Color the City, an original play
Cleveland Public Theatre’s Student Theatre Enrichment Program (STEP) is a rigorous arts-based program that provides hands-on job training, engaging Cleveland youth ages 14-19 in a powerful 8-week intensive that focuses on excellence in performance, play creation, writing, production, and set design/construction.
Celebrate STEP’s 25th year by seeing a free performance of an original play, Color the City, inspired by a South American Los Andes story, Huatiacuri, the Story of a Mountain.
The citizens of the Black and White City have forgotten the Colorful Mountain, once their landmark and prized jewel with otherworldly powers. As the wealthy White family seeks a cure for their sick father, a colorful woman from the Mountain, named Star, roams the city to unlock a mysterious dream. Can a black and white land rediscover the beauty and richness of colors? Led by Bolivian artist Diego Aramburo, Color the City showcases Cleveland youth as they work to build a brighter and more colorful world.
