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.
