Pros and Cons of Theater Spaces in Indianapolis

There are a few things to consider before renting theater space in Indianapolis. Below are some pros and cons to keep in mind when looking for a theater venue.


  • Indy exudes a big small-town charm, and hosting a theatrical production in the city helps amp up the vibe.

  • Downtown Indianapolis is more or less the city’s center for performing arts. You’ll find a concentration of suitable theater spaces in the area.

  • With four interstates passing through the city and a Skywalk system that links some of the major buildings; Indy is a fairly easy place to navigate.


  • The dreary winter weather makes movements a challenge, and it is best to settle for an easily accessible theater location that also addresses the freezing conditions.

  • While public buses operate around the city, they are not as reliable. Handle the transport arrangements for your performers if you settle for a theater space that might be out of the way.

  • The city’s 2.5 million residents are always on the move at certain points of the day, and the result is heavy traffic. Keep it in mind when searching for a theater venue.

Tips on How to Organize Theater Spaces in Indianapolis

Indy's theater community is booming, which means more opportunities are available for theater lovers to enjoy shows in various spaces around the city. However, knowing how to organize your theater space when starting can also be a bit challenging. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

  • Start by measuring the width and length of your stage: This will give you an idea of how much space you have to work with and what kind of layout will best suit your needs.

  • Decide what kind of seating you want: Will you have fixed rows of seats, or will you allow audiences to move around? How many seats do you want in each row?

  • Consider your backstage area: You'll need a holding area, changing rooms, and space for costumes, props, and set pieces. Make sure there's plenty of room for actors to move around and get into character before they go on stage.

  • Think about lighting and sound: It is crucial that the audience see and hear the action on stage. Pay attention to the placement of the light and how you can best amplify the sound of voices and music.

  • Don't forget about access for people with disabilities: Make sure there's an accessible entrance and exit that provides a clear path for wheelchair users.
