About

This Is Our Story

Building on the success of the Akron Civic Theatre’s three prior All-City Musical productions — “Hairspray” in 2012, “Ragtime” in 2013 and “Bye Bye Birdie” in 2014 — we’re preparing for the 4th annual fully staged, large-scale musical presented by Summit County’s most talented teens.

This could be our most awesome show yet!

In June 2015, “Shrek The Musical” will be presented by more than 100 high school-aged students from Summit County’s public and private schools and home-schooled teens. Under the guidance of theater professionals, students will fill all the performance roles, serve as musicians in the orchestra and work on the stage crew.

The All-City Musical presents a unique experience for students, offering them the opportunity to work collaboratively on a musical production outside the school setting and on a much larger scale than is typical for local schools.

For almost all involved, the audiences will be the largest for which they have ever performed. Students will be introduced to the professional theater model; significantly expand their performing arts experience; and acquire valuable skills such as creative problem-solving, time management, collaborative creativity, interpersonal communications and a strong work ethic. 

The creative process will provide a context for future experiences and allow performers to share what they have learned with peers at their own schools.

It’s also a cool community event — it's great entertainment for families and for anyone who enjoys musical theater and it's a showcase for the most talented teens among us.

Be a Believer and Let Your Freak Flag Fly!

We need your help to get this All-City Musical production on the Civic stage. Your contribution will help us cover costs to build the set, create the costumes, choreograph the show and light this baby up for the stage!

Risks and challenges

The 2015 All-City Musical will be the Civic's fourth such production. As audiences have continued to respond positively to our show, the level of production has needed to rise to meet their expectations.

With pledges from supporters like you, we hope to be able to raise bar and leave the audience wowed!

The biggest challenge will be that some of the pledge items are on a first-come, first-served basis.
