Dirty Santa XC

It sounds dirty, and it very well should-because it’s XC racing in the winter! December is here, and Santa is definitely coming to town, but before he brings gifts and cheer-he is stopping by the “Dirty Santa” XC race to hand out some good ole’ butt whoopins! We can only hope for sloppy grounds, cool temps, and an epic time racing our way around Indy’s “backup” Championship course at Graham Park. This race highlights a 2k-looped course that is flat with some super fun natural banked “U” turns on both ends of the loop. We expect bumping and grinding the whole race, but those banked turns will be highlight reel areas for fans to heckle athletes and keep them honest with the pace. Yea there are lots of lame Santa runs that are on the roads in December…but there is only one Dirty Santa XC. Join us December 17, 2016 to both dish out and receive a good ole’ butt whoopin’ from other competitors, mother nature, heck maybe even a crazy race director!

Charlotte's Web

The Children’s Literature Association named this “the best American children’s book of the past two hundred years,” and Joseph Robinette, working with the advice of E.B. White, has created a play that captures this work in a thrilling and utterly practical theatrical presentation. The costumes and unit set may be quite simple—it’s the story and relationships that make the show—or they may be as colorful and elaborate as you wish. All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the “miracle” of her web in which she writes, “Some pig.” It’s the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give the audience an evening of enchantment.

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Sha la la Joseph you’re doing fine! You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time! One of the most enduring shows of all time, JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors. Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right hand man and reunites him with his family. The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”
