Cleveland Public Theatre's STEP Program for Urban Teens

For more than  twenty years, Cleveland Public Theatre has offered a rigorous arts education and job training program to low income urban teens. The "Student Theatre Enrichment Program" or "STEP", is an eight week intensive program that gives young people an opportunity to earn money, create art and develop job skills while working with professional artists. Ideastream's Gabriel Kramer caught a performance of their original play "And Yet We Shine" this week at Cleveland's Outhwaite Community Center.

Gabriel Kramer is a reporter/producer and the host of “NewsDepth,” Ideastream Public Media's news show for kids.
