'Jumping Off the Page' at Summit StageFest

  • Highland Square 807 West Market Street Akron, OH, 44303 United States (map)

Join Wandering Aesthetics at the first annual Summit StageFest for Jumping Off The Page.


A few props, some makeshift costumes and a story is all you'll need throughout this interactive theatrical affair. From Little Red to Big Bad and all those characters in between, step out of reality and into the world of play and make believe.

Join Wandering Aesthetics for a day of improvisational play for ALL AGES and ALL SKILL LEVELS! Guided by Storytellers Kyle Jozsa and Nici Romo of Wandering Aesthetics, participants will – adding their own personal twist – act out well-known stories from throughout the ages as audiences cheer them on! From myths to fairy tales, this day is sure to be an adventure like none other.
