"Village Voices: Notes from the Griot”
Poetry, visual arts, music, and dance are woven together into a narrative celebrating African-American history. Created by Joshua A. Thompson with the involvement of many local performers, it’s part the Unity Project, a collaborative effort whose partners include the JCC and the Indianapolis Urban League. Feb 22 JCC
"Sonnets and Slow Jams"
Valentine’s Day may be gone and the day-after discount candy all purchased. But romance--and lack of it--is still subject to stage creativity. Witness this production, from Eclectic Pond pairing sonnets and songs and a lineup of some of Indy’s quirkiest performers including Paige Scott, Katie Angel, and Jason Adams. Feb. 22 White Rabbit Cabaret
"The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse”
The Indiana Repertory Theatre’s annual production for young audience puts its professional resources and onstage talent into the telling of this tale of a rural rodent exploring new territory with his city-fied cousin. Expect “storytelling seating”--meaning the little ones, and some adults, may find themselves parked on the floor. Feb. 20-March 30 Indiana Repertory Theatre
