PARTNERS OF EJ THOMAS HALL
In 2015, E.J. Thomas Hall developed a new two-year partnership between The University of Akron, Akron Civic Theatre and Playhouse Square to present Broadway in Akron.
“People in the Akron area have proven over and over again they will support high-quality touring arts and entertainment programming at both venues. This new relationship helps make sure those programs will continue to be available in our community,” says Akron Civic Theatre Executive Director Howard Parr.
“As a not-for-profit performing arts center, the entertainment on stage is at the core of our work and we feel it is important to help the Akron community experience the performances they have been anticipating in their home, E.J. Thomas Hall,” said Playhouse Square Executive Producer Gina Vernaci.
Other non-Broadway performances scheduled for E.J. Thomas Hall in 2016-17 include:
- Akron Symphony,
- Tuesday Musical Association,
- performances by musical students from The University of Akron, and
- other University-related programs.
