SAY HIS NAME, A World Premiere Film from Cleveland School of the Arts

From page to stage, and now to film, this installment of our annual Festival of New Works is a community World Premiere film of an original student play.

In fall of 2021, CSA produced and directed SAY HIS NAME, a play co-written by students and Theater Director Dr. Scott Miller.  Because of the pandemic, seating and performance dates were limited.  Now, after tremendous reception, the work has been developed into a film to reach wider student groups and community audiences—led by support from Eric Gordon, CEO of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and the Community Engagement Team.

Additional time info:

As CSA returns to in-person learning at the school, we also value the LIVE excitement of welcoming the community to experience student works.  After a successful fall production in the CSA Black Box Theater, we are proud to offer a film version of this powerful play.  We sincerely thank you for joining us to experience amazing art, created by Cleveland’s own talented youth.  New works from today’s artists foster a vibrant tomorrow for our entire community!

Fancy Attire is recommended for this exciting World Premiere, and a reception follows the film showing.

Special Thanks to Our Generous Sponsors & Supporters of New Works and Festival Productions:  Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation, Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, Ohio Arts Council, Cleveland Metropolitan School District, Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, Victor C. Laughlin, M.D, Memorial Foundation Trust, The Meisel Family, and the David and Inez Myers Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio.

Generous support reaches CSA’s artist scholars and professional local artists.  Special thanks is expressed as the CSA Festival of New Works is supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.  It was also made possible in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature to the Ohio Arts Council (OAC).  The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally, and economically.
