Parrots of the Caribbean
- Known as: “the #1 Jimmy Buffett tribute act in the country”
- The act: five seasoned musicians doing a spot-on rendition of Jimmy Buffet and the Coral Reefer Band
- The costumes: a mix of pirate garb, parrot garb, and Key West fashion sensibilities
- Playing the role of Jimmy: Dave Albrecht, whose Buffet-parroting skills have led to gigs at the Imperial Palace Casino in Las Vegas
- What to expect: greatest hits such as “Margaritaville” and “Cheeseburgers in Paradise,” beach balls, and a good chance of a conga line led by a parrot and a shark
- In other words: what Jimmy Buffett calls “a typical Monday”
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.
