DEADLINE EXTENDED: CPT Announces 2017/2018 Local Request for Season Proposals

We are extending the deadline for submission for the 17-18 season.

Typically over half of CPT’s season is locally created work! Let us know your ideas by February 20th!

Dear Northeast Ohio artists,

CPT is planning the 2017-2018 Season, and once again we are reaching out to you for great ideas.

CPT is focused on new work that is surprising, unexpected and somehow outside the realm of conventional theatre.

Please send your proposals electronically to CPT’s Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan at See complete instructions below.

CPT is looking for proposals from Northeast Ohio artists for complete projects. Proposals may be from directors or playwrights for world premieres, second or third US productions, radical re-envisionings of classic plays or other projects.

The show could be your own show or a script you would like to work on.

Based on the success of past co-productions and our New Play Development series, we are also interested in creating opportunities for artists and groups that would like to retain greater ownership of projects and who can share risk with CPT.
