The IRT’s history has been enacted in two historic downtown theatres. The Athenaeum Turners Building housed the company’s first eight seasons. Since 1980 the IRT has occupied the 1927 Indiana Theatre, which was renovated to contain three performance spaces (Mainstage, Upperstage and Cabaret) and work spaces, reviving this historic downtown entertainment site. The company has recently renovated the Upperstage, the Cabaret, the Grand Lobby, and the OneAmerica Stage, completing a five-year project to upgrade the IRT’s audience support services as well as its theatrical production equipment. In 2009, the IRT completed renovations of its lobby and lower floor through its StreetFront Project, supported by Lilly Endowment.
