Professional Theater

Our Professional Theater Season

We are proud to be a part of the Northeast Ohio’s professional theater landscape. Like our colleagues Playhouse Square, Cleveland Play House, Dobama Theatre, and Great Lakes Theater, Beck Center has a letter of agreement with Actors’ Equity Association. We hire professional actors from the Northeast Ohio region, including members of Actors’ Equity. Specifically, we are a Small Professional Theater (SPT) based on the number of seats, number of our performances, and the maximum weekly hours of work we provide to actors. We are also a producing theater. We produce every show on our stages, meaning we choose the play, cast and rehearse it, build the sets, props, and costumes, direct and perform the music, and design lights and sound, utilizing regional resources and talent, all for you, our valued patron of the arts. Thank you for supporting live theater!

Our professional theater season is filled with the signature blend of eclectic titles you expect: including a heated drama featuring a Hollywood film star, an encore production of a blockbuster family musical, and the ninth collaboration with Baldwin Wallace University Music Theatre program. This wonderful mix of musicals and plays is as collectively diverse as you’ll find in the NE Ohio community in any one season.

It is our honor and great pleasure to guide you on a theatrical journey each and every season. Your generous support allows Beck Center to provide the dynamic, high quality, and diverse theater that intrigues audiences and critics alike.
