More on Tarkington launch: David Hyde Pierce + free DK, more

Whether you've got coin or not, you can experience the arts during the opening days of the Tarkington Theater at the Center for the Performing Arts.

The big ticket event, as was previously announced, features Tony-winner David Hyde Pierce (that's Niles Crane to couch potatoes) and, of course, Michael Feinstein. Joining them will be dancers from American Ballet Theatre and 2009 Great American Songbook competition winner Julia Bonnett (a nice touch).

If the $150 minimum for the gala is out of your range, consider one of these free Tarkington events:

July 15: Dance Kaleidoscope.

July 19: Jazz with Anita Hall and Everett Greene.

July 21: The Tarkington's dance company in residence Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre.

July 26: Heartland Truly Moving Pictures film screening (Title TBA).

July 28: International Violin Competition of Indianapolis performance.

July 30: Kids Day featuring Iibada Dance Company, Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre, and more.

July 31; Open House with Duke Tumatoe, Indiana University Summer Concert Band and theater companies in residence Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre and Actors Theatre of Indiana.
