We are thrilled to announce our plans to partner with Black Acre Brewing Company in conjunction with the Irvington Development Organization!
EclecticPond Theatre Company, a proud member of the Irvington Business Association, intends to lease space within The Irvington Coal Factory, a 50,000 square-foot property that is to be the future home of restaurants, office space, artisan food production, and retail as well as additional opportunities for arts and entertainment. Approximately 2,800 square feet neighboring the Black Acre brewing facility would be available for ETC to develop into a new black-box theatre, allowing for the flexibility to continue our tradition of touring productions while maintaining a permanent home within the Irvington community that has helped make ETC what it is today. As a 501(c)(3) company and a member of the Shakespeare Theatre Association, EclecticPond is dedicated to providing imaginative and accessible classic theatre, and the Coal Factory presents an exciting opportunity to invigorate interest in theatre for a variety of audiences. We are thrilled to join with other businesses and organizations to offer Indianapolis a venue for community participation, involvement, and education.
The Coal Factory project is being funded in part by a $500,000 grant from the city and will be located just two blocks south of ETC’s first home, the Irvington Lodge. The development will rest along the Pennsy Trail between Audubon and Ritter.
As we continue to make plans, never fear! Our 2014-2015 season continues with 10x10xYou, the third iteration of our audience-favorite, fundraising show! This year the ten plays by Shakespeare that will be performed in (roughly!) ten minutes each have been determined by popular vote. Watch our website and “like” our Facebook page to catch all announcements about the cast. We are excited to announce that this year’s performances will be held at the Irvington United Methodist Church, 30 N Audubon Rd, Indianapolis.
