Actors will soon take the stage for the final show of the current Actors Theatre of Indiana season.

“Working the Musical” opens on April 29 and runs through May 22 at the Studio Theater in Carmel.

Lysa Fox, “Working the Musical” director and Lillie Thomas, “Working the Musical” performer joined us live on Monday to share everything you need to know about the upcoming show and to give a preview with their performance of, “It’s an Art.”

Show Description:


From the book by Studs Terkel | Adapted by Steph 

This examination of 26 people from all walks of life proves that it’s more than just a job for the average working American. Based on Studs Terkel’s best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted: the schoolteacher, the phone operator, the waitress, the millworker, the mason and the housewife, just to name a few. Nominated for six Tony Awards, this classic has been updated for a modern age, featuring new songs by Tony Award-winning Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as favorites by Stephen Schwartz, Craig Carnelia and James Taylor.

The Actors Theatre of Indiana has two new shows that you don’t want to miss.

Tomorrow, October 28,  at Feinstein’s Cabaret. You can see Michele McConnell performing “Lush Life: A Tribute to Linda Ronstadt.” Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with showtime at 7:30 pm.


 “Lush Life: Celebrating the music of Linda Ronstadt” brings Hoosier native Michele McConnell home from NYC to share some of her favorite selections of this living legend, including some specific influences on her own life and career! 

Michele’s varied career has led her around the world performing in a variety of venues.  From luxury cruise ship stages around the globe, to giant Symphony halls, to NYC intimate cabarets, as well as her record-breaking Broadway run for over six years as the diva Carlotta in The Phantom of the Opera, Michele’s musical influences and inspirations are vast but connected by the same thread of loving the way that music unites and inspires us. 

Hailed by NY1 news as “Divinely grandiose”, and by Opera News as an “exuberant comedienne” graced with a “megawatt smile”,  join Michele for this entertaining journey through an evening of Linda Ronstadt music that’s sure to have something for everyone! 

Then from October 29 – November 7 you can see, “Lombardi: A New American Play.”


This Tony Nominated Broadway play follows Coach Vince Lombardi of the Green Bay Packers through a week in the 1965 NFL season as he attempts to lead his team to the championship. Although football’s Super Bowl trophy is named for him, few know the real story of Lombardi the man, his inspirations, his passions and ability to drive people to achieve what they never thought possible. Sport produces great human drama and there is no greater sports icon to bring to theatrical life than Hall of Fame Coach Vince Lombardi. “Winning isn’t everything, but the will to win is everything.”

You can join the cast of “Lombardi” along with special guest Mark Herrmann, Carmel High School Native, Purdue Alumi, and Indianapolis Colts Quarterback on November 7th to talk football directly after the 2:00pm show!

“As Always… Patsy Cline” is coming to the Studio Theater at the Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel. The show will run from September 10 to October 3.

Today we were joined by Judy Fitzgerald who sang a beautiful rendition of Patsy Cline’s “Lovesick blues.” Cindy Collins, co-founder and associate director for Actors Theatre of Indiana also joined us as the character Louise and to tell us what we need to know about the show.

This true tale of friendship is told through the letters of Louise Segar, a devoted fan who befriended Patsy Cline at a Texas honky-tonk. It was the kind of relationship that many fans would love to have with their heroes. Featuring Cline’s unforgettable hits, this funny and touching tribute celebrates the life and career of the legendary singer who died tragically in a plane crash. “I Fall to Pieces,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Walking After Midnight” are just a few of the 27 featured songs. This musical offers fans who remember Cline a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what she meant to the Country Music Industry and why she was such a Super Star. You’d be “Crazy” to miss it!’

About “Alabama Story”:

In 1959, the true story of a librarian persecuted in the Deep South captured the attention of the world.  In 2019, Actors Theatre of Indiana, the Professional Resident Theatre Company at The Center for the Performing Arts, gave the Indiana premiere of the play “Alabama Story,” inspired by this true story of reading, race and reconciliation set in the time of Dr. King’s residency at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery. Playwright Kenneth Jones has capsulized the entire play in a presentation designed especially for tonight, featuring members of the original cast – Cynthia Collins, Don Farrell, Paul Tavianini, Meaghan Looney and newcomer, Daniel Martin.

To view the play in its entirety, visit January 18 through February 14 where you can stream this powerful piece of theater and take a brief glimpse into the deep south of the imagination.
