About Indiana Repertory Theatre (IRT)
The cream of the crop for Indianapolis theater, the IRT presents the gamut — from classics to new, specially commissioned works. Plays are staged on either the upper or lower stages, which give audiences varying degrees of intimacy, yet always outstanding, powerful performances. Productions have a well-deserved reputation for superb lighting and set design, plus top theater artists (actors, directors, etc.) are drawn from all over the country. Special performances are regularly scheduled for student groups through the Discovery Series, which is also open to general audiences. The IRT also offers theater classes for adults and children.
