Cover Story: Jack Louiso Is Theater's Pied Piper

CEA Hall of Fame inductee thrills kids and adults with live theater

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 22, 2007
Jack Louiso knows kids. Maybe that's because he's kind of a big kid himself. He's taught kids to sing, dance and act at the School for Creative and Performing Arts for two decades and has served as artistic director for the Children's Theatre of Cincinnati since 1992. Those are the obvious reasons why the League of Cincinnati Theatres has named him the 2007 recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award and why he'll be recognized Monday at the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards when he's inducted into the CEA Hall of Fame.
