The inaugural Twinsburg Paranormal Conference will explore ghosts, UFOs, as well as cryptzoology and other "beyond normal" topics that defy current scientific explanation. Most of the speakers are from Ohio and are veteran public speakers with varied backgrounds. The purpose of this conference is to bring the city of Twinsburg a public forum for those who believe, those who are curious, and those who are skeptical to ask questions and to learn from those that research and investigate these fields.

RENT - 20th Annuversary Tour

In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened on Broadway… and forever changed the landscape of American theatre. Two decades later, Jonathan Larson's RENT continues to speak loudly and defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award®-winning masterpiece returns to the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production. A re-imagining of Puccini's La Bohème, RENT follows an unforgettable year in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters—love.
