Mission Statement

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.

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. 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 and was classified as a 501c(3) nonprofit. CLP made the difficult decision in 2013 to close the Showboat Majestic in order to open a brand new state-of-the art facility: The Warsaw Federal Incline Theater. This building, completed in early 2015 in Price Hill’s historic Incline District, has further assisted in the revitalization of Cincinnati’s west side communities. In 2017, CLP merged with Madcap Puppets, a local theater company geared towards children and family performances. In 2018, the merging was complete with the construction of the new Madcap Education Center- a cultural arts center with a 137 seat theater, Madcap administrative offices, and multiple arts performance studios.
