Cincinnati Landmark Productions, through its
creation and management of the Covedale Center for the Performing Arts and
Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre (its summer theatre for teenagers), and
through its commitment to found a new theatre in the Incline District, provides
a continuum of artistic opportunity for performers and technicians while: acting
as an advocate for community revitalization; bringing cultural benefits to those
communities in which its venues reside; and developing young artists through
opportunity, training and excellence in production, while enhancing the quality
of life for patrons and the Cincinnati area as a whole. (Revised Oct. 2013)
Cincinnati Landmark Productions (CLP) began as
Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre (CYPT), a theatre for teenagers, in 1982.
By 1991, CYPT became the producer for the summer stock Showboat Majestic
utilizing paid performers of all ages, while keeping the teen program at
Westwood Town Hall.
In May 2002, CYPT purchased the Covedale Cinema at
4990 Glenway Avenue to convert it into a performing arts center. The first
phase was completed on July 26, 2002, when CYPT opened the Covedale Center for
the Performing Arts with sold-out shows of West Side Story. In Fall 2002,
the Covedale began a subscription series featuring professional performers of
all ages. Today, all 5 phases of renovations outlined in 2002 have been
completed at this venue.
By 2006, Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre was
re-organized as Cincinnati Landmark Productions. This reflected the
organization’s evolution into: the production company for Showboat
Majestic; the owners/operators of the Covedale Center for the Performing
Arts; and Cincinnati Young People’s Theatre teen program. CLP also
produces events, concerts, children’s programs and an arts/crafts fair at its
landmark theatres. In September of 2013, CLP bade farewell to the Showboat
Majestic. The Incline Theatre will open in 2015..
