Tom Hanks goes back to Great Lakes Theater Festival

August 31, 2009

Tom Hanks goes back to Great Lakes Theater Festival. On Monday, October 12, he will perform "Tom Hanks at the Hanna" at PlayhouseSquare's historic Hanna Theatre to help raise the last $600,000 in Great Lakes' $18.3 million campaign to pay for the Hanna's renovation.
Top tickets, priced at $250 and including dinner with Tom Hanks, go on sale today. Cheaper seats, at $75, will be available later.
You can read an article, which was published today, about the event in the press archive.

Tom Hanks has also agreed to be interviewed before an audience of students by NPR's Scott Simon for "Backstage With . . .", an education series sponsored by PlayhouseSquare and WVIZ Channel 25, while he'll be in town for the play.

Videos from the 3rd Annual Visual Effects Society Awards from 2005 have been added to the Awards section of the video archives.
As is his wont, Tom Hanks gave a hilarious 9-minute speech to pay tribute to Robert Zemeckis and to present him with the Life Achievement Award from the Visual Effects Society.
