The Tony-winning actress who created lead roles in "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "The Drowsy Chaperone," 'Little Women," "Young Frankenstein" and "Shrek: The Musical" will be performing in concert at the Palladium on Oct. 5. The event benefits Actors Theatre of Indiana, the professional theater company in residence at the Center for the Performing Arts.

 

 

While it's her first concert in the area, Sutton Foster—best known to non-theater audiences as the lead on ABC Family's series "Bunheads"—is no stranger to the area. Although not connected to Indiana by family or education. Foster has been very involved with Ball State University's theater program. Not only has she taught master clases there (see IBJ story here), but she also co-directed a production of "The Drowsy Chaperone" (reviewed here). More recently, she has been involved in the development of the Ball State-incubated musical "The Circus in Winter."

Concert tickets go on sale to the general public July 12.

Actors Theatre of Indiana begins its 2013/2014 season in September with "Always, Patsy Cline."

  • A must see
    Sutton Foster is a terrifically talented lady. Looking forward to seeing her. We had tickets to see her in Young Frankenstein, but we got the understudy. Fortunately, we were able to see her in Shrek. We also saw her brother in Million Dollar Quartet.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
