October 2019 Featured Partner Events

Each month, we gather information about our Featured Partners  and their upcoming events in one spot so that it’s easy for you to see what’s coming up.  That spot is right here!

Wait Until Dark
Sept. 27-Oct. 13, Fri. & Sat. at 8 p.m., Sun. at 2 p.m.
Belfry Theatre, 10690 Greenfield Ave, Noblesville
$17 adults, $14 ages 0-12 & 65-100
A sinister con man, Roat, and two ex-convicts, Mike and Carlino, are about to meet their match. They have traced the location of a mysterious doll, which they are much interested in, to the Greenwich Village apartment of Sam Hendrix and his blind wife, Susy. Sam had apparently been persuaded by a strange woman to transport the doll across the Canadian border, not knowing that sewn inside were several grams of heroin. When the woman is murdered, the situation becomes more urgent. The con man and his ex-convicts, through a cleverly constructed deception, convince Susy that the police have implicated Sam in the woman’s murder, and the doll, which she believes is the key to his innocence, is evidence. She refuses to reveal its location, and with the help of a young neighbor, figures out she is the victim of a bizarre charade. But when Roat kills his associates, a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues between the two. Susy knows the only way to play fair is by her rules, so when darkness falls she turns off all the lights leaving both of them to maneuver in the dark until the game ends. A Broadway hit, this masterfully constructed thriller moves from one moment of suspense to another as it builds toward an electrifying, breath-stopping final scene. Directed by Jen Otterman, By Frederick Knott

Three years ago, Fred built himself an art studio, and from that point forward, his creativity and exploration of new styles, mediums, and ideas has flourished. He seeks to capture the essence of places, people, and experiences through his work, and hopes to convey a sense of ‘being there’ through his creative lens. Green brings a collection of his most celebrated works to the Meyer-Najem gallery this fall. Don’t miss Frederick J. Green’s showcase – this October to December 2019 at the Meyer-Najem Gallery in Fishers!
