ABOUT ST. JOHN’S CHURCH
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 on 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.

AN IMMERSIVE ARTS EXPERIENCE
CPT stages this event on one of the most historically significant sites in Greater Cleveland – St. John’s Episcopal Church or, as it was known on the Underground Railroad, “Station Hope.” Audiences tour through 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 interactive art activities help shape the audience experience, while choral performances provide a powerful soundscape for the outdoor spaces in and around the church.
