FRIDAY AKRON NUTCRACKER PERFORMANCE CANCELLATION: After much consideration between campus officials and performance groups, the Friday performance of the Akron Nutcracker has been cancelled due to incoming weather events. Ticket buyers have the option to attend a special 2p.m. Thursday (12/22) afternoon dress rehearsal/performance event and keep their original seats, attend the Thursday evening 7:30 p.m. performance with reassigned seating, request for their ticket refund to be made into a donation, or request a refund. Friday ticket buyers have been sent an email about the change. While we are saddened by this abbreviated performance schedule, our aim is to keep our guests, performers, and volunteers safe. To reach the ticket office please call 330-253-2488, 10 am. - 4pm for assistance.

The great folks at E.J. Thomas Hall at the University of Akron have a tradition that we love: Asking some artists to sign their names on the backstage wall.

Last week it was The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass (RMPBB), who gave a fabulous holiday concert for a full house and then signed the wall right next to Trombone Shorty.

Full-circle: RMPBB started 35 years ago in the French Quarters in New Orleans and shared a corner with a fantastic trumpet player named James and his younger brother Trombone Shorty. RMPBB played, and they rested. They played, and RMPBB rested — a beautiful cooperative effort that kept the crowds engaged for hours.
Akron Nutcracker ticket giveaway: We are looking for three fans who can send us their favorite Nutcracker character for a chance to win tickets to the locally inspired Akron Nutcracker Dec. 22 and 23. Read about the show here: bit.ly/3PzbJEg 🎄

Winners will be announced later this week. Good luck!

Along with welcoming eleven new board members who will begin their term on January 1, 2023, we are equally thrilled to announce updates to our Executive Committee.

Please give a big warm welcome to our newly appointed:
President - David Mitchell, Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas
Vice President - Kevin Cornell, Mister C
Treasurer - Amber Hansen, Productions
Secretary - Margo Ohlson, E.J. Thomas Hall at the University of Akron

2023 is going to be a good year, folks!

We've been on the road! We love taking our Akron Concert Series performers beyond the concert stage and into the community.

Today, several members of The Rodney Marsalis Philadelphia Big Brass visited Miller South School for the Visual and Performing Arts and Jackson Local Schools - Massillon, OH to perform and share professional insights and inspirations with students.

Many of those students and their teachers are coming to E.J. Thomas Hall at the University of Akron to hear the full ensemble. (We provide free tickets for all students and bus funding for schools!)

Will you be there? Tickets at tuesdaymusical.org and at the door.

Time to get some new seats at EJ Thomas Hall.

Only children could fit comfortably in those seats - they are narrower than airline seats!

Great leg room, which is nice. But even when I was my skinniest when I first saw a show here over 20 years ago, these seats were horribly uncomfortable. You are crammed into them and you cannot sit shoulder to shoulder. Was lucky last night that "Tootsie" was not sold out so we could space out with seats in between, but really, these seats are made for children.

And let's be serious, we Americans are getting larger. Time for a renovation, EJ Thomas Hall - try larger seats and individual arm rests instead of shared arm rests. I could not imagine being crammed in like sardines at a sold out show.
Want some cool & fun new decorations for the holidays? Well, come check out the 42nd Annual Christmas Arts & Craft Show at E.J. Thomas Hall at the University of Akron. There will be sooo many different items for you to add to your collection! Details at: https://bit.ly/3ErbIgn
