These two buddies from Orrville Elementary paused for only this short moment between their rapid-fire exchanges after seeing Winnie-the-Pooh.
“That was amazing!”
“It was the best play ever!”
“It was my first play.”
“That makes it your best play.”

Few know it, but Karl Hay was quietly key in our efforts to resuscitate Magical Theatre Company in the mid-90's. We have been forever grateful to him for his caring and dedication as a board member who did all the right things in the right way. We are extremely sad to see him go. Thank you, Karl. https://www.billowfuneralhomes.com/obituary/Karl-Hay

Our kindergarten students had fun watching the production of Winnie-the-Pooh at the Magical Theatre Company. It's obvious they also had a great time riding the bus too!
We’re so lucky to have a whole lotta live theatre & amazing talent right here in Summit County! Make sure to check out the productions at Weathervane Playhouse, None Too Fragile Theatre, Magical Theatre Company & Akron Civic Theatre (to name a few) now through the end of summer.

Do any Theater actors here have interest in film acting?
Hi. I'm Ken and I'm a filmmaker. I'm the director of the Barberton Film Society and developing a free to all in Barberton Film School that will be offered through the film society. I have a lot of stuff that I'm currently doing to develop these programs but I need more actors and talent involved. I have a lot of ideas so I'm not going to bother listing them now but.. Friday Morning at 9AM till about 1PM I'll be getting b-roll and various shots of the library and the lake. I need a few models for shots down at the library to pose as patrons because I can't bother the people at the library or film them. But I have permission to be at the library with the equipment getting the shots. https://www.facebook.com/groups/159882615997851
Our online auction is coming soon!
Can't wait!
Congrats to Ari and Brock, and thank you, Magical Theatre Company, for another awesome KidScripts program!
A fun opportunity for kids ages 8-14 at Magical Theatre Company
Thank you to everyone who attended Change for Change on Friday! We collected over $500 in donations, which will help the programming at the Magical Theatre Company. Thank you to the Barberton Liedertafel for hosting the event and for donating food. #BarbertonProud
This month, Change for Change will be held at the Barberton Liedertafel on February 25th from 4:30 PM- 7:00 PM with proceeds benefiting the Magical Theatre Company. Change for Change is an event sponsored by The City of Barberton and Mayor William B. Judge. Each month this fundraiser is held on behalf of a local non-profit and is designed to raise awareness of the group as well as collect donations for their cause. Every month a different establishment is chosen to host Change for Change. It is all about bringing people together, having fun, supporting small businesses, and raising money for the non-profit charity of the month. #BarbertonProud
