I first came to the IRT in order to expose my daughters to theater. We came to The Turn of the Screw in 2003. During the post-show discussion one of the cast members was kind enough to answer a question from one of my daughters, and we have been season ticket holders ever since. The ability to engage with the art and the artists is one of the opportunities we have come to enjoy. Several years ago, we had the opportunity to go on a tour with Janet Allen before a performance of The Unexpected Guest. The tour was a pretty special experience. Most recently, I had the joy of seeing one of my daughter's in a walk-on role in A Christmas Carol, which is an opportunity available in the Celebrity Radio Show silent auction.
Indianapolis is a thriving community and the city should have a quality theater. This is one of the reasons that I became a donor to the IRT — to help ensure that Indianapolis would continue to have the opportunity to see quality stage productions. Live people like live performances (at least, I do) and we want to make sure that access to the arts is always available.
The IRT's commitment to community outreach — providing the opportunity for people to see professional theater that might not otherwise have that chance — is what sparked my desire to support the IRT.
