IRT— The Indiana Repertory Theatre's original production of "Finding Home," a multi-playwright examination of Indiana history, will be broadcast of WFYI in December. It marks the first time an IRT production has reached the small screen. 

— Also in TV news, the Indianapolis-set documentary "Night School" will have its national television broadcast premiere Sept. 12 on World Channel as part of its "America Reframed" series.

The Phoenix Theatre has released most of its 2017/18 lineup, the last season at its current home before moving to its being-built new stages. In addition to the already announced season-opening "Fun Home" and the latest version of its holiday sketch-and-music show, the theater will produce the wild Robert O'Hara play "Barbecue," the NFL brain-injury drama "Halftime with Don," and the bio-play-with-music "Nina Simone: Four Women." The Feb.-March slot has yet to be filled.

"Indiana Across the Land," the latest book from photographers Lee Mandrell and DeeDee Niderhouse-Mandrell, has been published by IU Press/Quarry Books. The duo boasts that the book does not contain a single corn field shot.

Conner Prairie will be adding a 7-acre corn maze later in the season. The attraction will carry an addition $5 charge from Sept. 23-Oct. 11 but will be free for those attending the popular Headless Horseman activities Oct. 12-29..
