 BRAVO CHALLENGES CLEVELAND WITH A LOCAL THEATRE COMPETITION
 AS PART OF ITS 4TH ANNUAL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL THEATRE COMPETITION
 Cox Cable, North Coast Cable and Cablevision
 to Coordinate with Local High Schools
 CLEVELAND, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- "To be or not to be?" -- that is the question many Cleveland area high schools will be asking their drama departments for Bravo's Cleveland Theatre Competition, a special local effort for the culture network's fourth Annual National High School Theatre Competition.
 Cox Cable, North Coast Cable and Cablevision, serving the Cleveland area, will work closely with local high schools to promote and coordinate the competition. Prominent Cleveland arts representatives will serve as judges, including Harriet Wadsworth, executive director of Cleveland Arts Consortium; Dave Jeckman, producing director of Green Briar Theatre; Carmi Amata, Cleveland Playhouse; and a representative of Playhouse Square.
 One winning school will receive tickets to a local professional play, a grant of $1,000, and automatic entry into the National High School Theatre Competition. The National Competition awards three winning schools a grant of $2,500, national recognition on Bravo, and a VIP Bravo-sponsored community event toasting their achievement.
 "The objective of Bravo's Local High School Theatre Competition is to provide recognition for educational programs on a local level that encourage excellence and creativity in the arts. Bravo looks forward to beginning this new component of the original National Competition with The Cleveland Cable Group in spreading the word to area high schools and ultimately selecting a winner," noted Kathleen Dore, general manager, Bravo.
 Entries for the 1992-1993 Cleveland competition must be 10 to 20 minutes in length and may consist of an excerpt from an existing play or original production.
 The entries, which must be received by Feb. 28, 1993, will be judged by local artists, and representatives from the local cable systems and Bravo (contact Bravo for complete contest rules). Judges will score from one to five based on creativity and quality of performance. The top three entries will be declared the winners.
