The new Warren Miller film Wintervention is a high-definition action showcase of skiers on extreme terrain in Canada, California, New Zealand, Antarctica, and beyond. On December 11, see the Ryan Humbert Band at their 2nd annual Strung Out for the Holidays benefit concert for the Akron Canton Regional Foodbank, performing Humbert’s originals as well as holiday and radio classics with a special bonus: help him celebrate his thirtieth birthday immediately after the performance with DJs, dancing, and cake in the lobby. For a holiday spectacle that doesn't involve a dog dressed as Santa, scope out the Christmas Under the Stars concert to hear holiday classics sung by the witty British singer Helen Welch, backed by show choirs from Miller South and ETC. The theater is especially excited to present the return of The Festival of Nations, with a family-friendly cultural food tastings, interactive activities, and international performances ranging from Allegro Dance Company’s Italian moves to Irish step dancing to the Native American Lakota Nation Dancers.
Designed in 1929 by theater architect John Eberson, the Akron Civic Theater is a cultural landmark, providing a wide array of family-friendly entertainment. The interior of the auditorium showcases an elaborate, Moorish-influenced décor with Italian alabaster statues and a ceiling that reproduces a twinkling, star-lit sky complete with tiny meteorite strikes.
