. The production is directed by Leila McCrumb, a graduate of Penn State Altoona and part-time instructor in theatre at the college. Talkbacks with the playwright and director will be held after each performance.
“Big Noodles” tells the story of a young sexual abuse victim named Alice, who attempts to process the impact these traumatic events have had on her current life and relationships. McCrumb says, “Though the subject matter is difficult to face, these situations happen every day. It is important that we keep the conversation going with the aim of one day finding a solution. We hope with all our hearts to see you there and that you’ll join in on the conversation.”
This performance is free and open to the public. For further information, call 814-949-5452.
