Cleveland Play House announces series of virtual events for 105th season

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland Play House is returning to the stage in the fall for a series of virtual performances, programs and special events.

“Since the pandemic began, we have been wrestling with the safety and economic challenges posed by this crisis. We are committed to meeting this moment with creativity, resilience, and compassion for the wellness of our community. We will resume in-person programming when it is safe and possible to do so,” says the regional theatre’s artistic director Laura Kepley in a release.

The lineup, she says, will include a number of “unique, interactive stories, events, and experiences.”

? Theatre Thursday, held on the third Thursday of each month through April, is a live interactive virtual program that allows fans to connect with theatre-makers and learn about the work of Cleveland Play House.

? A series of “One Night Only!” special events kicks off October 10 with “CLUEbaret,” where the cast of CPH’s hit production of “Clue” reunites to perform their favorite Broadway musical numbers.

? The virtual season will continue into the spring with the New Ground Theatre Festival 2021, the company’s annual celebration of new works featuring five Cleveland-inspired plays.

“CPH has faced many challenges in its 105 years, always rising to the occasion with innovation and resilience. Our virtual 105th season is the latest example of our dedication to building a better community through theatre,” says managing director Kevin Moore.

Tickets for individual events range from $5-$50, while subscriptions start at $150. Patrons who already registered for the 2020-21 CPH Subscription Series will automatically have their account applied to the first six in-person productions that are able to be produced at the theatre’s venues at Playhouse Square.
