Beauty and the Beast
A man is cursed to wear the shell of a monster, only to be freed if a woman can see past his physical form to the goodness left inside him. But with so many years draped in fur, his heart has begun to match the beast he appears to be. For his world-premiere interpretation of Beauty and the Beast, Tom Gold, a former soloist with the New York City Ballet, brings this classic French fairy tale to light-hearted life with a cast of youthful dancers. Imaginative costumes and an elaborate enchanted castle combine to whisk audiences of all ages away to a land where magic is real.
Accompanying the main feature is Cliques, a ballet by Akron’s own Tom Smith. A contemporary tale exploring conflict and resolution, the work relays relatable messages for all ages.<p>
Akron Civic Theatre
The medieval carvings, European antiques, and Italian alabaster sculptures at the Akron Civic Theatre absorb the ascending harmonies of symphony concerts and heavy rock ‘n’ roll alike. Built in 1929 to resemble a Moorish castle, the venue has maintained much of its historic charm, including the exceedingly rare atmospheric ceiling, in which stars twinkle and clouds float by as mesmerizingly as the last few corn flakes atop a bowl of milk.
E.J. Thomas Hall
Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
