The Clowes experience is life long. With our Education Programming, students K-12 are able to experience live performance with their classmates – throughout their school career. For some of our students, this is their first experience with live performance in a theatre.We also program for the adult student as well…master classes and clinics provide an in-depth look into an artists craft, thus sharing the intricacies with the more advanced student. And almost all of our performances have a pre-performance talk – performance experts from across Indiana and disciplines are invited to speak - this is a great opportunity to learn more about and prepare for the main stage event.
Being on the beautiful campus of Butler University, patrons of the arts not only enjoy incredible live performance, but the aesthetic beauty of the campus, as well as the close proximity to downtown Indianapolis and the Broad Ripple area. Whether it’s modern dance, international music, opera or musicals, Clowes Memorial Hall proudly maintains the wants and wishes of when it was built in 1963.
Along with Clowes Presents and the Education program, Clowes also is the home of resident companies such as the Indianapolis Opera, JCFA’s Music at Butler and the Butler Ballet. Other great organizations such as Broadway in Indianapolis, Music For All (Bands of America) and Butler’s Visiting Writers Series, Diversity Lecture Series and Religion Seminars all use our facility.
Thanks for visiting ClowesHall.org and we hope to see you at our performances.
