To eliminate financial and geographic barriers of attending our theatres, CPH brings theatre education programs directly to schools.
CPH is proud to commission and produce professional touring theatre with relevant themes for young audiences like anti-bullying, racial tolerance, socio-economic inequality and conflict resolution.
Following each performance, our arts-integrated workshops provide excellent starting points for engaging classroom discussions while fulfilling the Common Core State Standards.
Parent workshops are available in the evening on the day of school performance. Parent workshops are designed to give parents the tools to talk about anti-bullying, racial tolerance and socio-economic inequality with their children in a positive and productive way. These workshops also meet requirements for Title One funding designated to support parent education.
The dynamic Ms. VieVie loves her students, but it’s hard to inspire them sometimes when the world outside her classroom seems to be too much for them to handle. When she remembers it takes a whole community to raise its children, Ms. VieVie opens her classroom to some special guests. Together they empower her students to navigate the complicated world in which they live through songs, dance, poetry and stories.
Join Cleveland Play House’s professional actors as they create an immersive and interactive theatre experience created by internationally renowned playwright, Christopher Parks. Your students will be co-creators and collaborators who sing, dance and act alongside our actors and bring Ms. VieVie’s classroom to life.
