The 40-year-old Barberton-based Magical Theatre Company describes itself as “Northeast Ohio’s only professional resident and touring theater for young audiences.”
This weekend it’s presenting a street festival called Tuscany of Tusc, named after its location on Tuscarawas Street in downtown Barberton and the Italian theme of the event. There’ll be Italian food for sale, including pizza, gelato and vegan offerings such as grilled portabello mushroom tacos and Tuscan chili from North Canton’s Ahimsa Grille. Beer, wine and soft drinks will be available for purchase too.
While you’re eating and drinking, the Tuscan Trio will be offering traditional Italian music and Michael Sonata will perform his popular Frank Sinatra tribute. And to make the evening even more festive, there’ll be stilt walkers, facepainting, local artists creating work live, and the Piazza del Mercato featuring local vendors of art, jewelry and food items, among other things.
The festival is free and open to all.
