March 5th, 6th, 12th, 14th: A Very Poppy Purim 

Wait, so you drink like it’s St. Patrick’s Day, dress up like it’s Halloween, and put on an interactive musical?

What is this? It’s Purim, of course. Will you celebrate with us?

Every year, A Very Awesome Purim throws a big Purim party and puts on a musical about a drunken king, an evil prime minister, and a queen who saves the entire Jewish population. The production strikes a careful balance of off-color humor, on-key parodies, and surprisingly poignant lessons about cultural acceptance. With your help, we choose a theme—this year: “Pop Legends”—and translate it into an original musical telling the story of Purim.

March 12th: Party like a Queen: Purim at Penn

Purim, or the Feast of Lots, is a joyous holiday that recounts the protection of Jewish peoples from a threatened massacre during the Persian period.
Now, Purim is considered by some to be feminist holiday, due to the ancient queens that played major roles within the historic events.
Join the Penn Museum as we celebrate this festive occasion with a queer twist. Guests will enjoy special highlight tours of the galleries, crafts, music, and end the night with a bang: a costume contest!
Throughout the evening, we will be hosting a Donation Drive for the Gloria Casarez Residence. The Gloria Casarez Residence, is an LGBTQ+ young adult community housing space.
