The City is Our Stage

Radio on the Lake Theatre was proud to be a part of The City is Our Stage on August 15, 2020.  Audience members traveled throughout the Cleveland area to enjoy performances from many different local arts organizations.  ROTLT performed the famous “alien invasion” scene from the classic radio play War of the Worlds.  

In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ROTLT is looking for new and innovative ways to bring theater to life.  Thanks to everyone who visited us for this exciting initiative.
