Ulrike Steinert, Director of Marketing for the Indianapolis Civic Theatre, emailed me the following press release on August 10, 2009. I am ashamed to say that I put it away in a folder and forgot about it. I am posting it now (with the introductory message and media contact info removed), even though some of the shows are already over, for two reasons:
a) The librarian in me wants it here on Indy Theatre Habit so that when someone looks in the “Seasons Previews” category it will be there, and when someone puts this theatre’s name or any of these show names in the Search box, they will come up.
b) You might not have already heard about the Indy Civic’s 2009-2010 season.
As always, I recommend that when you get ready to actually go see one of these shows, you call the theatre or visit the theatre’s own website to confirm dates, times, and other details.
By the way, the photo above is from a group of photos that Ulrike sent me last year with her press release about Civic’s 2008 production of “The Wizard of Oz.” (Thanks, Ulrike!) Mark Fishbeck was the Lion, Rick Shinkle was the Tin Man, and Rory D. Shivers was the Scarecrow in that production. I am sorry that I did not have time to see it.
At a party not too long ago, someone connected with this year’s production said, “It’s going to be gayer than ever.”
“Good!” I said. I didn’t ask if by “gayer” he meant more stylish, more campy, or more light-hearted. I just made a mental note to put this year’s production on my calendar as soon as I got home. As you’ll see from the press release below, this year’s production of “The Wizard of Oz” opens at the Indianapolis Civic Theatre on Friday, December 11, 2009.
