Youth Opportunities

Education is a core aspect of Cleveland Public Theatre’s mission. We believe art can change lives and that everyone is an artist. Throughout our history, we have offered unique education programs that celebrate the artist within all of us.


CMHA CAN takes place in partnership with Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA). CAN Academy is a free theatre training program on-site at Cleveland Public Theatre.


Applications coming soon!

CPT’s Student Theatre Enrichment Program (STEP) is a rigorous arts-based program that provides hands-on job training, engages youth from Cleveland families in a powerful learning experience that develops job skills, academic achievement, and interpersonal skills.
