Some of you may be familiar with the children’s book, A Bad Case of Stripes, by David Shannon. If not, it’s a story of a girl who unfortunately catches a disease, but instead of symptoms such as coughing and sneezing, her skin has become a wide array of colors, a striped rainbow! Penn will be showcasing this story tonight!

Tonight, May 11th, a play based on the book is being held in the Studio Theater. You’ll need to get there rather late, and it lasts a good while. You need to arrive through Door A by 12:15 AM, and the play starts 15 minutes later. After the play, at around 1:00 AM, refreshments and punch will be served free in room 181. Please email or to RSVP.
