The Clifton Performance Theatre (The Players) is an actor driven cooperative. Founded by Clifton resident Carol Brammer and built by the hard work of Cincinnati’s professional actors, directors and designers. The Clifton Performance Theatre offers classes, workshops, plays, musical and artistic events to children and adults. It is also the home and performance space for a professional adult Ensembles.A primary mission of CPT is to keep our union (Equity) actors living and working in our community. Based on Black Box principles, it allows both the actors and the audience to enjoy the performing arts in their most creative, intimate form. The space transforms monthly, taking you to our current production’s setting as well as remaining a studio for learning available to all those wishing to continue or begin their craft.
The Clifton Performance Theatre youth programing is a non profit organization. We can and will always continue with the support of those who believe the performing arts can make a difference in a person’s life, we strive to: keep tuition and ticket prices affordable and provide scholarships, part-time jobs and internship opportunities. We do most of the pre-production work in-house, keeping the cost of productions at a minimum. Our sets and costumes are often built out of reclaimed materials, and we partner with the other businesses in our district to promote the health and viability of the Clifton community.
When you see a show at the Clifton Performance Theatre, you get a true storefront experience – an intimate, highly-charged, actor-driven theatrical experience.
