Follow the "nation's oldest continuously running resident theater company" from its modest beginnings to its rise as one of the largest regional theaters in the United States.

The Early History of the Cleveland Play House (1915-1984) currently features 156 images of the theater at its various locations as well as publicity stills from many of its memorable productions and of past alums. A brief timeline takes you through some of The Play House's major events, linking you to related images within the collection.

This is a wonderful treat for those who enjoy theater or may remember attending some of these productions.
