Make a difference in the life of a child

USITT is an organization composed of various different Theatre Design and Technology + Stage Management Majors within the School of Theatre at Penn State University. The United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) connects performing arts design and technology communities to ensure a vibrant dialog among practitioners, educators, and students. Our group meets biweekly do discuss different events happening within our organization and within the School of Theatre, including performances, fundraisers, and other events. We are excited to being joining THON, as it is a great way to give back to the community and get involved in the Penn State community.

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, US Institute of Theatre Technology, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Since 1977, THONTM has raised over $190 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Health Children's Hospital. Throughout our partnership, we have ensured that over 4,000 families have not seen a single medical bill. In addition, the local research that is being done is making a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure. Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon.
By supporting THON™, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

US Institute of Theatre Technology is a Penn State organization that participates in THON™, in addition to our organization's primary purpose. Throughout the year, Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students across all campuses by facilitating fundraisers, as well as providing emotional support to Four Diamonds Families.
