Overview of Season


The Indiana Repertory Theatre staff and Board have been spiritedly reimagining our 2020-2021 Season and are thrilled to produce a virtual season that will celebrate the resiliency of our art and safely accommodate our staff, actors, and patrons.

Our Virtual 6-play season will open in early December with This Wonderful Life. In partnership with WFYI, each of our productions will be filmed and shared through streaming technology.

We will be working diligently to open our doors in the second half of the season and our season ticket holders will have the first option to come back in-person if our live performance schedule resumes.
 

What is a virtual season?

IRT will produce live-captured performances that you can virtually stream on your preferred device. It’s easy. We promise!
 

What titles are you producing this season?

Check back soon for a full list of titles.

This Wonderful Life
by Steve Murray
On sale now
Streaming available December 1 – January 3


hilarious and heartwarming 

Frank Capra’s iconic holiday movie It’s a Wonderful Life provides the springboard for a spirited and heartwarming performance as a man in love with the film enacts and reacts to its classic characters and content. Indy-based actor Rob Johansen takes on this witty tour de force as he recreates more than 30 characters at madcap speed. In this time-honored story, it’s Christmas Eve and a distraught George Bailey is sure he has failed his family and community. Clarence, an angel-in-waiting, helps George see how vital a role he’s played in the world and ultimately shares the effect that one hardworking man's life has on the people around him. Celebrate the season with theatrical magic, joyfully reimagined for our times.

Tuesdays with Morrie
by Jeffrey Hatcher & Mitch Albom
based on the book by Mitch Albom
On sale now
Streaming available February 2 – February 21 


life’s greatest lesson

Morrie was Mitch’s sociology professor, but he was also his mentor, his advisor, his life coach. Now Mitch is a busy sportswriter with a frantic schedule and a troubled marriage, and Morrie is dying. One visit turns into a weekly pilgrimage and a final course in the meaning of life. The beloved book comes to life in this life-affirming play, full of compassion, humor, and hope.
