Two actors play 22 characters in this 70 minute show about two teenage girls who survive the torpedoing of a ship transporting British children to Canada during World War II. The tale is true and you can hear the actors talk about the back story of the actual harrowing event at a Talk Back after the show. There is one performance left of “Lifeboat” today, April 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Daum Theatre in Kolbe Hall on the UA campus. Tickets are $12 for general admission; $10 for seniors and UA faculty, staff, and alumni; and $6 for students. Give yourself time to get lost in Kolbe Hall because there are no signs to Daum Theatre. The theatre is a jewel! Don't miss it!

Hey, Akron film fans! "Almost There," the film that the Akron Area Arts Alliance is helping to promote as part of the Cleveland International Film Festival coming up in March, will be shown at Tower City in downtown Cleveland and not in Akron as earlier announced. Show dates are March 20-21. Here is the trailer that you can view and then head to the film festival site to buy your tickets at www.clevelandfilm.org. Tickets will be available to CIFF Members on February 27 at 11am and to the general public on March 6 at 11 am. If you'd rather stay close to home, here is the film schedule for the CIFF films that will be shown in Akron: http://www.clevelandfilm.org/festival/events/knight-and-day-in-akron.
