It is through the generosity of Cleveland Public Theatre supporters that we are able to carry out our mission: to raise consciousness and nurture compassion through groundbreaking performances and life-changing education programs. Thank you to all who made us what we are today, and to those who will help us continue to grow into the future.
Why do you support CPT?
“CPT provides a unique experience that evokes thought, passion, and emotion. Pushing the envelope on social issues that are prevalent in our society, CPT addresses the things people are not talking about and makes change in our community and beyond.”
– Rajdeep Chatterjee, CPT Board Member
“CPT is a special place, truly dedicated to developing and producing work by, with, in, and for multiple communities, from the local homeless transitional housing program to their Latinx theatre company Teatro Público, to partnerships with local government, high schools, and more.”
– Leila Buck, nationally-acclaimed theatre writer & performer
“CPT is a breath of fresh air! I love what CPT produces – high level theatre and performance with local artists. CPT’s positive impact in our Cleveland community is the reason why I support CPT.”
– Italo Gonzalez, CPT Board Member
“I loved the feeling I experienced when I first went to this funky, user friendly, run down looking place before I started volunteering. I saw my first poetry slam there and loved it and came back for more. Then I wanted to be a part of this ‘little engine that could.’ At that time, that is how I felt about the theatre. CPT has proved itself and has become a bigger little engine that still can and does exceptional work for and in our community. It gives me a sense of hope. I am proud to have been a part of this wonderful and creative growth.”
– Shellie Sedlak, CPT Board Member
“I support CPT because, from the caliber of performances to their work in the community, it is evident that CPT truly loves Cleveland and expresses that love through their art and service.”
– Terri Ford, Former CPT Board Member
“While many organizations strive to do such things, Cleveland Public Theatre is absolutely fearless in its endeavors and savors the journey over the destination. I perform with CPT because I want to challenge myself in the same fearless way; asking the hard questions, discovering my artistic edge, inspiring those that have been forgotten or set aside, and celebrating achievement with the best arts community in the nation!”
– Sheffia Randall Dooley, CPT Artist
“CPT represents everything good and right about social justice, providing opportunities for expression without boundaries.”
– Arne Goldman, Marous Brothers Construction (CPT’s design-build firm)
“I support Cleveland Public Theatre because they provide a consistent space to expect the unexpected – not just at Pandemonium, but through their programming all year long. They encourage new voices and visions in theatre, and they encourage audiences to open their minds to more possibilities of what theatre is, and what it can be.”
– Dee Perry, CPT Board Member
