'Paranormal State' cast to appear at Penn State Worthington Scranton

January 22, 2010

Members of Worthington Scranton's Paranormal Society are eagerly anticipating the Feb. 12 visit of Penn State alumnus and Penn State Paranormal Research Society (PRS) founder Ryan Buell and his castmates from A&E's "Paranormal State" television series. The cast will appear on campus to talk about the paranormal events that they have researched and worked on over the past few years.

The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. in the campus' Multi-Purpose Building. The event is free to Worthington Scranton students, but is open to campus staff and faculty, as well as the public. Tickets for non-students are $10, with all proceeds being donated to this year's THON fundraiser, which raises money for the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center's Four Diamond Funds and childhood cancer research. To purchase tickets, call 570-963-2700.

Buell founded PRS while a student at Penn State University and has continued on as its director since then. Paranormal State debuted on A&E on Dec. 10, 2007, with 2.5 million viewers watching the first two back-to-back episodes, making it the third-most watched show on A&E since 2004.

For those unfamiliar with the group or the show, the group receives requests from people around the country who have witnessed or are living with paranormal activity. Buell and his team then travel to selected locations around the country to investigate.

Worthington Scranton's Paranormal Society is anticipating a large crowd due to the show's huge following and because of a high level of interest in the subject.
