Cleveland Act Now is an intensive performing arts program onsite at CPT for young artists from Cleveland and surrounding neighborhoods. Now in its pilot phase, thanks to the Cleveland Foundation’s new mastery-based arts initiative, Cleveland Act Now is a challenging (and fun!) theatre training program. Young artists learn acting fundamentals, storytelling techniques, and play creation. Under the dedicated guidance of CPT Teaching Artists, young artists work on scripted plays and develop their own theatrical works while receiving arts instruction. CPT also offers free youth programs at Harvard Community Services Center.
