About Hoosier Shakes

Who we are:
Hoosier Shakes is a non-profit repertory theatre company that specializes in producing outdoor theatre with simple staging practices, live music, and great quality performances. Our company hires professional and student artists who, in addition to producing two plays per season, engage in mentorship and artistic development centered around the theatre adventure.

Hoosier Shakes’ mission is to reveal the delight of Shakespeare’s theatre, language, and ideas by producing accessible, quality performances for the audiences of eastern Indiana and beyond. The main goal for our acting troupe is to provide exceptional and developmental experiences for both students and guest professionals.

We are very intentional about our Artistic, Community, Educational, and Economic development. To see a little bit more about how we do that, check out this blog on our website: http://hoosiershakes.com/the-nuts-bolts-of-hoosier-shakes/

Hoosier Shakes has a vision to inspire communities in central and eastern Indiana and beyond around the adventure of classical theatre.

The goals of Hoosier Shakes are:
  • To vitalize the performance of Shakespeare and other drama for the diverse communities of Marion and Grant County, Indiana by presenting inspiring, accessible, literate, experiential theatrical performances.
  • To foster community and fellowship around the enterprise of theatre in outdoor and other beautiful spaces.
  • To provide exceptional avenues for artists and audiences of all backgrounds to take part in recovering the joys of Shakespeare and live performance.
Hoosier Shakes is what could be termed an “Original Practices” theatre company. We embrace a number of early modern staging practices in our performances, including: Universal Lighting, A Surrounded Space, Simple Staging, Doubling, and Enlivened Costuming. 

How YOU can help us provide exceptional and accessible theatre to Grant County:
Every donation matters, big or small. Here's what your monthly pledge could bring to our company:

First Tier: $1/month
Just ONE DOLLAR per month brings in $12 a year. Seem small? This donation from just FIVE people could provide food stipends for an actor. Help our company members eat!

Second Tier: $5/month
Donating $5 per month equals to $60 a year from one patron. This helps give a company member a place to sleep!

Third Tier: $10/month
$120 per year is a significant help to our season! This could go towards repairs or other show costs.

Fourth Tier and above:
Anything over Fourth Tier helps us pay a fair wage to our actors, directors, and crew. Since we need these talented people to keep our company alive, this is the most important donation of all!
