OPERATION FINALE: The Capture & Trial of Adolf Eichman
February 19 - June 12, 2016
The Nazi responsible for the transport of millions of innocent people to death camps might well have lived out his days in Argentina as "Ricardo Klement" if fate, a Holocaust survivor and Israel's foreign intelligence service hadn't intervened. A multimedia exhibition produced by the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in collaboration with The Mossad – Israeli Secret Intelligence Service and Beit Hatfutsot – The Museum of the Jewish People, Tel Aviv, featuring recently declassified artifacts never before seen outside of Israel reveals the secret history behind the capture, extradition and trial of one of the world's most notorious escaped war criminals.

Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt
Sun, 03/13/2016 to Sun, 06/12/2016

Pharaoh: King of Ancient Egypt brings 3,000 years of ancient history to life through some of the finest objects from the vast Egyptian holdings of the British Museum, from monumental sculpture to exquisite jewelry, supplemented by key works from the Cleveland collection. While many objects here were created to project a regal image of pharaoh, the story that emerges through this exhibition is also one of a country divided by civil war, conquered by foreign powers, or ruled by competing kings. These ancient rulers themselves were not always male, or even Egyptian, but they shared in the immense challenges of ruling one of the greatest civilizations the world has ever seen.

Geauga Park District and Geauga Veterans' Services Commission are pleased to announce that a national touring exhibition called The Wall That Heals will visit Geauga County Fairgrounds September 8 through 11.

The Wall That Heals was created by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) to travel to communities across the United States. The exhibit features a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C., approximately 250 feet in length, chevron-shaped and complete with the 58,249 names of those killed or missing in action from the conflict. Accompanying the wall is also a mobile Education Center telling the story of the Vietnam War era and the Memorial.

This being the first time in its 20-season existence that The Wall That Heals will have visited Geauga County, organizers expect it to draw thousands of people over its four-day stay at 14373 North Cheshire Street in Burton.

Visitors will be welcome at The Wall That Heals free of charge 24-7 during the exhibition. Additionally, groups are invited to schedule visit to The Wall That Heals to gain a heightened awareness of the impact and legacy of the war, as well as leadership, citizenship and character.

All the Way
Written by Robert Schenkkan
Sept 17-Oct 9, 2016 • Allen Theatre

The clock is ticking. The November election looms. "Accidental President" Lyndon B. Johnson's window is closing to pass the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and win the American people over to the side of momentous social change. But at what cost?

A mirror of our times, All the Way reflects the power of one person and one vote to transform our country.

Festa Gervasi! 5th Annual Grape Harvest Festival
Sunday September 25th 12-5pm

Join us for a fun filled day! Gervasi will be awash in fall colors & Italian flavors for our 4th Annual Grape Harvest Festival! A portion of the proceeds from festival activities and some specialty vendors will be donated to United Way's 2016 annual campaign. Last year, the Swaldo family, vineyard owners and longtime United Way donors added to the festival donation for a total gift of $14,000.

Italian fare will be served in the Villa Grande with a pre-sold Italian Plate. Italian Plates must be reserved online prior to the event. The Piazza, The Bistro and The Crush House will be open full service and other food options will be available, including a walk-up bar available inside The Pavilion some grill options.

A variety of family friendly events are planned as well including: grape stomping at The Crush House, caricatures, yarn bombing (interactive art project), face painting, "grape harvest" relay race for kids, and more! Bocce players are encouraged to join one of the tournaments during the day. Bocce Ball teams are made up of two people and a cash donation will be charged for entry. Participants can sign up the day of the festival, before the tournaments begin. Sign up is first come first serve, with a total of eight teams per tournament. Live music will be performed throughout the day with different bands located at The Villa Grande, The Piazza and a live DJ in the Pavilion with games and dancing. Many activities require cash only for participation; Gervasi does not have an ATM on property. Visit gervasivineyard.com/events for more details regarding the event.

United Way of Greater Stark County believes in creating long-lasting change in three important impact areas of focus: Education, Income & Health. The agency collaborates, convenes, and partners to support programs and initiatives that break the cycle of poverty and promote a healthy community where kids are successful from kindergarten through graduation to a career, and families have the tools, skills, and support they need to become financially independent.

Regardless, HCTM's mysterious personas, cunning song-craft, and unrelenting live show will bend your brain, and melt your face. Get ready, for Here Come The Mummies.

Sex with Strangers
Written by Laura Eason
Oct 22-Nov 13, 2016 • Outcalt Theatre

Olivia is an obscure novelist on the cusp of 40; Ethan is a famous blogger - and 28. When these two strangers collide at a remote B&B, a steamy romance erupts. Passion, intellect and secret agendas clash in Sex with Strangers. This smart, tantalizing take on modern love flirts with the ever-blurring line between public and private in our digital age.

Single show tickets go on sale in August. Call 216-241-6000 or visit clevelandplayhouse.com for more information.

The Allen, Helen and Outcalt theatres are located at Playhouse Square

Sex with Strangers
Written by Laura Eason
Oct 22-Nov 13, 2016 • Outcalt Theatre

Olivia is an obscure novelist on the cusp of 40; Ethan is a famous blogger - and 28. When these two strangers collide at a remote B&B, a steamy romance erupts. Passion, intellect and secret agendas clash in Sex with Strangers. This smart, tantalizing take on modern love flirts with the ever-blurring line between public and private in our digital age.

How I Learned to Drive
Written by Paula Vogel
March 4-26, 2017 • Allen Theatre

Buckle up. It's going to be a bumpy ride. Li'l Bit takes us on a no holds barred trip back in time to her adolescence in 1960s Maryland and her complicated relationship with an older man. A deeply compassionate look at how we are shaped by the people who hurt us, How I Learned to Drive masterfully veers in and out of personal memory and deftly traverses comedy, drama and farce. CPH Artistic Director Laura Kepley steers Paula Vogel's Pulitzer Prize-winning contemporary masterpiece.

Between Riverside and Crazy
Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis
April 1-23, 2017 • Outcalt Theatre

Ex-cop Walter "Pops" Washington is NOT one to let things go. NOT the memory of his recently deceased wife. NOT the racially-charged lawsuit he filed years ago against the NYPD. And most definitely NOT the impressive rent-controlled apartment he shares with his parolee son and ragtag surrogate family. But, eviction notices and ultimatums are piling up, and Pops is caught between losing his honor and losing his home. Bringing together the poetic and the profane, this 2015 Pulitzer Prize winner is an exuberant and darkly comic tale of truth, family, and pride.
