ECLIPSE, the Emerging Artists program of Summer Stock Stage
In 2017, Eclipse was created as a young professional component of Summer Stock Stage. Eclipse produces contemporary musical theater in downtown Indianapolis featuring SSS program alumni and other emerging artists. In addition to supporting young adult performers, Eclipse provides opportunities for professional working artists to practice their craft in a dynamic and collaborative environment.
Audiences in central Indiana benefit from the opportunity to see some of the actors they’ve watched grow up at Summer Stock Stage in compelling productions. Show selection focuses on diverse material not often produced locally, giving artists and actors a new outlet to work on challenging material and theatergoers the opportunity to see new and emerging works as well as revisit favorites. Goals include bringing SSS actors back to central Indiana, providing innovative work for artists, and filling a gap in the Indianapolis theater scene.
