Performing Arts Center announces new season

| June 14, 2021
The Performing Arts Center at Kent State University at Tuscarawas announced its 2021-22 season, highlighted by Grammy winners Amy Grant, Ricky Skaggs and Richard Marx; musical icon Dennis DeYoung; and country star Easton Corbin.
Broadway shows including “Waitress” and “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” will welcome audiences back to live theater, and late-night legend Jay Leno will appear to help celebrate the Performing Arts Center’s 10th anniversary (a year delayed). The full season comprised of 27 performances also will feature additional concerts, family shows and comedians.
“After 15 long months without a show, the Performing Arts Center is ready to get back to business,” said Dr. Brad Bielski, dean and chief administrative officer of Kent State Tuscarawas. “Because of the way this community came together, the Performing Arts Center is poised to emerge strong post pandemic. I thank everyone for their dedication and commitment to our beloved venue.”
In November 2020 the Performing Arts Center celebrated its 10th anniversary. “Plans were in place for a big party,” said David Mitchell, general manager for the Performing Arts Center. “We’re not one to let a good milestone go to waste, so we’re moving ahead with our celebration and are thrilled that the legendary Jay Leno will join us for an incredibly special night to celebrate our anniversary, even if it’s a year delayed. This will be one of those pinch-me moments, knowing we’ll have an entertainer the caliber of Jay Leno coming to New Philadelphia.”
In addition to the stand-up comedy of Leno, an optional post-show reception will occur on stage to include live music, bar service and hors d’oeuvres.
