Fresh Beat Band

Drums. Pumpkins. Swimming pools. Pizza. These are just some of the things that can send the four overgrown kids of Nick Jr.’s Fresh Beat Band—and with them, their preschool audience—into transports of wild enthusiasm. Naturally enough, their excitement about the stuff that 4-year-olds’ dreams are made of spills over into ultra-energetic song-and-dance numbers. On a national tour, the band takes their dayglo spectacle from screen to stage, backed by colorful, pulsating productions.

In concert, the musical quartet—Kiki, Shout, Marina, and Twist—jam on guitars, drums, keys, and a DJ deck, often breaking into synchronized dance routines to accompany hits from their show’s first three seasons. “Great Day” bounces along to glass-half-full beats, and “Reach for the Sky” encourages tykes to aspire to dreams even bigger than emptying out an entire cabinet of tupperware. In educational asides—delivered in a style that’s perky but, fortunately for parents, not cloying or condescending—they show kids how the basic materials of movement and music can be used to make a danceable beat or express emotion.

The band’s sold-out shows have caught the attention of the New York Times, who declared the experience “Beatlemania for tots.” USA Today called them “one of the hottest pop acts on the road this year,” and the Daily Beast reported on the concert’s decibel reading by noting that the group “has the juice-box set squealing” while being “poised to become known outside of its target demographic.”

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.
