A message from

the Mayor:

Welcome to IndyFringe 2016!

Indianapolis is lucky to be home to

IndyFringe, which has become one of

the most exciting cultural events on the

calendar and enhances our worldwide

reputation for theatre and the arts!

With over 400 shows in just 11 days,

you can see an eclectic mix of new and

innovative performances, alongside more

traditional art forms. And don’t forget the

FREE outdoor tent where there’s something

for everyone.

During the summer festival, thousands

of people celebrate the arts in the Mass

Ave Arts & Theatre District of downtown.

With so many local restaurants, shops and

independent businesses on Mass Ave,

countless festival-goers have the chance to

explore all the cultural district has to offer.

A special thanks to the uniquely

Indianapolis collaborations and partnerships

that make IndyFringe possible. From the

local theatres hosting performances, to

the Firefighter’s Local Union 416 providing

the outdoor tent; from the neighbors

welcoming performers into their homes, to

the Mass Ave merchants serving all those

who stop by, we couldn’t do this without

the community.

Have a wonderful IndyFringe, and I hope

to see you on the Avenue or at a show!

Joe Hogsett

Mayor of Indianapolis, IN

A message from the

IndyFringe Board:

Twelve years!

We are so pleased to welcome

performers and audiences to the 12th

Annual IndyFringe Festival. From an idea

bantered about in a meeting room in 2001,

Indy Fringe now ranks as one of the oldest

fringe festivals in the United States and a

founding member of the US Fringe Festival

Association.

In Indianapolis, we are proud to offer

our special Midwest hospitality and our Indy

culture of acceptance and openness to the

performers who venture here from across

the U.S. and the world, and to our brave and

diverse audiences.

IndyFringe, with its festival and yearround

theatre offerings, has enhanced the

theatre arts.

Our development program has

nurtured many local performers and

performance groups.

IndyFringe and Mass Ave are uniquely

tied together as the Arts & Theatre District

– an eclectic mix of locally owned and

operated bars and restaurants, live theatre,

retail, boutiques, unique gifts, galleries and

spas adjacent to some of Indianapolis’ most

beautiful and historic neighborhoods.

The beauty of IndyFringe is there is

always something new and exciting on offer.

This year it’s Short Fringe – a new 50-seat

outdoor performance space located in the

Beer Tent.

Come on out and enjoy Fringe 2016!

Joanne Sanders

Board Chair,

The Indianapolis Theatre

Fringe Festival

A message from

BMO Harris Bank:

Diversity refers to the wide range of

differences that exist among people.

Inclusion is a different concept and refers

to proactive behaviors that make each

person feel welcome, safe, and a part of

the community.

Inclusive environments accept

differences and work to create a culture of

unique talents and outcomes. It’s amazing,

really, to see Fringe as a community that

works to achieve true inclusion.

The remarkable result you get from

combining diversity (the wide range of

differences amongst people) with inclusion

(proactive behaviors that make each person

feel welcome and safe) is innovation.

And, if Indianapolis is going to continue

on its path of being a remarkable livable

community, we need innovation.

BMO believes that diversity

plus inclusion results in innovation.

INDYFRINGE is one of the great examples

that diversity plus inclusion results in some

of the most innovative and best theater

and performances that the Indianapolis

community has ever seen. This is why

BMO’s sponsorship (now in our third year)

with Fringe is a perfect match. This is why

the community of BMO loves Indianapolis.

We are proud of our city and encourage

you all to get out there and enjoy the magic

of IndyFringe. There is truly something for

everyone and never a better opportunity

to experience live theatre and all that

Fringe has to offer.

Tim Massey

Indiana Regional President,

How to Fringe Like a Pro:

1. What’s on:

Already know what you want to see? Have no idea?

Flip through the brochure to find the right acts for

you! Set your line up. No one ever says they’ve seen

too many fringe shows.

2. Buy tickets:

You’ll need one for every show.

Purchase them in advance online, at our office,

or by phone, or buy them at the door half an hour

before the performance. (More info on pg 6.)

3. Find your theater:

Check the map and schedule on pages 16 and 17 so

you’re always on time. Latecomers won’t be seated.

4. Follow fringe: #indyfringe2016

5. Make fringeships

The best way to find the best shows?

ASK. Make fringeships talking about all you’ve seen

and sharing reviews at the beer tent.

6. Be curious, free spirited.

GO FRINGING!

You’ve never seen it all. Read the warnings but

venture beyond your comfort zone. Be Daring. Take

Risks. Fringe.

7. Meet performers at

the Beer Tent!

Indy Eleven

& IndyFringe

A partnership joining

pitch and performers

This incredible partnership between the North American Soccer

League’s Spring Champion, the Indy Eleven, and IndyFringe

produced the innovative Indy Eleven Theatre, now celebrating

its one-year anniversary.

And what an amazing year! The ADA-accessible, 70-seat

Indy Eleven Theatre hosted performances of the Indianapolis

Winter Magic Show and Diva Fest, one-act plays and touring

companies, most notably Recent Cutback’s “Hold On To Your

Butts,” fundraisers and corporate events. 58 events and shows

plus hundreds of rehearsals.

Our Indy Eleven friends pack the theatre with soccer fans on the

11th of every month, introducing a new and diverse audience to

the creative pulse of IndyFringe.

“Arts, sports, business and community organizations all need

to support one another in a world-class city,” said Indy Eleven

owner and CEO Ersal Ozdemir. “This unique partnership

allows us to align a wide range of audiences with very different

interests to new assets in our community.”

Buskers and Street Performances

A variety of performances take place around Mass Ave during the festival; remember to tip the

Jugglers and Hoopers. They come from all walks of life to bring fun and entertainment to our

streets. They want to share their art-form with the world on the oldest stage ever: the outside. In

the streets, on the sidewalks, and in the parks: this is where theatre began a long time ago, and

these Buskers are living out a tradition passed down through the ages.

History of Fringe Festivals

In 1947 eight theatre groups turned up – uninvited – to perform at

the newly-established and curated Edinburgh International Festival

in Scotland. Although not listed in the official program, the groups

performed anyway at venues they found themselves. The following

year a journalist coined the term “fringe festival” to describe these

non-juried shows that were turning up annually. The Edinburgh

Fringe is now the largest arts festival in the world with 2,871

shows. Today, there are more than 200 fringe festivals worldwide,

with 25 in the United States and 21 in Canada.

Join the public art staff of the Arts Council of Indianapolis for a fun insider’s look at public art on and

Tours start near the IndyFringe Beer Tent, 628 E. St. Clair Street. Meet at the Prometheus display (just

north of the Beer Tent) and hear about the forthcoming Promethean Walk sculpture. Tours will take

about 60-90 minutes. They will be held rain or shine, unless the rain is severe or active thunderstorms

are sighted. No reservations are required. FREE!

Promethean Fire Walk A GIFT OF FIRE

The Indianapolis Professional

Firefighters maintains one of the

largest public open spaces on the

Avenue. The facility serves as a

destination for public use and as

such encourages, supports and

assists the performing arts and

other cultural activities. During

the IndyFringe Festival, it hosts

the IndyFringe Beer Tent and

Short Fringe Theatre.

At its completion, the park will

showcase a major public art

piece, designed by noted Indiana

sculptor Dale Enochs, symbolizing

the role of firefighters who

daily honor the gift of fire in

service to the community. The

Promethean Walk Sculpture will

be a 125-foot-long assemblage of

incised limestone and internallyilluminated

layered metal forms.

The heroic sixteen-foot-tall

striding figure of Prometheus

holds an orb of fire, his mythical

gift to humankind. The gift of

fire represents both creativity –

one of the guiding principles of

IndyFringe - and, if not respected

and controlled, danger.

IndyFringe has proudly partnered

with the Indianapolis Professional

Firefighters for many years. We

are grateful for their unselfish

sharing of the new Firefighters

ArtPark. Please consider the

firefighters’ service to and

sacrifice for our community

as you enjoy this lovely

public space.

Other works of art include Point

Gathering Place with public art

(Visual and Mental Paradoxes

sculpture, 1999, Jerald Jacquard,

sculptor), the Walk of Distinction,

the Fallen Firefighters Memorial

and Phoenix Rising sculpture

(1996, Dale Enochs, sculptor)

and its plaza. The Historic Fire

Museum is open every weekend

so bring the kids for a free

experience.

Prism Project THEATRE IS FOR EVERYONE. WE MEAN IT.

Inclusiveness is a core value

of IndyFringe.

So we are especially delighted

to announce our newest, most

exciting partnership with Ball

State University’s Prism Project

in reaching out to children with

exceptionalities. This partnership

is funded with a generous grant

from Impact 100.

The Prism Project uses theatre

as the medium to train children

on the autism spectrum and with

other disabilities in the art of

social relationships.

This project will also provide

a welcome respite for families

stressed by the responsibilities

of caring for children with

exceptionalities. IndyFringe

will provide a drive-through,

one-stop, drop-off and pick-up

service for families, confident

their children are in the safe

hands of specialist staff in a fully

ADA accessible theatre complex.

This is unique to any program for

children with special needs.

Students will attend

weekend classes over

10 weeks this fall, culminating

in a final Holiday Performance.

Initially we estimate 20

students from Marion County

neighborhoods and adjacent

areas of Hamilton and Johnson

counties will attend. Given the

diversity of our downtown

neighborhoods, IndyFringe will

provide two scholarships.

The Beer Tent

Opening Night

Beer Tapping is Thursday, August 18 @ 5:30 pm.

INDYFRINGE HASN'T STARTED

UNTIL YOU'VE HAD YOUR FIRST BEER!

“It is tapped!!” At 5:30 pm on the first

day of the festival, we’ll tap the kegs at the Beer

Tent. From that moment on, the beer flows and

the IndyFringe Festival has officially begun. Show us

your ticket on opening day for a FREE BEER from 5:30

pm to 6 pm (opening day only). During the festival, beer

is served on weekdays between 5:30 pm and 11 pm, and

between 1 pm and 11 pm on weekends.

Address

748 Mass Ave, Corner of Mass Ave and St. Clair, Indianapolis

Hours

Weekdays 5:30 pm - 11 pm Weekends 1 pm - 11 pm

IndyFringe is live!

Mingle all week and weekend with fringe performers,

volunteers, staff and fellow fringers. Grab

a cold brew and step inside the tent.

Everyone is welcome. There is a special

area reserved for those under 21.

Two Hearted Ale

by Bell’s

Two Hearted Ale is defined by

its intense hop aroma and malt

balance. Hopped exclusively with

the Centennial hop varietal from the

Pacific Northwest, massive additions

in the kettle & again in the fermenter

lend their characteristic grapefruit &

pine resin aromas. A significant malt

body balances this hop presence;

together with the signature fruity

aromas of Bell’s house yeast, this leads

to a remarkably drinkable Americanstyle

India Pale Ale.

Champagne Velvet

Premium Pilsner

Champagne Velvet is the perfect

everyday beer for craft beer drinkers

and the perfect step-up for domestic

beer drinkers. It was first brewed in

1902 and is brewed today using that

same historical recipe. The result is a

clean, crisp, and light pilsner.

straw-pale color, this beer’s aroma has

hints of lactic acid bite dominated by

the smell of fresh apricot. The tartness

from the sour ale is balanced by the

distinct taste and sweetness of apricot,

creating a flavor reminiscent of sour

candy and fresh fruit. Exceptionally

refined and highly drinkable,

Damascene Apricot Sour is a delicious

exampe of what craft beer can be.

Dale’s Pale Ale

by Oskar Blues Brewery

America’s first hand-canned craft beer

delivers a hoppy nose, assertive-butbalanced

flavors of malts and hops

from start to finish. First canned

in 2002, our voluminously hopped

mutha is a hearty (6.5% ABV, 65

IBUs), critically acclaimed trailblazer

that has changed the way craft beer

fiends perceive canned beer. Dale’s

Pale Ale has been called “One of the

quintessential American hoppy pale

ales of our time”, was named the

“Top US Pale Ale” by the New York

Times and is the #1 selling Pale Ale in

coloRADo.

See dancers evolve into choreographers. Dance Kaleidoscope has

invited company dancers to create pieces to songs sung by their

favorite divas, but the stakes are high this year. After the festival,

some of the pieces will be selected to receive additional rehearsal

to be included in DK’s concert on February 9-12 at IRT. Come

support the dancers and let DK know which pieces you loved.

An eclectic and original program that best represents

the versatility of our organization beyond just classical

ballet. The program will include works in classical and

contemporary ballet, modern and tap. Choreography is by

ISB Artistic Director Victoria Lyras, Roberta Wong, Andrea

Bruce, William Patrick Dunne and Paul Vitali.

“Calder, The Musical” is based on the life of American artist

Alexander “Sandy” Calder, the inventor of the mobile. An

affectionate homage, the original musical vividly brings his

art to life and captures its joyfulness and whimsy through a

colorful theatrical experience of drama, music, dance, and

wanting more... promise!

of mind, Cody will show you the world through his eyes. An

autistic child transformed by magic. Sharing his story at the

fringe. Maybe you’ll find that his way of thinking isn’t all too

different from yours.

They say, “Each man is the architect of his own fate,” but

we don’t choose the constructors of our foundation and

framing. Can someone we never actually meet alter the plan,

redraw the lines, and forever change the design of our lives?

Tortillo! is getting a sequel! Hailed by critics as “a series of

disjointed dialogues held together by profanity,” the sequel to

the celebrated fringe comedy, promises to ask the important

questions like, “How is there cocaine in these f@*king chips…

again?” Join the returning cast for the sequel of a play that

proudly “relies on a lot of crass slapstick and dick jokes”.

This is not an act of protest, this is the unvarnished truth.

These are the lost – in Greece, in Europe, in America, in

Africa – these are children and husbands and sons and

daughters. These are the found, forever telling their stories.

This is Euripides. This is war. (A portion of all proceeds goes

to benefit Exodus Refugee Immigration in Indianapolis.)

A man tells the story of his first love through old, handwritten

notes that he and his girlfriend wrote to one

another. Together they discover love, experience the

joy of infatuation, they laugh and fight, share a first kiss,

learn to dance, and most importantly they forge an

unbreakable friendship.

What do Tootsie Pops, salt tablets, and bandages have in

common? Football! At least the kind of football played in the

Virginia mountains in 1964. A clueless nerd, his awkward pal,

and a sullen boy from across the tracks try out for the team

in this funny, heart-warming, coming-of-age play.

finally in Northport, New York.

Indianapolis, 1968. Three women – three generations of one

Jewish-American family – look back on the first decades

of the twentieth century, and struggle with the sins and

ghosts of the past. Racism, prejudice, anger and fear have

threatened to destroy them, but some bonds can never

be broken.

I was in a religious order – you know, poverty, celibacy,

obedience - I was good at one of them. It was the ‘60’s and

revolution was in the air. This is the story of how I entered a

Catholic and left a Buddhist anti-war peacenik with a FBI file.

members and classic pop rock and old school Hip Hop songs to

illustrate how he read his teacher's mind to floating a classmate

Harrison! is the satirical improvised hip-hop musical retelling

the history of Indiana’s rise from backwater territory to ass

backwards state. Set in the 1800’s, the powerful William

Henry Harrison, the young upstart Jonathan Jennings, and

conflicting ideas of what Indiana will become.

James Solomon Benn and company present a variety

show featuring pop, jazz, show tunes, gospel, poetry and

burlesque dance. This collection of Benn’s favorite music

and comic stories about growing up fat, black and gay in the

Bible belt, follows his alter-ego Little Butchie searching for

identity and self-love against the odds.

Four diverse women share a journey that forces them to

confront their worst nightmare. Trapped in a space that

is unfamiliar to all, they seem to be held hostage against

their will. Their attempts to escape from the place uncover

deeper secrets, and a more startling decision must then

be made.

The Spaghetti Western 3D is a riotous send-up of classic

western movies complete with notorious outlaws, quickdraw

gunslingers, and original frontier songs. Come join our

all-female cast in Javelina, Arizona, where the water rights to

one disputed well could unravel the very fabric of Western

civilization!

See Shakespeare the way it should be done, fast, furious and

ridiculous!! ‘Half Hour Hamlet’ smashes right through all the

traditional barriers and is presented in a hilarious, fun and

enjoyable way. “Patrick Hercamp’s enthralling fast-paced

solo performance had the audience shouting and laughing

with every scene.” – The Adelaidian

This family-friendly musical takes a light look at a dark time

for Indiana’s early inhabitants, when countless squirrels cut a

swath through the state. Hear first-hand accounts from both

sides, as well as some wild hear-say from a few questionable

characters who may be prone to exaggeration.

Kurt Vonnegut speaks from beyond the grave...sort of.

Reporting on the after-life through a series of near-death

experiences, he interviews Sir Isaac Newton, William

Shakespeare, Adolf Hitler and many more. By the grace of

the Vonnegut Trust, this funny, provocative show exists only

for the 2016 IndyFringe Festival.
