Long recognized among the community’s cultural landmarks, the Akron Civic Theatre has a rich and spectacular history. It has provided the community with a venue for quality entertainment and live performances for over seventy years. During that time, hundreds of thousands of people have been thrilled by various theatrical presentations, both on stage and on screen. The theater was built in 1929 by Marcus Loew and designed by famed theater architect, John Eberson. The interior structure was fashioned after a Moorish castle featuring Mediterranean decor, including medieval carvings, authentic European antiques and Italian alabaster sculptures. Among facilities of its size, the Civic is one of only five remaining atmospheric theaters in the country where patrons experience a twinkling star-lit sky and intermittent clouds moving across the horizon, all while sitting inside the auditorium.

Mission: To provide quality entertainment.

CALL OUT FOR ARTISTS! As the saying goes, the show must go on and we want to do just that! We’re rolling out a new platform for Akron Civic Theatre programming, livevirtually. Our area is rich in talent, and The Civic has proudly hosted performances by hundreds of local entertainers. We know many of you are hosting virtual events (concerts, poetry readings, monologues, dance, etc) in order to stay engaged with your fans during this time when public gatherings are banned. Email us at [email protected] and tell us what you are doing and when you’ll be doing it, along with a link to the event on your social media platform. We’ll consider your event for inclusion on our platform based on schedule and programming balance – livevirtually will feature national artists and community-based content as well. You create the event, you put up the tip jar, you keep the proceeds. The Civic uses our social media platform to promote it. Simple as that. We can’t wait to see what you all come up with. The possibilities are endless.

Anyone that has been a fan of Blues/Roots/Zydeco music in the Cleveland area, certainly has been to Wilbert's Food & Music Wilbert's Food and Music. Mike Miller, the proprietor, has been bringing International acts to the Cleveland area for over 30 years. From his first venue at Barney Googles in the Holiday Inn Richfield to the present downtown location, Mike has booked the top Blues/Zydeco/Singer-Songwriters and over 100 Grammy Award winners. Buckwheat Zydeco, Roy Buchanon, Buddy Guy, Mick Taylor Marcia Ball, Kieth Urban, Web Wilder, Nils Lofgren is just touching the surface of the great artists that have graced Mike's many venues.

Not only are the loyal Wilbert's employees out of work because of C-19 virus, but the kitchen in Wilbert's had a devastating fire in September and the club has been shuttered since then. The COH Duo hopes to raise a couple of bucks for Mike's employees and maybe a stipend for the 3 COH members (Dillon, Toby, Pete) who rely totally on music for their income. Please join us Saturday April 11 from 7-8:30 for a "COH Live Basement Concert". This time around we are going to try to engage with the audience a lot more and do more live song requests. Any generous donations thru PayPal or Venmo are so greatly appreciated. Go to Cats On Holiday page to access the broadcast.
