A new CPH program where caregivers and their children each experience theatre in unique ways.

Ages 5-9
Children ages 5-9 will take part in a special "who-dunit" drama, create their own "detective cap" and participate in a creative writing activity that reflects home and holiday.

Ages 10-12
Children ages 10-12 will take part in a living "Clue" game, have fun solving a mystery through math and create a poem based on the themes of home and holiday.

Grown-ups
After dropping the children at the Play Dates area, the grown-ups will see the performance of The Game's Afoot (Or Holmes for the Holidays).

Acclaimed actor of the 1930s, William Gillette, invites his Sherlock Holmes co-stars to his eccentric Connecticut mansion for a Christmas Eve celebration. When one of the guests is murdered, Gillette employs the persona of the master detective he's made famous on the stage. A murder mystery comedy from the author of Lend Me A Tenor.

To book your "Play Date" for you and your child, please call (216) 241-6000.
