The Fairfield Arts and Convention Center Board welcome several acts and performances this weekend to the Sondheim Center, including a group from overseas.  Rustin Lippincott of the center’s visitors’ bureau says they will host the Axis of Awesome, a singing British comedy troupe, on Thursday, and the University of Iowa’s repertory dance company on Friday.  This will be the third time a performing group from the university has appeared in Fairfield.

The Axis of Awesome consists of a comedian, a classically trained musician, and an Iron Chef enthusiast, Lippincott says, and they are scheduled to perform original songs, pop parodies, and other back and forth banter.  The university’s repertory dance company will feature a concert of classical and contemporary ballet, modern, and jazz dance.

The Axis of Awesome performs Thursday at 7:30, and the dance company goes on stage Saturday evening at 7:30.  To see tickets information and video clips look here.
