PUTTING ON A SHOW
 
Goo Goo Dolls concert was latest promoted by YSU student group

YOUNGSTOWN
 
The crowd of 3,000-plus roared when the Goo Goo Dolls took the stage at Covelli Centre last month.
 
And the rockers didn’t disappoint, reeling off 90 minutes of music punctuated by hits like “Slide,” “Name,” “Iris,” “Black Balloon” and “Broadway Is Dark Tonight.”
 
It was a no-frills show, but full of familiar music and delivered with enthusiasm. The crowd ranged from teens to folks in their 50s, and the standing-room floor area was packed with Youngstown State University students.
 
Everyone walked away happy. In short, it was a solid choice for Penguin Productions.
 
Penguin is the student-run concert promotion group at YSU. And the April 12 concert represented months of work by the volunteers, lead by Joy Polkabla Byers, assistant director of programs for the campus recreation department.
 
Penguin Productions was started five years ago, with a goal of staging large-scale entertainment for the campus and greater community. In the process, it gives its two dozen or so students valuable experience in marketing and event planning.
 
The Goo Goo Dolls concert — which drew 3,200 people, including 1,200 YSU students who got $10 tickets — was one of its most successful efforts.
 
It was at Covelli and was co-staged by local promoter Eric Ryan Productions. That freed up the students from the labor-intensive job of setting up a stage and chairs in Beeghly Center, the campus gymnasium, as they’ve had to do in the past.

**I thought this was an interesting slice into all the work that goes on to plan and promote a major event like this. And it's even cooler that the students had the chance to do it all. Great experience for them.**
