Let your imagination PLAY!

This season, join Talespinner Children's Theatre in providing affordable, quality professional theatre and theatre-infused education to the families of Cleveland and its surrounding communities. Through your support, TCT can continue to expand its outreach programming around the city and sustain an open environment for community, understanding and learning at our home in the Gordon Square Arts District!

As Cleveland's ONLY professional children's theatre, TCT develops and produces highly imaginative, original, collaborative, and interactive professional works for children that also stimulate creative growth in its artists.

At Harlequinade 2018, TCT honors Cleveland Public Theatre Executive Artistic Director Raymond Bobgan and Cleveland State University Associate Professor Holly Holsinger for their excellence in the arts, and for the invaluable contributions they have made to what Talespinner is and the theatre community is in Cleveland. Their work in the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion has been unwavering, and their welcome of new companies and artists has been warm and nurtur­ing, supportive beyond measure.

At any time, TCT's productions may involve acting, dance, music, puppetry, tumbling, drumming, and numerous other ar­tistic disciplines as imagined by the artistic teams working with and for TCT, and are open to all creative possibility. TCT's aim is to bring theatre to the community in its fullest form providing excitement, growth and joy for all who are involved in and/or touched by its work.

Over the past year, we have expanded our season, with the addition of a fifth in-house production, formed partnerships with organizations such as SPACES and Providence House as well as secured major funding through The Cleveland Foundation, earmarked for the creation of programming for our audience members with special needs.

Rooted in its mission, our team strives to reach across socio-economic, cultural and traditional boundaries to help awaken and bring better understanding by opening eyes, ears, hearts and imaginations in the young people (and artists) of the Greater Cleveland area.
