Broad Ripple High School

’Tis the season for high school musicals, but this isn’t exactly that. Let me explain.

Butler University’s Lyric Theatre wanted to stage Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods,” (which deals with big issues of responsibility, guilt, infidelity, faith and retribution, all in the guise of a fairy-tale mash-up). With thoughts of a creative collaboration, Artistic Director Nancy Davis Booth decided to take the show to Broad Ripple High School. The arrangement: Butler students will perform for all of the shows except the Saturday matinee, when they will turn the stage over to the high schoolers. Meanwhile, the Broad Ripple teens will earn valuable experience taking care of lighting and backstage crew work.

The upside? Students at IPS’ arts magnet school get a taste of college-level work, the Butler students get increased resources (and a larger potential audience), and ticket-buyers, we hope, get a strong production of an outstanding musical. For details, click here.

  1. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

  5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters." http://www.urbanophile.com/2014/05/26/checking-in-on-columbus/
