CPT invests in innovation and diversity, and is the leading producer of new work and local playwrights in our community. Annually, we produce more original work than all the professional theatres in the area combined. The upcoming 17-18 mainstage season includes five World Premieres, one National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere and two Regional Premieres. CPT’s NEW New Play Development programs will launch emerging artists through numerous workshop and other production opportunities, as well as provide pathways for risk and innovation by more established theatre-makers.
CPT’s fully produced work is complemented by our NEW New Play Development series, with a special focus on promoting artists from the Northeast Ohio region.
