PENN Presents . . .

PENN Presents brings one of the Celtic world's greatest treasures for a concert that will transplant the audience into a sphere of Celtic melodies. The all-Irish quintet Altan will perform at the Annenberg Center's Zellerbach Theatre on March 16 at 8 p.m. Altan's performances range from poignant irish songs to hard-hitting reels and jigs. For tickets, call (215) 898-3900 or online Co-sponsored by WYBE Television.
Pucci: Sport explores the idiosyncrasies of nine popular sports in nine innings: basketball, baseball, boxing, surfing, frisbee, hockey, tennis, football, and badminton. The theatre will be transformed into a mini sports arena and the show will open with members of the Penn Glee Club singing the National Anthem, followed by the thrill of buzzers blasting, authentic cheers between sections, lots of razzmatazz and a traditional seventh-inning stretch. Performances are at the Annenberg Center's Harold Prince Theatre March 19 through March 21 at 7:30 p.m., and March 22 and March 23, at 8 p.m. Sponsored by Dance Celebration/NextMove, Dance Affiliates and PENN Presents. For tickets, call (215) 898-3900 or order online at

Rush Tickets for the Washington Ballet are available at the Annenberg Center Box Office, Monday through Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. and one half hour before the performances at the venue box office. See March At Penn for dates and times of shows.
