Cleveland Play House offers you ways to be a CPH insider all season long! With our InsideCPH programs, you’ll get up-close-and-personal with the people and processes that make our work happen — all in a fun and informal setting.
They’re always open to the public, and always FREE of charge.
Behind-the-Scenes are engaging, fun - and FREE! - opportunities for audiences to gain insight into the artistic process of Cleveland Play House actors and directors, and each of these intimate sessions is tied to the action on our stages. Whether it's a performance workshop, an enlightening discussion, or a rockin' demonstration of musical chops, you'll get a chance to rub shoulders with the talented performers you'll see right here at CPH. Meet the actors, learn something new, and have a great time with new friends, all for FREE! Be sure to check back here for further details on the next upcoming event.
Hear from the director and designers, then sit in on a technical rehearsal ("tech") to see how set, lights, sound, costumes and actors all come together as opening night nears!
Stay after the show to continue the conversation our plays start! TalkBacks offer the chance to interact with the cast and CPH Artistic Staff in an open and lively Q&A about the play and the questions it raises. Tickets and reservations are not required for this event.
These fun and interactive 25-minute conversations happen right before the show in the Allen Theatre Complex. Pull back the curtain early and connect with the play in an engaging and relaxed setting, beginning 45 minutes before every subscription and MFA performance.
Join us for these hour-long panel discussions with community leaders 90 minutes before the first Sunday preview of select shows.
Held one hour prior to curtain for select shows, a CPH artisan walks audiences through the process of creating featured production elements such as costumes, props, and set pieces.
