TCU Amphitheater at White River State Park

Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

In collaboration with the project team, Theatre Projects helped design this dynamic new amphitheatre to host a wide range of touring acts. We developed robust rigging and lighting accommodation as well as flexible performance infrastructure that lets the venue support equipment-intensive multi-truck tours. The venue, which is operated by Live Nation, includes a permanent stage, two large LED video screens, permanent fixed and loose seating, VIP boxes, and versatile artist and crew amenity spaces. The amphitheatre can accommodate up to 2,700 seated guests and an additional 4,000 on a green sloping lawn. With exceptional production capability, comfortable audience accommodation, and excellent sightlines, the amphitheatre will serve as a major cultural attraction and an invaluable economic driver for the region for decades to come.
