Cleveland Public Theatre announces 2021 Free Summer Season Outdoors. Live. In-Person.
July 1 – august 7, 2021
Cleveland Public Theatre (CPT)’s Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan is proud to announce in-person, outdoor performances as part of the 2021 Free Summer Season. CPT is thrilled to offer live, onsite performances for the first time since March 2020, including Panther Women: An Army for the Liberation and performances by CPT resident ensembles Teatro Público de Cleveland and Masrah Cleveland Al-Arabi مسرح كليفلاند العربي . CPT will once again be home to live and in-person programming that is daring, relevant, and socially conscious.
CPT’s mission is to raise consciousness and nurture compassion through groundbreaking performances and life-changing education programs. CPT’s programming agenda is to produce work outside the mainstream, offering a much broader range of work available to the Cleveland public and expanding the impact and originality of theatre across the country. CPT strives to make work that is excellent, extraordinary, locally impactful, and nationally competitive.
Our new play development programs are based on our years of experience, community input, and key principles of:
focusing on artists;
valuing diversity of approach, aesthetics, and perspective;
balancing impact with investment.
CPT is a nationally recognized hub for the development of new theatre that is known for work that is extraordinary, edgy, and relevant. We seek to be a model for nurturing local talent in similar sized markets, the most regarded cultivator of new theatre for Cleveland audiences, a laboratory for promising research and investigation, and a launcher of nationally significant new plays.
The most extensive of CPT’s development programs, Catapult is focused on projects that are outside the mainstream and align with CPT’s diversity of aesthetic. Catapult is intended to move projects from early to mid-development phase, to being “production-ready.” Each process is customized to the work and the playwright’s need. Projects may receive a series of readings, significant rehearsal time, and workshop productions.
Playwright/Creators of the selected Catapult projects will receive the Nord Family Foundation Fellowship and, while developing their work, will play an active role in the life of the theatre.
