ABOUT OSIRIS


> HISTORY

Osiris Senior Society, founded in the spring of 2013 by Lainie Huston and Jackson Foster, brings together senior leaders and outstanding members of the performing arts community at the University of Pennsylvania. The society draws its name from the god Osiris, who was believed by some in ancient Greco-Egyptian times to have been the god who brought together the nine muses. Similarly, the society provides a forum for students of different art forms, including theatre, tech, dance, speech, and vocal and instrumental music, to strengthen ties across the performing arts community. 


> EVENTS

Senior Showcase

Each May, members perform in an annual senior showcase that highlights our members' talents and fosters collaborative performance. Our members perform various original pieces to put on an amazing show.

Collabs for Charity

Collabs for Charity is our biannual philanthropy event that encourages collaboration between artists across Penn in the performing arts. All proceeds go towards charities chosen by the current Osiris class.

Social Events

Our social chairs plan great events throughout the year including BYOs, formals, happy hours, and more! Members also attend one another's shows and performances each week.
