FESTIVAL OF TREES
Nov. 27 – Dec. 24
CLEVELAND, OH (Nov.12, 2015) The lobbies of the Allen Theatre will be adorned to dazzling perfection again this year as Cleveland Play House brings back their beloved holiday tradition, Festival of Trees. This endearing holiday favorite features a grand display showcasing more than 20 trees exquisitely decorated by various local designers. With each tree offering a unique design or theme, guests and their families are sure to depart with a plethora of design inspiration for their own trees. Along with Presenting Sponsor Dominion and the generosity of Cleveland’s corporate and civic leaders, Cleveland Play House is pleased to welcome all members of the community to this FREE holiday offering which is OPEN to the general public. CPH is also grateful for the support of their Centennial Season Sponsor, KeyBank. Festival of Trees will raise support for CPH’s renowned artistic and educational programming, while making the season bright for the Northeast Ohio community.
“Dominion East Ohio is pleased to team with the Cleveland Play House as Presenting Sponsor for one of the area’s premier holiday events,” said Jeff Murphy, Vice President and General Manager, Dominion East Ohio. “This is a great opportunity to generate public awareness and support for EnergyShare, Dominion’s last-resort customer assistance program.”
Along with Co-Chairs Rose Dziak and Cheri Ashcraft, CPH promises a truly unforgettable experience each day at Festival of Trees. Guests will have the opportunity to make a special Share-a-Memory paper ornament, on which they are encouraged to write down a favorite holiday memory, which they can then display on a Memory Tree in the lobbies.
