Dinner Dance Notice to Students

Please excuse the chaos in Billera Hall this week. The Billera Hall Alumni Courts are being decorated for the 37th Annual DeSales University Dinner Dance. Close to 700 DeSales alumni and friends will gather to raise money for the DSU student financial aid program.

While we recognize blocking the pathways and entrances is an inconvenience, this is a major campus event for the University and gives us the ability to offer financial aid and scholarships to you, our students.

For your safety and to avoid property damage, please abide by the signage posted and do not cross police barriers.

Thank you!


Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival Seeking Child Actors

Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival is seeking one African-American elementary aged male, one White elementary/middle school aged male, and one Latvian-American elementary aged girl to play roles in Ragtime this summer at PSF. Rehearsals begin May 22, opening is June 13, closing is July 1. Rehearsals for child actors will be mostly nights and weekends. This is a fully professional production with Equity actors and a number of other early-career professional actors. These three roles will be cast with non-union local child actors. Actors cast in these three roles will each receive a single $100 honorarium, intended to help defray the parent’s/guardian’s transportation expense of the daily commute. (Reliable daily transportation is a necessity.) The real value is the experience of a lifetime and a professional credit for the resume. There will be 8 performances per week, Tuesday through Sunday nights, with matinees on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The actors must be fully available for all rehearsals and performances.

Please go to for character breakdowns and more information. Please schedule an audition appointment by emailing More information and music will be provided in advance via email to prepare.
