Cleveland Play House (CPH) is thrilled to produce a world premiere holiday play by award-winning playwright Eric Coble, based on the novella A Carol for Cleveland penned by best-selling mystery author Les Roberts. Directed by CPH Associate Artistic Director Laura Kepley, A Carol for Cleveland is a holiday event by Clevelanders, for Clevelanders, about Clevelanders. Brimming with memories and laughter, this heartwarming play is a timeless message of hope, love, and the true meaning of the holidays.
The CPH production of A Carol for Cleveland will begin in the Allen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare on Friday, November 30 and run through Sunday, December 23, 2012. Tickets are available by calling 216-241-6000 or online at www.clevelandplayhouse.com. A Carol for Cleveland is sponsored by Dominion EnergyShare, with Zinner & Co. as an associate sponsor, and presented with support from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture and the Ohio Arts Council.
“One of CPH’s core values is Community. I can’t think of a production that says it better than one written by two of Cleveland’s most prominent artists and a wonderful cast that includes 14 local actors,” states Michael Bloom, CPH Artistic Director.
In further support of the community, CPH is helping to raise money and awareness to aid needy families during the holidays in the Cleveland area through the run of A Carol for Cleveland by working with The Centers for Families and Children to provide holiday meals for the hungry, and with EnergyShare, Dominion East Ohio's energy assistance program for anyone who faces financial hardships from unemployment or family crisis
