Our Mission

We seek your experience, your advice, your participation and your support. Call the box office (317) 926-6630 to be a part of it all.

About The Encore Association

The Encore Association was established in 1970 with a mission of promoting excellence in all aspects of theatrical production. This is accomplished by sponsoring educational activities pertaining to the theatre arts, the presentation of annual awards, and similar endeavors.

The Encore Association is comprised solely of nonprofessional theatre groups in which no one is paid, which operate on a nonprofit basis, offer open auditions, and admission to the general public. The Encore Association is governed by a board of directors comprised of representatives of each participating theatre. The board of directors hosts an annual awards ceremony in the fall recognizing excellence from the previous theatrical season. These awards are decided by a committee of judges who apply, are accepted by the board, view productions, and select nominees. The judges then announce the winners at the annual awards ceremony.

The Encore Association is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. It provides for the exchange of ideas and communication between groups and individuals interested in furthering community theatre.
