The big news this week is that beautiful downtown Carmel will shortly become the new home of the vastly popular Indianapolis Civic Theatre, (also known as the Booth Tarkington Civic Theatre of Indianapolis, Inc.). By the 2011-2012 season, the Carmel Regional Performing Arts Center will be the place to go to take in a performance by the Civic Theatre. Organizers of the theatrical group have signed a 100-year contract for the privilege, and in the year 2015, they will celebrate one century of offering consistently excellent community theatre entertainment.
The Performing Arts Center, still under construction, will become the premier focal point of Carmel arts, and draw much interest from other nearby Indianapolis suburbs, including Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield and Zionsville. The facility will also house the Civic Theatre’s rehearsal space and administrative offices. Well-situated in Old Town at the new Carmel’s City Center, the PAC is destined to become a jewel in the new Carmel Arts and Design District. It remains to be seen how the move will affect the Indianapolis performing arts scene, but it is an undisputed feather in the cap for fast-growing Carmel.
