Our Supporters

What if you saw only half the play?

Ticket revenue covers just half of what it costs to produce world-class professional theatre at the Indiana Repertory Theatre. The IRT gratefully acknowledges the remarkable support we received from our generous and committed donors in 2016-2017 whose contributions ensured that the shows went on!

Repertory Society

The Repertory Society was created as a way to recognize and thank the donors giving most generously to the IRT. The benefits associated with Repertory Society membership both extend and enrich our patrons’ experiences at the IRT, giving members unparalleled access to our art and artists.

This list reflects the annual campaign gifts ($1,500+) contributed between July 1, 2016 - June 30, 2017.
