The mission of the Indiana Repertory Theatre is to produce top-quality, professional theatre and related activities, providing experiences that will engage, surprise, challenge and entertain people throughout their lifetimes, helping us build a vital and vibrant community.

Welcome to the IRT’s 2015-2016 Season Annual Impact Report! This report contains lots of great information about last season and the amazing impact that your charitable gift had on our organization, and how we, in turn, were able to make great impact in serving the adults and children of Indiana with life-changing art. We hope that you will find the stories inspiring.


The Indiana Repertory Theatre will be a life-long destination of choice for people of all ages and backgrounds seeking enjoyable and meaningful experiences. Using theatre as a springboard for both personal reflection and community discussion, our productions and programs will inspire our neighbors to learn about themselves and others. As an arts leader in the state of Indiana, the IRT invites collaborations with other top-quality community institutions, with the goal of making Indiana a vibrant home of cultural expression, economic vitality, and a diverse, informed, and engaged citizenry.

Looking back at our accomplishments from the past season, we are keenly aware that none of it would have been possible without your support. After all, contributed income covered a full 50% of our expenses last season! It is no exaggeration to say that it is only because of you that the IRT was able to spend another season here in Indiana entertaining, engaging and challenging audiences of all ages, opening minds and sparking conversations. As you flip through the report, we hope you feel a tremendous sense of pride in what your investment has made possible, as we served a record number of adults and children from Central Indiana and across the state. As a donor to the Indiana Repertory Theatre, you are an investor, a partner and a champion! Thank you for making our 44th season possible. We look forward to sharing another fresh and exciting season of theatre with you in 2016-2017. With gratitude,


Because of your support, the IRT has grown to become the largest nonprofit theatre in the state of Indiana. As we look back on an amazing 44th season of producing professional theatre and arts education programming, we are incredibly grateful to count you as a partner in all that we do.

April 4, 1968: Before We Forgot How to Dream by James Still premiered at the IRT last fall and was set during a volatile period for race relations in American history. The events of the play took place on that fateful day in April 1968 when Robert Kennedy announced the death of Martin Luther King Jr. to a predominantly black Indianapolis audience at what was supposed to have been a campaign rally. Both black and white leaders expected rioting and violence as seen in nearly every other major American city, but Indianapolis remained peaceful. IRT Playwright-in-Residence James Still sought to answer a simple question: why didn’t Indianapolis riot? His inquiry unearthed honest, thought-provoking, difficult and meaningful discourse about race relations in our home city. James spent more than five years listening to the stories and memories of Hoosiers. Some were in the park when Kennedy announced the assassination of Dr. King, others worked on the Kennedy campaign, and still others simply remembered where they were, what they felt, and how they spent the hours after tragedy struck on April 4, 1968. James captured the visceral memories of our community members and painted them into a picture of what that evening was like for the fictitious Fields family, who are busy going about their lives when the stunning news stops them in their tracks.

terrible day... All of Still’s research and interviews have been brilliantly woven into a story that reminds us of our choices in responding to injustice and hate; sorrow or anger; hope or despair; action or resignation.” Critics also couldn’t help but note the production’s ability to contextualize current conversations about race. Wei-Huan Chen from the Indianapolis Star wrote, “…Complicated and resonant themes form an undercurrent to that day-in-the-life simplicity. April 4, 1968 premieres at a time when Americans are having trouble agreeing on how upset they should be getting over racism. They are fighting not just over racism itself but also over where it begins and ends and how they should go on talking about it…” This production is an important addition to the IRT’s fourteen-play Indiana Series, which many of our patrons express is one of the most unique aspects of the organization. Above and beyond adding to the stories about our state and our communities, April 4, 1968 ignited community discussion and encouraged our patrons to reflect and voice their reactions to important issues of race in our community.

The production of April 4, 1968 impacted the Indianapolis community in significant ways. It discussed an important moment in Indianapolis history and allowed modern audiences to contemplate the similarities and differences between April 1968 and October 2015. A patron noted in their review of the show, “James Still’s April 4, 1968: Before We Forgot How to Dream drew us in with the first sound of WTLC’s sixties music and kept us immersed in the events of that hopeful, then

The IRT believes all people, particularly Indiana’s children, should have the opportunity to learn the lessons of humanity through the most vivid medium available, live theatre. The IRT reserves 40% of its production season for performances specifically targeting young people ages 3-18.

From our student matinees to our workshops and classes, every aspect of our education programming is underwritten by the support provided to the theatre by our donors! Continue reading to discover how our educational programming has helped one young artist explore her passion and gain self-confidence.


Alyssa Marie Gaines just completed the 6th grade at Merle Sidener Gifted Academy, and this past season she was in the cast of IRT’s production of A Christmas Carol. This was Alyssa’s second appearance in A Christmas Carol. In addition to performing on our stage, Alyssa has also been part of the IRT’s

Summer Conservatory, a program that immerses students in the creative process of theatre. Alyssa and her parents, April & Mark Gaines, provided insight into the impact that being a part of the IRT’s programming has had on their family.





My favorite experience at the IRT was also my first experience in live theatre; the first year I participated in A Christmas Carol. I had not done any shows before, and I was even new to the auditioning process. I’m so glad that I got the chance to work with talented professionals who taught me a lot. Another experience that I loved was participating in the IRT’s Summer Conservatory. It was great to be able to learn from professionals, and I had the opportunity to meet other kids who shared my love of acting. Conservatory was such a judgement-free zone, and I was able to make mistakes boldly and learn from them without having to worry about being laughed at or made fun of. Conservatory helped to build my confidence, and hopefully I can do it again next summer.


Alyssa’s involvement in theatre has been very important to us because it has served as a vehicle for exploring her passions. It has also allowed her to be well rounded in her interests. Alyssa has always been a very inquisitive and outgoing child. Over the years she has been involved in everything from lacrosse to robotics to poetry. The theatre has provided her with an outlet where she can express herself creatively in a supportive and fun learning environment. We became involved with the IRT when Alyssa came home one day and said that she wanted to audition for A Christmas Carol. She had never taken an acting class, had never been on stage and had never been to an audition. However, the staff at the IRT were so friendly and approachable that the process was not intimidating at all. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to participate in IRT programs, and this experience has helped her grow not only as an actor but as a person.
