With more than 80 seasons of emotive experience, The Youngstown Playhouse has been treating Mahoning Valley audiences to Broadway plays, youth theater, and other quality community productions for generations. One of the season’s six main-stage plays, the Tony Award–winning musical, Oliver!, carouses audiences into the chilly alleys, dark corners, and haggis-laden streets of Victorian-era London in a show-stopping adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic coming-of-age story. Centered around the trials and tribulations of a penniless orphan, Oliver! will delight theater-goers of all ages as they follow along with his rags-to-riches story, and sing along to famous songs such as Consider Yourself, You've Got to Pick a Pocket or Two and Oklahoma! . Grab today's dramatic Groupon and call to reserve your seats.

The Youngstown University Theater treats spectacle-seeking audiences to scholarly thespians bringing musicals, tragedies, and dramedies to the kind of vibrant life that will have most mad scientists cackling with glee. The 2011–2012 season's two centerpieces are A Streetcar Named Desire and Medea, both timeless explorations of human nature, disintegrating familial bonds, and quirky names. But the company also raises the profile on lesser-known works such as Neil LaBute's Reasons to be Pretty—a paradoxical love story about the impossible expectations of love—and Lawrence Fishburne's intense, gritty Riff Raff. At the other end of the emotional spectrum is The 1940s Radio Hour, a delightful all-ages affair that hearkens back to a bygone era of big bands, live radio broadcasts from the Algonquin, and FDR's famous fireside raves. The schedule also includes two one-act operas and a performance by the YSU Dance Ensemble.

After five years away from American stages, the immutable hard-rock juggernaut Guns N’ Roses reuses its illusions to whip crowds into a frenzy during a notoriously raucous live show. Enigmatic siren Axl Rose, beloved for his punk-rock stance against prolificacy, leads his wrecking crew of Roses through a two-hour tour of greatest hits culled from the band's groundbreaking debut album, Appetite for Destruction, the long-awaited Chinese Democracy, and everything in between. The group soars and shines throughout a marathon performance, ranging from turbo-charged rockers such as “Welcome to the Jungle” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” through ballads such as “November Rain.” With hatless new axeman Dj Ashba stepping into the shoes of Slash, and The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson replacing Duff McKagan, Guns N’ Roses is recharged and ready to quench destructive appetites with pure organic rock wrung from handpicked bandanas.

Winners of 16 2010 Youngstown Area Community Theatre Marquee Awards—including best direction and best play—The Victorian Players present plays written in and inspired by the Victorian era. The company is dedicated to presenting family-friendly theater, eschewing stagefare that includes profanity, violence, or graphic onstage depictions of drunken robots. The Madwoman of Chaillot tells the story of the titular character, a quirky aristocrat who gathers an army of café-goers, performers, and fellow madwomen to halt the machinations of an evil coterie of businessmen planning to dig up Paris for its underground stores of oil. Shows take place in a restored 1890s Victorian church, imparting a period-appropriate architectural flavor to the dramatic proceedings.
