Actors' Summit New Home 

When: Thu., Oct. 14 2010

It's a brand-new era for Actors' Summit, the professional theater ensemble that has performed in downtown Hudson since 2001. But eviction from its most recent home there proved to be a bittersweet blessing in disguise: The Summit has a new home at Greystone Hall (103 South High St.), a former Freemasons' hall in downtown Akron. The troupe will take over the sixth and seventh floors in the elegant 1917 building. Not only is it more centrally located, but the space offers room for luxuries it never had before — including actual dressing rooms, and costume and scene shops. Actors' Summit breaks in its new digs with the sort of lighthearted musical/historical play the company does so well: A Murder, a Mystery, and a Marriage. A homespun musical based on a short story by Mark Twain, it debuted in 2006, complete with bluegrass-style music written by Oberlin Conservatory grad James Sugg. It opens at 8 tonight and runs through November 7. Tickets are $17 to $30; call 330-374-7568 or go to actorssummit.org. — Anastasia Pantsios
