Through CARE (short for Compassionate Arts Remaking Education) the Cleveland Play House offers a program for children that uses theater techniques to enhance the study of English language arts.

Typically, the classes are in-person and in tandem with what's happening in the classrooms of participating Cleveland area schools—obviously, an option that's been dramatically altered by the temporary closure of schools. In response to this situation, the Play House has not only moved its classes online and made participation free, it's expanded the offerings to provide arts and wellness programming for all ages.

Classes are separated by age group and include subjects like fitness and developing a radio drama for grade schoolers, acting and creative writing for middle school kids, self-care during the pandemic and "Adulting 101" for teens, and meditation and puppetry for adults. 

The next round of classes begins May 18 and continues through the end of June, and advance registration is required. If you'd like to get a head start, the page with registration info also has a link to prerecorded lessons from the company's teaching artists.
