'Round the Roost
Now Playing!


Spamalot - playing now through June 26
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the outrageously hilarious musical comedy Spamalot re-tells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people.

It Takes an Army - literally  

Special thanks to all of the volunteers that jumped in to help with final prep for the opening of Spamalot!
From start to finish - this show has around 124 volunteers
engaged in some way. AMAZING!

And thank you to our show sponsors:
The Rail and The City Square Steakhouse 
Volunteers in the News
Emerging Artist Series alums Kate Klika and JR Heckman were named Best Actress/Best Actor at the Dazzle Awards in May. Dazzle was the regional round for The National High School Musical Theater Awards competition. They will compete ON BROADWAY June 27 for the national titles representing their high school programs. Bravo!
Another Emerging Artist Series alum, Marcus Martin, received the first Kyle Jean-Baptiste '15 Music Theatre Scholarship at Baldwin Wallace University. Read more in this Akron Beacon Journal article.
Theater Upgrades

The new Sound System is installed and in use with Spamalot! Thanks again to all who contributed to the fundraiser to make this happen.

The NOG rehearsal/ classroom floor got some much needed attention at the end of May. Amazing what some sanding and 2 coats of special floor paint can do!
