It’s nice to get back together again and be able to put on a production. Especially since we had been limited in our fundraising in the past year. This event will help Theatre Guild get back to doing what we love,” acting Fundraising chair Halle Newman, said. 

Newman, a graphic design major and illustration minor at UA, has been with the University of Akron Theatre Guild for 4 years.  

Due the national shut down and COVID-19 in 2020, the organization had to adapt and overcome the unforeseen consequences of both events.  

Last year we had been planning on doing a small scripted talent show that would act as a larger fundraiser for the Guild,” Newman said.. When COVID-19 hit the production was canceled, and we weren’t able to meet in person or put on any big productions. We didn’t let that stop us though, we met on teams every other week and even planned some online events like a movie night and a poetry slam night,” she stated.
