Monthly News Update

If you haven't been to CVLT lately (and seen our incredible renovations), we have good reasons for you in February! Whether you're here for the final weekend of the wildly funny Moonlight and Magnolias, the first of our RSVP improv troupe's free monthly events, to enjoy the Chagrin Studio Orchestra's Valentine's Day Extravaganza, or to attend our open auditions, we look forward to seeing you here on River Street!

Moonlight and Magnolias

Moonlight and Magnolias

Five weeks into the filming of MGM's Gone with the Wind, producer David O. Selznick fired the clueless original director and brought in 'script doctor' Ben Hecht to fix the awful screenplay. But Hecht had never read the novel! Ron Hutchinson's farce, based on historical events, follows the frantic five-day session in which Selznick, Hecht, director Victor Fleming, and assistant Miss Poppenghul hammered out a legendary new script.

"The care and thought put into this production makes it easy to forget that you are sitting in a community theater, let alone one with 'Little' in its title."

~ Eric Kish, Cleveland Jewish News

CVLT's resident improvised theatre group, RSVP, hosts the first of their monthly improvisation evenings. At this casual event held on the second Thursday of each month, troupe members will present improvised scenes in a relaxed environment that will allow for audience participation and discussion. Refreshments will be available.

If you haven't made it out for one of RSVP's shows, if you'd like to learn more about improvisation, or if you just want to hang out with some fun people, join us in the upper floor of the Neff Building (above our new Box Office).

No tickets are required. A $5 donation to CVLT's Putting It Together campaign is requested.
