Summer Stock Stage announces Eclipse program for emerging artists

Indianapolis, IN- Summer Stock Stage’s newest program  – ECLIPSE – will debut in 2017.  ECLIPSE will serve as a professional extension of Summer Stock Stage, producing musicals with SSS alumni performers in paid positions.  This allows SSS to bridge the experience of performers as they transition from students to theater professionals.

ECLIPSE will offer challenging musical theater productions providing central Indiana with edgy and emerging work and artists.  Eclipse is an outgrowth of Summer Stock Stage’s main stage program which focuses on high school performers ages 13-19.  Eclipse will feature performers ages 19-25.

The first Summer Stock Stage ECLIPSE production will be Spring Awakening, June 1-18, 2017.  Performances will be at the Indy Eleven/Indy Fringe Theater 719 E. St. Clair in the Mass Avenue district of Indianapolis.  Details on auditions and tickets will be available in April 2017.
