Station Hope: a FREE, One-night Event, Sat. 4.26

Presented by Cleveland Public Theatre, Ohio City Incorporated and Ward 3 Councilman Joe Cimperman, Station Hope is a multi-arts event that celebrates the triumphs of the Underground Railroad, the history of St. John's Church and the contemporary struggles for freedom and justice.

Much like Cleveland Public Theatre's Pandemonium, Arts In August, and Party in the Gordon Square, Station Hope offers audiences a rich and fun experience created by artists throughout Northeast Ohio. CPT will stage this event on one of the most historically significant sites in Greater Cleveland—St. John's Church or Station Hope as it was known on the Underground Railroad. You will tour St. John's sanctuary, parish hall, and intricate basements to view an array of short performances of dance, theatre, storytelling and music. Visual art displays and public arts activities permeate the event and choral performance set the atmosphere of the outdoor spaces in and around the church.

Station Hope is a FREE, one-night-only event, Saturday April 26, 2014, 6–10PM.

St. John's Episcopal Church is located at 2600 Church Street in the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland. St. John's is the oldest consecrated building in Cuyahoga County. As a church active in the Underground Railroad, St. John's was a last stop for fleeing slaves seeking their freedom across the waters of Lake Erie and the church's steeple acted as a beacon of freedom.
