Members of Pi Alpha Chemical Society, chemistry’s graduate student social and service organization, volunteered their time on Saturday, June 11th to help Horizon Theatre bring their musical The Toxic Avenger to Piedmont Park. Students assisted with greeting guests, checking tickets and bags, and coordinating VIP and reserved seating. The show took place outside on the Promenade next door to the Atlanta Botanical Garden. The majority of the seats were free and student volunteers were able to stay and enjoy the show.

Toxic Avenger tells the story of an aspiring scientist who vows to save New Jersey from toxic waste. In the process, exposure to toxic waste turns him into a singing superhero…better living through chemistry!
