CPT’s Student Theatre Enrichment Program (STEP) is a summer arts-based job training program that engages Cleveland teens from families defined as low-income in a powerful 8-week intensive that focuses on excellence in performance, play creation, physical theatre, writing, production, and set design/construction. Students ages 14-19, with little or no previous performance experience, are eligible for participation, and earn money while learning and practicing valuable job skills such as timeliness, communication, commitment, and teamwork. Under the guidance of CPT artistic mentors, teens develop an original play and then tour it to public parks throughout the city of Cleveland. Updated auditions for STEP 2020 are Sunday, April 5, 1 – 4pm and Sunday, April 12, 1 – 4pm. Click here for more information.
