Week #2 (Jan. 22 – 24): People4Change

January 22, 2010 - January 24, 2010

7:30pm and 3:00pm, James Levin Theatre


The centerpiece of CPT's season, Big Box provides local artists with the opportunity to create and produce new work. Over seven weeks, Big Box includes nine world-premiere workshop performances of theatre, dance, opera and genre-defying performances. Cleveland Public Theatre is proud to support and foster the work of area artists in this unique program. Artists are given keys to The James Levin Theatre and the freedom to transform the space for the presentation of their work.


Week #2: January 22 – 24


Presented by The Them
Directed by Raymond Bobgan
A Work-in-Progress

Three Gen-Yers join forces to make a difference in the world after a random experience brings them together. Their efforts to “help the world,” range from the naive to the sublime when they open a phone book and start calling random people for donations to their various causes. In a world inundated with global information (and global suffering), self-help and spiritual panaceas, and contradictory common values, People4Change examines the frustration, isolation, and passion of young professionals in North America.

The Them is an ad hoc performance ensemble and this workshop production of People4Change will be their CPT debut

All proceeds from the Sunday, January 24th matinee performance of People4Change will benefit Community Shares, Cleveland’s only workplace giving federation with a focus on social justice. Community Shares generates essential operating funds for nonprofit organizations that are working for positive community change. Click here to visit Community Shares online.
