Submission Policy:

Cleveland Play House is committed to casting locally, in New York, and occasionally in other cities. Cleveland Play House generally conducts a general open call in the spring for all union and nonunion actors from the local area. Check website for specific information. Following the open call, individuals may be called in to read for specific productions during the course of the season. For actors outside the Cleveland area, the theater uses Casting Director Paul Fouquet of Elissa Myers Casting, 333 W. 52nd St., #1008, New York, NY, 10019. Actors from out of town who are passing through may contact CPH Associate Producer Corey Atkins to arrange a general audition, depending on staff availability. All interested actors may send a headshot/resume to Casting at the address provided above.

Script Submissions:
Cleveland Play House regrets that it can no longer accept unsolicited manuscripts or 10-page samples unless the writer resides in Ohio. For Ohio writers, provide a synopsis, 10-page sample, and resume. The theater is looking for plays of any stripe that are either previously produced or are still looking for their first production. Accepts proposals on a year-round basis. The preferred method for receiving script submissions, queries, dialogue samples, and synopses is via email. Materials can be emailed to:
