Unique and significant gift extends relationship to 30 consecutive years
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Repertory Theatre (IRT) today announced a seven-year sponsorship agreement extension with OneAmerica® through the 2024-2025 season, resulting in a commitment of 30 consecutive years.
The IRT celebrates this momentous gift, which supports the Theatre’s annual and long-term sustainability, during a year in which OneAmerica is celebrating its 140th anniversary—a symbol that salutes both the company’s longevity within the Indianapolis community and its enduring commitment to its partners.
“The IRT is an integral arts and cultural institution in central Indiana, and it’s imperative that we are able to partner with leaders in the community who value and share our mission,” said Suzanne Sweeney, IRT Managing Director. “OneAmerica does an incredible job of creatively engaging their employees and maximizing the partner benefits we are able to provide. We know that through this partnership our work will go far beyond the IRT stages.”
The season sponsorship began in 1995, and since that time the financial leader has pledged 30 years of support, an act that is rare in the arts industry.
“For 140 years, OneAmerica has been committed to serving our customers and our community,” said Scott Davison, OneAmerica Chairman, President and CEO. “The IRT is a key piece of Indianapolis’ vibrancy. We are proud of our long history working together and look forward to what the future of the IRT will bring.”
“The OneAmerica Mainstage is a place where live theatre can captivate audiences, and provide understanding in to a world patrons have yet to experience,” said Janet Allen, IRT Executive Artistic Director. “We look forward to many more seasons where we can continue doing what we do best, with the support of great partners like OneAmerica.”
