"Every time our curtain opens we believe the audience will be amazed by the quality of the production they are here to see, as well as our magnificent 50,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art venue," said Dr. Gregg Andrews, dean and chief administrative officer of Kent State Tuscarawas. "Our outstanding schedule includes well-known performers Clint Black, Josh Gracin and Michael Bolton. We are also featuring the national tours of Lord of the Danceand Oklahoma!, the State Ballet Theatre of Russia's Swan Lake, the amazing Peking Acrobats, comedian Bill Engvall and the bluegrass music of Cherryholmes, to name just a few."
Additional events being released for the first time include: the theatrical productions of The Wizard of Oz, A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Improvised Shakespeare Company and Cirque Mechanics' Boom Town; and the musical performances of Ricky Nelson Remembered, Jars of Clay and Percussion Group Cincinnati. The opening week's events announced in June include the Tuscarawas Philharmonic, Jim Brickman, Luna Negra Dance Theater, Cats, A Christmas Carol and Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood.
"We have received a great deal of interest in the opening week schedule of events since its announcement earlier this summer," adds Mike Morelli, general manager of the Performing Arts Center. "We think the public will respond with equal enthusiasm to the remainder of our inaugural season of entertainment."
"Several of our productions have been grouped into packages to provide a savings to our patrons, says Morelli. "The opening week package gives patrons the opportunity to choose at the minimum four events and receive a price break. And with great performers, high-flying performances and perennial crowd pleasers, the opening week has something for everyone!"
