Welcome to ComedySportz Indianapolis! ComedySportz is the longest running show in Indianapolis, now in its 17th year! We are NOT comedy about sports…It’s improvisational comedy played as a sport! If you love “Whose Line Is It Anyway?, ” then you’ll love ComedySportz!
As part of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir's annual "Sacred Masterworks" performance series, this melding of vibrant voices and delicately vibrating strings will pay tribute to one of J.S. Bach's greatest achievements. Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, tenor Brian Stucki, and bass-baritone Derrick Parker will combine throaty forces to ring out Bach's epic mass, which has been likened to other famous artists' opuses including Michelangelo's fresco at the Sistine Chapel and da Vinci's Mona Lisa. The symphony orchestra's mix of harmonious winds, quivering strings, and rhythmically tapped percussion instruments will serve as a sonorous backdrop to resonant vocals as they herald the iconic work to waiting audience eardrums in a 2-hour show with a 20-minute intermission.
Beef and Boards Dinner Theatre—soon to kick off their 40th season—serve up a sumptuous buffet before each performance to infuse audiences with enough energy for aisle-rolling. Specializing in classic farces, Broadway musicals, and the occasional spot of children’s theater, the troupe has carried out rollicking performances of Hello Dolly, Annie Get Your Gun, Legally Blonde, and Winnie the Pooh. Every year at yuletide the performers roll out their Christmas special, and every Arbor Day features an all-tree performance of Grease.
Snappy songs have infiltrated more than just the opening credits of primetime television programs in recent years. The popular series Glee, in particular, has spearheaded the airtime assault of harmonious vocals and tongue-in-cheek performances, which hark back to a bygone era of big-band leaders such as Fred Waring, also known as The Man Who Taught America to Sing. This May, as the final concert of its 40th season, Encore Vocal Arts' chamber choir teams up with Lawrence Central High School’s show choir, The Central Sound, for an evening of timeless tunes. The program’s ambition, as Encore’s artistic director Chris Ludwa explains, is to “connect today’s show choir generation with their musical roots.”
