YOUNGSTOWN

The Ward Beecher Planetarium at Youngstown State University will present “Rock the Dome” shows Friday and Saturday, featuring high-tech visuals and the music of several classic rock bands.

The shows are 40- to 50-minutes in length. Admission is free, but donations of $1 or $2 per person are encouraged. Large crowds are expected, and the planetarium will distribute tokens to folks waiting in line to insure everyone who wants a seat, gets a seat. After each show, the theater will be cleared before the next show.

The shows feature the planetarium’s new SkySkan Definiti Theater System and the new video system called Milk Drop, containing nearly 100 unique, trippy, full dome visualizations that dance to the music.
