While he continued to perform throughout college, Walls’ continued education and desire to build his career quickly overwhelmed the opportunities for future performances. “When I started graduate school, I left it all behind, and I’ve always missed it,” said Walls. “The last (performance) I did was around 16 years ago.” After following his niece’s involvement with local community theater, Walls decided to take a chance and audition for a small part in the upcoming production of the Broadway classic, “Guys and Dolls.” “I originally auditioned for a smaller, supporting role, but got a call back for Nathan Detroit, a leading role in the show,” said Walls. “I felt very humbled they (production members) took that kind of a risk on me as a firsttime performer with them, and as someone who had not performed in so long.” Walls says he understands the pressure is now on him to deliver with his performance. The rehearsal schedule is a massive investment, especially the volunteer status of those involved. For the past month, the cast and crew have been holding rehearsals in the evenings for three hours a day, five days a week. All of this passion and hard work has only inspired Walls to do even better. “The amount of work required by everyone, cast members and crew members, is the most impressive thing I have seen since I started working with the Civic (Theatre),” said Walls. “It has really rekindled this fire inside me (to perform).” ◆ WHAT: “Guys and Dolls” ◆ WHEN: Friday through May 12 ◆ WHERE: The Tarkington, 3 Center Green, Carmel ◆ COST: $39 general, $20 child ◆ INFO: thecenterfortheperformingarts.org

‘I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change’ hopes to create the perfect date night By Christian Sorrell • email@example.com
Starting this week, Actors Theatre of Indiana will be closing out its 2011-2012 season with “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change.” The musical comedy is the second-longest-running off-Broadway musical. It first premiered in 1996 and continued until July 2008 after 5,003 performances. “The show is about people trying to connect. It’s very, very funny and really follows the fine line of relationships,” said Don Farrell, co-founder of ATI, the show’s director and a member of the cast. “The central idea of the show is based in truth. We spend the first half of our lives trying to find the perfect mate, and then the second half trying to change him or her.” Farrell first saw the show years ago while on a date. He found himself and his date poking fun at one another over the similarities between the events portrayed on the stage and the events they had been through in their own relationship. “It is the perfect show for date night,” said Farrell. The show is comprised of a number of vignettes connected by the central theme of love and relationships and utilizes a cast of four,
along with two musicians, a pianist and a violinist. Farrell was quick to point out the entire cast and crew members are talented and quite established throughout Indiana. “Everyone in our production is a professional in his or her respective trade,” said Farrell. “That’s one of the things that set ATI apart from other theater companies in the area. It’s the difference between professional theater and community theater.” ATI has rated the performance PG-13. Farrell stated while the show certainly doesn’t include R-rated elements, some portions wouldn’t be appropriate for children. For a chance to win two tickets to “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” search “Actors Theatre of Indiana” on Facebook and “Like” its page. ◆ WHAT: “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” ◆ WHEN: Friday through May 20 ◆ WHERE: The Studio Theater, 4 Center Green, Carmel ◆ COST: $40 general, $36.25 senior, $30.50 student ◆ INFO: thecenterfortheperformingarts. org

In this riveting mystery, the focus is not on who commits the crime, but what happens after the crime is committed. Early in the story, Yasuko Hanaoka kills her abusive ex-husband when she and her teenage daughter are forced to defend themselves against him. What follows is a high-stakes chess match between two brilliant minds: Yasuko’s next door neighbor Ishigami, a quiet high school math teacher harboring a secret crush on the beautiful Yasuko, who assists in covering up the crime; and Ishigami’s former university classmate Yukawa, a talented physicist, who is helping the police with its investigation. After a brief reunion between the two, Yukawa is convinced Ishigami is somehow involved with the crime. It is fascinating to read how Ishigami attempts to stay one step ahead of the police by

ma on a counterfeiting scheme. Loosely adapted from an Icelandic film, "Contraband" is tightly-wound and a great star showcase for Wahlberg. Movie: B
A compact, tidy little heist thriller, "Contraband" took in a major score at the box office early this year, raking in $66 million on a budget of just $25 million. And it features Mark Wahlberg being so effective in a role tailor-made for him, as the cool confidence man, the underdog who keeps one step ahead of those looking to do him in. I must confess that early in his career, I was not a fan of Wahlberg's thespian skills. Truth be told, I mocked him for his wooden line delivery and unyielding sour expression. But he's grown considerably as an actor over the years, and seems to have gotten smart about what sort of parts work best for him. Wahlberg plays Chris Faraday, a one-time expert smuggler who's decided to go straight. But he gets sucked by into that world when his brother-in-law dumps a large shipment of drugs after the authorities raid his boat.
The local crime boss (Giovanni Ribisi) insists Chris cover the loss, and the only way to raise that kind of scratch quickly is to head to Pana-
