Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT) is planning our 2020/2021 Season, and we are reaching out to you for great ideas.
CPT is focused on new work that is surprising, unexpected, and outside the realm of conventional theatre.
CPT is looking for proposals from Northeast Ohio artists for complete projects. Proposals may be for world premieres, second or third US productions, radical re-envisioning 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. Read More ›
