About Global Teen Performance Project
Making Our Way features original stories and performances created by GLOBAL TEEN PERFORMANCE PROJECT, students from Thomas Jefferson INTERNATIONAL NEWCOMERS ACADEMY, ages 14-19. This performance is the culmination of a rigorous and collaborative after-school rehearsal process between students and CPT teaching artists, with the support and involvement of the school’s teachers and staff. Together they have created an original work of theatre based on the students’ stories and cultures, and their experiences as newcomers in the U.S. This program, a collaboration between Cleveland Public Theatre and Global Cleveland, seeks to enhance cross-cultural understanding among a diverse group of international teens and their new Cleveland community. Special thanks to the entire student body who participated in a series of workshops, contributing their talents in the creation of this work.
Made possible through the generous support from: Global Cleveland, the City of Cleveland, Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD), Ohio Arts Council.
Special thanks to Councilpersons: Kerry McCormack, Jasmin Santana, Matt Zone.
Special thanks to Community Partners: City of Cleveland Department of Community Development, Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, Metro West Community Development Organization.
