Of all the things to fill an Amish barn, a variety show is among the least likely. But that's exactly what's inside Amish Country Theater. In a space that boasts the same rustic, wooden construction of a real Amish barn, comedians and musicians lob punchlines and fiddle solos while audiences slap their knees and tap their toes. But the venue isn't totally rooted in the old ways. Climate control plus state-of-the-art sound and lighting transform it into a fitting venue for daily performances. Just outside the theater entrance, meanwhile, the Barnyard Fixins' stand sells tasty treats to keep tummy rumbles from distracting from the performance or attracting lonely bears looking for others to growl with.
The NBA Development League affiliate of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Canton Charge regale hoops fans with basketball savvy from a roster stacked with talent looking to play their way into the NBA. Donning the same yellow-and-red color scheme of their affiliate squad, the Charge compete in the East Division of the NBA D-League. The team plays in the Canton Civic Center, where sounds of cheering fans and squeaking shoes echo off of rafters and occasionally create a high-pitched rhythm that the Charge Girls, the team's dance squad, can groove to.

The Dream Show teams world-famous figure skaters with reality-show dance stars for an evening of crowd-wowing spins, jumps, and flips. Guests can wave as skating champs such as Richard Dornbush and Parker Pennington glide past, turning triple Axels and jumbo pancakes on the tips of their bladed toes. Switching between dancing and skating thanks to an on-rink dance floor, the graceful showcase performs double duty. During the dance portion, Jessica King, a top-10 finalist from Fox's So You Think You Can Dance and a former backup dancer for Lady Gaga, will amaze onlookers with her newest moves. Meanwhile, fellow finalist Gev Manoukian will breakdance on dance floors, ice sheets, and the backs of skating mountain lions. After the show, the arena will host a free open skate, letting kids release pent-up enthusiasm by racing around the rink.
