Butler stands on the creative edge of the Indianapolis theater scene. Students in the Jordan College of Fine Arts Theatre Department are immersed in an ambitious, hands-on experiment of staging challenging new and classic works with a decidedly international reach. Butler regularly brings master artists from around the world to Indianapolis that engage the community with special presentations and performances. Graduates from this program can be seen as part of the larger Indianapolis performance art community: acting, dancing, producing, lighting, designing, directing and forming their own production companies. This year, Ida Nyoman Sedana, the Christel DeHaan Visiting International Theatre Artist, offers a Balinese spectacular in Bali Dream, inspired by William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and featuring Balinese Wayang Kulit (shadow puppets) and Balinese mask performance.

Dinner and a show is B&B’s raison d'être — as well as its outstanding gift shop. Located in College Park, the theater entertains more than 155,000 people annually. The buffet comes with the ticket. Food prepared by the in-house chef, a full-service bar and gourmet desserts are additional features to the main attraction: the stage. While classic hits and well-known favorites — primarily musicals — reign supreme here, specially produced student matinees make this a theater the entire family can enjoy. The venue operates year-round and nightly (except Mondays when special musical-acts can be seen).
