Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries
Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries – Teaser
Based on the beloved children’s cartoon, Scooby-Doo Live! Musical Mysteries takes audience members on a fun yet goose-bump-inducing jaunt as they watch the Mystery Inc. gang and their gumshoe great dane, Scooby-Doo, solve a brand-new case. The fashionable Daphne, preppy Fred, bookish Velma, spacy Shaggy, and of course, the easily frightened Scoob, all load up the Mystery Machine to race to the scene of the latest paranormal crime—a local theater haunted by a rascally ghost. As they break out into choreographed song-and-dance numbers, from the whimsical TV theme to original tunes such as “We’re Mystery Inc.” and “Round Every Corner,” the gang runs into a host of colorful characters in the form of a tap-dancing skeleton and a singing barbershop duo. Fans can expect well-known bits from the show, laughing in familiarity at Scooby-Doo’s broken English, the reveal of the culprit, and tips from Shaggy on how to grow a beard only on your chin.
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.
