—Indiana Repertory Theatre has long been a theater adept at attracting student groups. But now it’s aiming even younger by adding its first children’s productions to its lineup. In Nov. it launches its Exploring Stages series with “The Velveteen Rabbit” aimed at ages 3-8. A positive sign: The adaptation is by IRT playwright-in-residence James Still.

—For those who like to mark their calendars early, the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir has commissioned a new oratorio from composer Mohammed Fairouz to have its world premiere in Indy in April of 2015. With a libretto by actress/writer Najla Said, Fairouz’s “Oratorio on the Psalms of David” will be performed with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and will require a chorus, children’s choir and solists.

—The climactic volume of Ben H. Winters’ apocalyptic “The Last Policeman” series is set for a mid-July release from Quirk Books. My review of the Butler University faculty member’s latest will be posted around that time (I’m reading it now). In the meantime, catch up on the first two books, which I reviewed here.

—The Indianapolis Art Center has added a Collaborations series to its summer offerings, featuring pop-up ArtsPark performances and interactive story gatherings from NoExit Performance, Indy Reads Books, and Know No Stranger.

— “The Beverly Hillbillies: The Musical” will have its world premiere at Theatre at the Center in Munster. Historians may look back on this as the end of theater as we know it.

  1. Yes sir keep cashing those 300K a year checks direct to IMS, while millions disappear from the teams like Rahal's. Guess there wasn't enough ka- ching going around to keep Sarah Fisher in business without their "merger". LOL._____.Meanwhile back in Realville the series with the "best racing in the world" drew what appeared to be about 5000 live spectators ( and probably 1500 of those Target "freebies", and was beaten in the ratings by a series that reportedly consists of "parades" and aired while most people are still sleeping. That will generate those big ka-chings for sure. :-). But, hey, as long as the Speedway gets the cash who gives a damn about the teams?

  3. If I could actually get the prices...I would do this on my own. We need laws that force provides to publish the costs they will charge. Everyone else gives you the price in advance...except hospitals.

  4. I was under the impression that fencing is not allowed on a front yard and that on a corner, both sides are considered "front" yards, therefore can't be fenced without a variance. Also impedes the visibility for drivers at the intersection. Am I understanding this correctly? Might be why a fence was not included in the plans and a request for a variance will have to be made?.

  5. I was a big fan of Cowards and Carrots, which I got a chance to see at the show. It's currently on Kickstarter, but the designer also put out What's He Building in There last year, which got a fair amount of buzz.
