Will you be able to say….
“I was there when it all began”?
In honor of our 15th season, Actors Theatre of Indiana is launching a new program committed to nurturing new plays and playwrights, the ATI Theatre LAB Series. Chosen from over 20 submissions, 3 plays and playwrights will enjoy an intensive weekend of work shopping, discussion, and development with a cast of professional actors and directors in a creative laboratory setting. Each play will have a reading and a talk-back session with Actors Theatre of Indiana audiences, staff, cast and playwright. ATI Subscribers will be given the opportunity to purchase tickets at a reduced rate to attend these readings of new works!
