Party Bus to Playhouse Square: Come From Away

Buehler's River Styx

The true story of the small town that welcomed the world. Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY has won Best Musical all across North America! The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded airline passengers and the small town of Gander, Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships. Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!” On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

Ameer Williamson: A-Minus Positive Hip-Hop

Wadsworth Public Library

ORMACO continues its Wadsworth Public Library concert series with A-Minus (Ameer Williamson). Today’s concert/workshop focuses on how hip-hop music changes the negative mindset of today’s youth and how it sheds a more positive light on the culture versus what the media portrays. The presentation will include a PowerPoint History Lesson, music and will encourage youth participation. It will end with a Q & A session. Akron-based Ameer Williamson is a positive force in music in NE Ohio. His message of peace, unity and positivism resonate loudly. Williamson is a community figure and activist and serves as a role model for children. He reminds us of what we can accomplish if we think of the larger picture and community rather than just ourselves. This program is free, but reservations are recommended reserving online at www.ormaco.org or by calling[masked]
