Cleveland directors, writers, actors, designers and composers can now participate in Cleveland Public Theatre's (CPT) "Theatre Creation" class for half the cost of tuition with "sweat equity" arrangement!

The August 30th deadline for application to the class is almost here! The 10-week exploration of leading and creating original performances costs $750.00, but students can also opt to get up to half off that price through volunteer experiences at CPT, or "sweat equity".

The course is taught by CPT Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan. It gives local artists the opportunity to go deeper into the artistic process, meet local collaborators, and to create higher levels of new work. While working through the class, "sweat equity" participants may be involved in Volunteer duties that include marketing support, backstage assistance, ushering and more.

CPT is accepting email applications only, which are available online by clicking HERE.

CLASS DESCRIPTION
Theatre Creation Class (10 weeks) is for theatre directors, writers, actors, designers, and composers who wish to explore the rigors of leading the creation of original performances. In this class everyone will direct, act and create. Participants will also be paired to collaborate on some assignments. The class will not follow a conventional curriculum and will evolve throughout the process. The class will include the creation of 3-4 scene assignments in order for participants to explore the class topics and develop new work.

Director/Creator Raymond Bobgan’s work centers on collaborating with performers to create performance. Deep work with actors on the creation of physical, mental and emotional scores, montage of these scores with original text, layering of various elements, song creation, storytelling, and the moving of objects to transform space are all hallmarks of his unique approach to theatre. Raymond will also share techniques for engaging people in making and writing story.
