ABOUT THIS THEATRE

Description
For 40 years, Clowes Memorial Hall has remained one of the Midwest's premiere performing arts facilities. Keeping in line with our mission of lifelong learning in and through the arts, Clowes programs a performing arts series, "Clowes Presents," each year, focusing on internationally, artistically and culturally diverse live performance. Our series is eclectic and unique to the Clowes stage. The Clowes experience is life long. With our Education Programming, students K-12 are able to experience live performance with their classmates - throughout their school career. For some of our students, this is their first experience with live performance in a theatre. We also program for the adult student as well...master classes and clinics provide an in-depth look into an artists craft, thus sharing the intricacies with the more advanced student. And almost all of our performances have a pre-performance talk - performance experts from across Indiana and disciplines are invited to speak - this is a great opportunity to learn more about and prepare for the main stage event. Being on the beautiful campus of Butler University, patrons of the arts not only enjoy incredible live performance, but the aesthetic beauty of the campus, as well as the close proximity to downtown Indianapolis and the Broad Ripple area. Whether it's modern dance, international music, opera or musicals, Clowes Memorial Hall proudly maintains the wants and wishes of when it was built in 1963. Along with "Clowes Presents" and the Education program, Clowes also is the home of resident companies such as the Indianapolis Opera, JCFA's Music at Butler and the Butler Ballet. Other great organizations such as Broadway Across America - Indianapolis, Bands of America and Butler's Visiting Writers Series and Religion Seminars all use our building. For more information on the other companies performing at Clowes, click on Resident Companies and check out their web sites. You can also call 317.940.9697 for additional information on contacting the other companies.
