Come out and see the staged reading culmination of a week-long workshop for some of the Cleveland area's newest and brightest children's theatre playwrights! At the completion of the 2017 PLAYground program, one of the four scripts may be placed in consideration for a full, mainstage production in our 2019 season. Be the first of your friends to be able to say, "I saw it before anyone else did!”

Each production runs 45 minutes to an hour.

Admission is free, donations welcome. No reservations necessary.

There will be a short talkback with the playwright, director and cast following each performance, which we invite you to stay for, if you would like!
