CPT announces the 25th Anniversary Season: Alive

Cleveland Public Theatre Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan is proud to announce the 2008-2009, 25th anniversary season:

Alive -- A celebration of premiere performance and original work

"Cleveland Public Theatre is the place for bold, new, adventurous and relevant works of performance," says Bobgan. "Our exciting line-up includes amazing new works from great American playwrights and home-grown premieres of national stature." The 08-09 season includes 4 World Premieres, 3 Ohio premieres, the 8th year of Big [BOX], the return of Little Box and CPT's acclaimed performance series DanceWorks. Bobgan adds, "Theatre is alive, full of energy, giving voice to contemporary artists and celebrating the moment while challenging the status quo."

CPT's philosophy - that the arts can literally change the world - is actualized through strategic programming and investing resources in new plays and emerging artists that deal directly with relevant issues of our times. The mission of CPT is to raise consciousness and nurture compassion through ground-breaking performances and life changing educational programs.
