"Iolanthe" is a topsy-turvy farce featuring the British House of Lords and a band of magical fairies. Hilarity ensues as identities are confused, long-lost lovers are reunited, and the great peers of England are outwitted by a half-fairy/half-mortal named Strephon. The production will feature the Penn State Glee Club in the rousing "Entrance of the Peers" and is a co-production between the Penn State School of Music and the State Theatre. Don't miss this opportunity to see the stars of tomorrow on stage today.
