Partnership with Story Forum


Giving young people an opportunity to create stories and bring them to life is an important part of Radio on the Lake Theatre’s mission.  We are proud to partner with Story Forum, a Shaker Heights-based organization, to nurture the next generation of playwrights.

Story Forum provides a platform for story exchange. Through communications, arts, and literature, we build on age appropriate themes that engage and help children explore their interests.
