Westfield Insurance Studio Theater


"Children and teachers have access to new programs, technology, and performances - all necessary for rich learning experiences. This partnership between public radio and television and local theatre is the first of its kind. To have something so innovative right here in Cleveland, it was the right thing for Westfield to support."
