Cleveland Play House Announces 2019 Benefit COPACABANA

Cleveland Play House (CPH) will host its annual benefit, COPACABANA, on Saturday evening, June 1, 2019, in the Allen Theatre at Playhouse Square. The gala will include dinner and dancing, a live auction and an exciting theatrical presentation. CPH's annual benefit, two-time winner of Currents Magazine's Black Tie Award, promises to be another not-to-be-missed party.

Co-Chairs for the benefit are Nancy Hancock Griffith and Stacy L. Bauer. We are also excited that Christopher Kascsak, Design Studio Cleveland LLC, is our event designer for a sixth consecutive year.

KeyBank, Presenting Sponsor for COPACABANA, and Cleveland Play House are proud to announce the Centennial Star Award recipients for 2019: Luci Schey Spring and The Ralph and Luci Schey Foundation, who will be honored at the event.

"The CPH Centennial Star Award is given to those who demonstrate special commitment to the mission of Cleveland Play House while striving to make our community a better place for all who call it home," states CPH Managing Director Kevin Moore. "It is therefore a privilege to honor Luci Schey Spring and the Ralph and Luci Schey Foundation as our awardees for 2019. Luci brings tremendous passion to her long-time service on the CPH Board of Directors and so many other important causes in our community, while the Foundation's support for health, education and arts organizations is inspiring to us all."

Cleveland Play House, founded in 1915 and recipient of the 2015 Regional Theatre Tony Award, is America's first professional regional theatre. Throughout its rich history, CPH has remained dedicated to its mission to inspire, stimulate, and entertain diverse audiences across Northeast Ohio by producing plays and theatre education programs of the highest professional standards. CPH has produced more than 100 world and/or American premieres, and over its long history more than 12 million people have attended over 1,600 productions. Today, Cleveland Play House celebrates the beginning of its second century of service while performing in three state-of-the art venues at Playhouse Square in downtown Cleveland.

Cleveland Play House is made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC). The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically. Cleveland Play House is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
