Performing Arts Center and The Times Reporter Announce Partnership

The Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas and The Times Reporter announce their partnership to bring the newly formed Come Hear Series to the PAC.


“I’m thrilled to introduce a new series to the PAC season this year,” said David Mitchell, general manager of the Performing Arts Center. “Our Come Hear Series will introduce our audiences to new artists they otherwise might not get a chance to experience. I really think people are going to enjoy these artists and I encourage them to Come Hear some brilliant music in our exceptional PAC environment.”


"The Timers Reporter is proud to support the Come Hear Series,” explains Paul Reynolds, general manager of The Times Reporter. “All great musicians and performers begin their careers somewhere, and we are excited to be able to have these very talented musicians here in Tuscarawas County.”


International award winner David Myles kicks off the series with his mix of folk/roots music on September 7. Hovering somewhere around a magic spot between James Taylor and Justin Timberlake, David’s diverse set of musical tools has garnered a staggering number of prestigious nominations and awards and numerous high profile music placements around the globe, from the hit television series “Parenthood,” to Australia’s popular “Packed to the Rafters.”


The series continues on March 3 with An Intimate Evening With: Royal Wood & Diana Chittester. Juno nominated Royal as one of the most accomplished singer/songwriters in Canada, and he was chosen to tour with Bonnie Raitt on her 2017 Canadian tour. Diana’s solo show is brought to life by her signature percussive multi-part playing, mimicking a full band on a solo acoustic guitar, blended with intelligent and articulate lyrics.


Rosie & the Riveters closes out the series on April 3. These fiercely talented and sassy dames perform uplifting folk music with a vintage 1940s flair. Their original songs feature sophisticated harmonies, body percussion, scintillating dance moves, humor and just enough ooh-la-la to keep your toes tapping long after the show is over.


Tickets for individual shows in the Come Hear Series are $30. The full series package of three shows can be purchased at a discount for $60. Both individual tickets and packages are on sale now at the Performing Arts Center box office, 330-308-6400, or online at The box office is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.


The Performing Arts Center’s 2017-2018 Season is sponsored by Michael Taylor Insurance and Financial Incorporated, an Allstate Agency.


Free parking is available for all shows. Kent State Tuscarawas is located at 330 University Drive NE in New Philadelphia.
