Meet Graduate Assistant Julian Curet!

Julian Curet received a B.A. in English and anthropology in the spring of 2018. During his internship with Crafty Mart, Julian was immersed in the arts and culture community of Akron. This experience caused him to refocus his career on the importance of supporting artists and creating accessible and compelling programming for the local population. Julian’s ultimate goal is to combine his first-hand experience as a musician and his M.A. in arts administration by working in non-profit organizations that seek to enhance the area through arts and culture.

Welcome to UA's Shakespearean Circus!

The UA Theatre Program opens its Spring MainStage Production: Richard IIII by William Shakespeare tomorrow night, Thursday, March 5 and runs through Saturday, March 14. Tomorrow's show will begin at 7:30 PM in Sandefur Theater in Guzzetta Hall.

Director Michael Gatto says: “In Richard III, we are flipping the age-old adage, and bringing to life one of Shakespeare’s great villains who audiences hate to love. We are taking the bard’s play, wrought with relevant themes of abusive power, murder, hubris, envy, grief, and betrayal, and setting it within a once great, long forgotten circus.”

I am in desperate need of a dance teacher sub for Tuesday July 10th. It is for a full night of five 45 minute long classes. Most of the students are totally new students to the studio, with about one or two from each class returning students, and they basically are young, beginner levels. 4:30-5:15 Beginner Ballet (age 5), 5:15-6:00 Teen Beginner Hip Hop, 6:00-6:45 Beginner Jazz/Hip Hop (ages 4-6), 6:45-7:30 Beginner Tap (Age4), and 7:30-8:15, Broadway Jazz for Teens (YAY!). This is at A Time To Dance in North Canton behind Ro's Custard on South Main Street, and it can turn into a permanent subbing position and even possibly some part time positions in the Fall. Contact me here, or my cell is 330-322-5105, or [email protected]. Thanks, I could really use some help with subbing this summer for me! Contact me for the rate.
