Northeast Ohio singer/songwriter Ryan Humbert will perform the eighth annual Ryan Humbert Holiday Extravaganza: Christmas in The Round, at Akron Civic Theatre for two intimate cabaret performances.

The shows take place Dec. 15 and 16 and will raise funds for Akron General's Muffins for Mammograms program. Now in its 23rd year, the Akron General Muffins for Mammograms program provides free mammograms year-round for uninsured or under-insured women throughout Northeast Ohio.

This performance will feature Humbert and longtime harmony vocalist Emily Bates backed by an all-star band of Northeastern Ohio musicians, including Tim Longfellow on piano, Justin Tibbs on saxophone, Bryan Thomas on upright bass, Scott Alan on guitar and Jim Richley on drums.

This year, the holiday extravaganza will exclusively feature holiday songs. The show will also be performed in-the-round, with attendees sitting on all four sides of the performance area. This unique setup is a first for Humbert.

Tickets are available now at the Akron Civic box office at 330-253-2488 and online at or at all Ticketmaster locations.
