Cleveland Public Theatre announces STEP (Student Theatre Enrichment Program) 2021 Summer SESSION
Who: Youth Ages 14-19 (Cuyahoga County Residents)
What: As part of this eight-week summer program, 12-16 youth, ages 14-19, work together to create, produce, perform, and tour their own play. This program is the longest-running arts-based,
workplace development program in Cleveland and is an international model for engaging youth.
Since its beginning in 1994, STEP has received multiple awards and recognitions, including those
