How the Circus Stole Christmas

Dec 01 -10 | Cleveland's home-grown circus company, the Crooked River Circus, brings you a night of circus and acrobatic fun, delight, foolishness, and games in this piece that is a nod to some of the most cherished characters and stories as they unite to destroy Christmas while flying high on trapeze, spinning and performing death-defying drops on aerial silks and corde lisse.

The Dark Room

Dec 13 | The Dark Room is an "open mic" for playwrights where writers take center stage and their work has a chance to grow. Held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, The Dark Room is open to all writers and performers, as well as audience members interested in cold readings of new scripts. 

CAN Academy

Cleveland Act Now (CAN) Academy Junior and Senior classes are now open! Taught by CPT Teaching Artists, Stitching the Story of Us is an in-person, after-school theatre program where youth will build original stories centered around family traditions and history—stitching together snapshots of life that create the fabric of our relationships with loved ones.

Choose What You Pay

CPT has implemented a Choose What You Pay ticketing policy for over 15 years, believing that art should have no barriers, including financial ones. In previous seasons, these tickets could only be purchased at the Box Office on the night of the show. This season, EVERY TICKET is Choose What You Pay and will be offered online, over the phone, at the Box Office, and can be purchased at any time.
