Theaters announce their upcoming seasons many ways — from simply sending out press releases to hosting media conferences. But Cleveland Public Theatre ups the ante tonight by throwing a party. “We’ve never just opened the doors and let people hang out,” says spokesperson Mindy Herman. “It’s kind of an experiment.” The neighborhood should be ready for a party, what with the flurry of construction and renovation in the Gordon Square Arts District lately. Herman says artistic director Raymond Bobgan will announce CPT’s season of plays and other programs, plus give a sorta State of the Theatre address. Herman says the evening is planned as a “big ol’ dance party,” with bands, DJs and $2 Magic Hat brews. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org. The party runs from 8 p.m.-midnight at Cleveland Public Theatre’s Gordon Square Theatre (6415 Detroit Ave., 216.631.2727). It’s free. — Michael Gill
