Our Theatres: Performance, Rehearsal, Rentals

Performances to Parties, Festivals to Feasts, Magic to Meetings

Located in the free-spirited and vibrant Mass Ave district, the two theatres, the l00-seat Basile and the 70-seat, “black box” IndyEleven, serve multiple purposes for both performing artists and the community at large.

The District Theatre on Mass Ave has two theatres, the 60 seat Cabaret Theatre and the 130 seat Christel De Haan mainstage.  

SEATING IS GENERALLY UNRESERVED. There may be exceptions to this rule with reserved seats for ADA audience and ticketed events and rentals.

Late admittance is not guaranteed. No refunds or exchanges. It is a condition of entry that ticket holders agree to not photograph, film, record or stream the show. Offenders will be removed and not permitted re-entry. 

Please note that tickets are non transferable. The credit card used for payment or photo ID must be shown at venue to confirm collection. 

Performances & Rehearsals

During the IndyFringe Festival, our theatres burst with activity, shows resonating across their stages, the Trailhead lobby bustling with theatre-goers, their bars overflowing.   

The energy doesn’t end there. During the rest of the year, our theatres offer year-round live performances and low-cost rehearsal spaces in a city with very few such amenities.

Since 2008, when the IndyFringe began year-round programming, hundreds of productions and tens of thousands of audience members have passed through our doors.

Unique Rental Spaces

These unique, flexible and ADA-accessible spaces can also accommodate a variety of diverse activities. The theatres have hosted events ranging from corporate meetings to team-building, weddings to birthdays, art exhibitions to fundraisers. We have even provided private cabaret, theatre and specialty shows for a variety of functions.

Beer or Wine?

Additional features include sophisticated lighting, sound systems and a beer/wine license applicable to all spaces.
