Spotlight Players Present First Production at Theater at the Fort

LAWRENCE — The newest theater in Indianapolis to open its doors has been closed to the public for more than 30 years. Renamed Theater at the Fort, the historic theater on Fort Harrison’s property in Lawrence, Indiana (located at 8920 Otis Ave.) was recently leased to Partnerships for Lawrence (PFL), a local nonprofit arts organization championing the arts for the city of Lawrence. PFL is partnering with a number of local nonprofits throughout the year to provide a variety of performing arts opportunities to best utilize the space and engage the community in the arts.
Kicking off the season is the delightful story of George Bailey and his guardian angel, Clarence, in Spotlight Player’s production of It’s a Wonderful Life! A Live Radio Play. Inspired by the classic American film, the live radio play is performed as a 1940s broadcast in front of a studio audience. The actors perform the dozens of characters in the show, as well as produce the sound effects.
Spotlight Players’ production opens the inaugural season at the Theater at the Fort. The show runs Dec. 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, and 13. Show times are 8:00 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and $10 for military personnel.
