CPT is Now Requesting Proposals for the 18/19 Season

Dear Northeast Ohio artists,

CPT is planning the 2018/2019 Season, and we are reaching out to you for great ideas.

CPT is focused on new work that is surprising, unexpected and somehow 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 ›

Joan Yellen Horvitz Director Fellowship Application

Deadline: Monday, December 18th, 2017

CPT’s Director Fellow Program is a year-long program for emerging directors of extraordinary potential living in Northeast Ohio. Supported by Joan Yellen Horvitz, CPT initiated this program to address Cleveland’s limited pool of directors with experience in directing new work and to meet the needs of up-and-coming directors.

The program includes a wide range of activities suited to the individual artist’s strengths and interest in areas of skill development. Past fellows have assistant directed full productions, created and directed original pieces for Station Hope and Pandemonium, and assisted in coordinating events and new play development series.

The Director Fellow Program is a direct mentorship with Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan. Fellows work directly with Raymond and the CPT staff. Read More ›
