DEAR FRIENDS,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 Season Annual Impact Report for the Indiana Repertory Theatre! Our report is full of information about last season’s programming and the impact it had on our community. As an investor in the IRT, we hope you read this report with a sense of pride in what your generosity has made possible. This year’s report contains some new information, including expanded reporting on community engagement programming, such as Many Mentors and Scrooge Gives Back. Programs like these leverage the IRT’s mission in order to create a ripple of good that reaches even further out into our community. We hope you enjoy learning a bit more about them! As you may have heard us say in the past, contributed income—donations from you— cover half of the expenses here at the Theatre, and last season was no exception. As we look back on some of our favorite moments from the 2016-2017 Season, we are humbled by the fact that none of it would have been possible without your partnership. Thank you for making our 45th season possible! We look forward to sharing more evenings of surprising and inspiring theatre with you in 2017-2018. With gratitude,

Janet Allen Executive Artistic Director

Suzanne Sweeney Managing Director


“We look forward to every show and brag to our friends and relatives about how good the product at the IRT is. We have seen Broadway shows, and IRT is every bit as good.”

BUILDING ACCESS & LOYALTY In an effort to make the IRT more accessible to people across our community, we implemented a new Value Seats program in 2015-2016. This program ensures that a guaranteed number of affordable $25 seats are available at each public performance. We were excited to double the number of Value Seats available in 2016-2017 during our second year of this program, offering 40 Value Seats at each Upperstage performance and 48 Value Seats at each Mainstage performance.

SIGNATURE SIX SEASON TICKET PACKAGE HOLDERS Season Ticket holders are the Theatre’s most loyal patrons, providing a guaranteed audience base for our programming each season. Season Ticket Packages have been on the decline nationally for many years now. The 2016-2017 Season was the first in many that the IRT saw an increase in the number of package holders!

FINDING HOME: INDIANA AT 200 200 YEARS OF INDIANA HISTORY AND TWO UNIQUE EVENINGS AT THE IRT

The creation of new work is in itself a risky proposition; the creation of new work by 29 writers catapults that risk into potential chaos. The ultimate success of Finding Home: Indiana at 200 was a result of years of experience with new play development and the sheer professionalism and stamina of the artists involved. This production brought together writers, actors, designers, and musicians from all walks of life, resulting in the creation of a true Hoosier anthology. The public’s warm reception of the production and the resulting ticket sales had much to do with our ongoing Indiana Series, a group of plays that focus on sharing Hoosier stories and traditions. Over the past twenty years, 16 plays have been produced as a part of the Indiana Series, and the remarkable reaction to these plays from our audiences allowed Finding Home to become a lodestar of that process of developing place-specific work. The show brought historical figures to life amid song, poetry, dialogue, and monologue —an approach that proved particularly impactful for our student audiences, where sales exceeded expectations by nearly 30%. There was tremendous enthusiasm from teachers and students alike for the productions. One teacher wrote: “Because we are studying Indiana History in our Social Studies curriculum, everything that took place in the play has been touched upon in our studies... History was literally brought to life before them in an unbelievably engaging manner!” Through this live theatre experience, students had a more nuanced interaction with the concepts and people of Indiana’s past, resulting in particularly lively post-show discussions.

6

Rivaling the excitement of the live production itself is the news that Finding Home will have a life beyond the closing performance. Due to an extraordinary funding opportunity, we are now in the process of moving the production into broadcast form and DVD mastering with our partners at WFYI. An investment was made to professionally film and edit the show before it closed, which allowed this transfer into other media to happen. This will be the first time in IRT history that one of our productions moves from a live performance platform into a digital one. The DVD set will be given to every public library in the state of Indiana, and is expected to air on WFYI in December 2017. The ability to conceive, develop, and produce this ambitious theatrical undertaking was made possible by the generous support of individuals, foundations, corporations, and public funds. In the true spirit of Hoosiers coming together to make something possible, Finding Home was made possible by all of you. In the Community: Finding Home provided a wealth of opportunities for us to take a little bit of the IRT into the community. We partnered with the following organizations and events to present songs and scenes from Finding Home : - Congregation Beth-El Zedek - Eli Lilly Corporate headquarters - Indiana Bicentennial Commission - Indiana Historical Society - Indiana State Fair - Indiana Statehouse Grounds - The Penrod Arts Fair - Sun King Brewery

SNAPSHOT: EDUCATION IMPACT

EXPLORING STAGES THE GENEROSITY OF IRT DONORS ALLOWS US TO BRING LIVE THEATRE TO OUR YOUNGEST AUDIENCE MEMBERS IN AN INNOVATIVE WAY!

A key element of the IRT’s mission is to engage audiences of all ages and to serve Hoosiers throughout their lifetimes by producing inspiring theatre. To fulfill this promise, the IRT debuted a new program in 2014 called Exploring Stages. This program serves our youngest theatre-goers, children from 3-8 years old, who now have the opportunity to experience theatre for the first time in an environment created specifically for them in both content and scale. The Theatre has presented three shows in the Exploring Stages series. In the 2016-2017 season, the IRT produced Stuart Little, the story of a tiny hero exploring the world around him. Pre-schools and elementary schools from across Central Indiana filed into The Cabaret, designed for the production as an informal and child-scaled space, to be immersed in Stuart’s world. They were taken on adventures across Central Park, met a friendly bird, and helped Stuart with his nemesis: the evil cat Snowbell. Children not only saw the play, but were also able to interact directly by petting Snowbell’s robe and answering questions posed by the cast during the show. The IRT believes that professional performing arts should play a larger role in enriching the educational experience for young learners. To that end, Exploring Stages helps children grow through specially crafted pre-show and post-show activities that are tailored to the emotional and cognitive development of young children. These activities help children develop empathy based on

8

character interactions in the play while improving early literacy. In addition to providing remarkable access to live theatre for young children, Exploring Stages also allows the IRT to engage local artists, particularly young actors, in professional productions. Young actor Lex Lumpkin was 11 years old when he brought Stuart to life this year, making him more accessible to children than if the role had been filled by an adult actor. Lex and his family have been involved with the IRT for two years in our Summer Conservatory for Youth. He was able to take the skills he learned during his classes and apply them to his first IRT production. “I believe that being Stuart Little carried a huge responsibility,” Lumpkin said. “We wanted to teach kids to be adventurous and responsible, and the importance of caring for others. To be a part of something that could possibly change the lives of young kids and to help shape the way they view others was a great experience for me. I learned so much and I had a great time. I will always be grateful to the IRT for taking a chance on me.” Your support of the IRT makes the most thrilling part of Exploring Stages possible: watching young audience members—many experiencing live theatre for the first time—wriggling comfortably on the floor in The Cabaret, their faces alight with the joy of an experience created just for them.

SNAPSHOT: COMMUNITY IMPACT

ENGAGEMENT PROGRAMS THE IRT SEEKS TO INCREASE THE IMPACT OF OUR MISSION WITHIN THE COMMUNITY BY HOSTING EVENTS, BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS, AND PRESENTING PROGRAMMING THAT COMPLEMENTS THE WORK ON OUR STAGES. IN 2016-2017, THE COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT PROGRAMS DESCRIBED BELOW DEEPENED CONNECTIONS WITHIN OUR COMMUNITY, SPARKING IMPORTANT DISCUSSIONS IN AND AROUND THE THEATRE.

PARTNERSHIPS - Our celebration of the state Bicentennial, Finding Home: Indiana at 200, was featured as a part of the Spirit and Place Festival, helping Hoosiers explore the theme of “home”. - The IRT presented our inaugural Girls Night Out event in March 2017. A dozen local vendors provided professional and personal services to the women in attendance. MANY MENTORS The Many Mentors program provides deeply discounted tickets to mentoring pairs for designated performances throughout our season. This program seeks to expand our educational offerings, providing access to the theatre that encourages non-traditional learners and people in a variety of educational relationships to learn together at the theatre. The program reaches new audience members each season, and in 2016-2017, 122 tickets were obtained through the Many Mentors program. PAY WHAT YOU CAN The IRT offers one Pay What You Can night per calendar year, which reduces any real or perceived cost barriers for theatre attendance. We hosted a Pay What You Can night during Finding Home: Indiana at 200. Twenty-five audience members took advantage of the opportunity, paying as little as $4.00 per ticket.

10

AUDIENCE DISCUSSIONS During the 2016-2017 Season the IRT hosted more than 200 pre-show chats and post-show discussions with our audience members. The aim of these programs is to help encourage discussion and reflection about the topics and themes presented in our shows. Among some of the highlights: - The Historical Context of The Three Musketeers Jason Kelley, Director of IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute & Associate Professor of History in the IU School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, discussed the relationship between the setting of The Three Musketeers and the year it was published.

- Miranda & Perspectives on the Middle East Dr. Amira Mashhour, Senior Lecturer & Director of the Arabic Program in the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, and Dr. Tijen Demirel-Pegg, Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science/International Studies Program at IUPUI joined the IRT for post-show discussions after Miranda. Both shared their insight into and expertise on the Middle East as it related to Miranda. - The Art of Murder Mystery Father/daughter duo and local Indiana authors Tony Perona and Elizabeth Dombrosky shared how they write murder mysteries together during the season’s thrilling finale of Dial “M” for Murder.
