Thank You!

Taming of the Shrew 2013 Thank you to all who supported HART's 2013 production of The Taming of the Shrew!

Although the production may seem a distant memory...our HART hearts are still filled with joy for the opportunity to share quality theatre with our audiences in beautiful downtown Indianapolis.

A special thank you to all of our individual donors, our corporate supporters and to our foundation supporters for all you are doing to make free Shakespeare in downtown Indy one of our city's yearly cultural offerings.

Deep appreciation goes to the Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF Affiliate; Lilly Endowment; and, the Christel DeHaan Family Foundation in honor of the children and families of Christel House.

"A rose by any other name..."

shakespeare canal HART’s Shakespeare series has been known as "Shakespeare on the Canal"…but should we find another name?

We have been known as Shakespeare on the Canal over these past years.... but many Indy residents think of the canal as being a bit further the Indiana State Museum (with their fun Summer Sounds Concert Series), the Eiteljorg Museum (with the lovely Christel DeHaan Family Terrace overlooking the water) and the Indiana Historical Society (which hosts those awesome Concerts on the Canal!)

Where exactly are WE located?

HART's outdoor Shakespeare productions happen in White River State Park with the beautiful White River as our backdrop. Our lovely amphitheater is nestled between the bridge that leads to the Indianapolis Zoo on one side and the canal located in front of the NCAA on the other side. IUPUI's NIFS is also close by, and White River State Park's Celebration Plaza is where you'll find our food trucks plus beer and wine when we produce The Taming of the Shrew this summer on Aug 9th and 10th!

HART’s Shakespeare on the Canal has a nice ring to it….but should we change it to something more accurate??
