About Us

Our Mission:

We are an inclusive non-profit theatre company committed to (1) creating a performance space for local artists, (2) providing opportunities for local actors & technicians, (3) offering quality entertainment to the community, & (4) promoting the education of the cultural arts in the region.   More info.
#2 Providing Opportunities
Southern Indiana has some of the most highly-celebrated K-12 arts programs in the country, yet there are very few opportunities for adults in SoIN to continue following their passions.
#3 Offering Entertainment
Theatreworks provides a full season of plays, musicals, & cabarets.  In addition, other groups use the spaces for their own artistic offerings.
#1 Creating a Performance Space
#4 Promoting Arts Ed.
Theatreworks has two spaces available for use by the community for artistic and professional endeavors.  We welcome local theatre groups, companies, community organizations, or private individuals to use the space as well.  FInd out more soon.
Theatreworks will offer a variety of classes (acting, singing, dancing, art, etc.) throughout the year.  Find out more about our arts education division, TheatreWorksEDU.
