Hear about upcoming seasons

Check out the upcoming seasons for the Akron Symphony, Broadway in Akron and Tuesday Musical at a party from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at E.J. Thomas Hall, where all three organizations present programs. There will be special offers on season packages, free refreshments and a cash bar, and a look behind the scenes. The presenters are also hoping to counteract the perception that E.J. Thomas is closed after budget cuts at the University of Akron curtailed programming. Parking will be free in the surface lot across from E.J. and in the adjoining deck. No reservations are needed. For details, call Tuesday Musical at 330-761-3460 or the Akron Symphony at 330-535-8131.
