Research Study “Tunes” into Marcellus Shale with Original Production
Clearfield, Pa. – A play modeled after an old-fashioned radio show and featuring songs, sketches and live music about Marcellus Shale development will be performed Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Clearfield County Career & Technology Center.

The show, “Marcellus Shale: Living with Risk Can Give You Gas,” is part of a Penn State research project looking at how we perceive and understand the risks, rewards and uncertainties in natural gas development. The research is supported by the National Science Foundation.

“We want to explore how people are responding to information about Marcellus Shale development and how they determine whether to trust that information,” said Bill Doan, Penn State professor of theatre, and one of the authors of the play.

The evening also is an opportunity for people to engage with several Penn State scientists with expertise in energy development and the artists involved in the production.

“Marcellus Shale: Living With Risk Can Give You Gas” is free and open to the public. The performance starts at 7 p.m. in the school’s Multi-Purpose Room.
