Chapter 17: Crossroads Repertory Theatre: a model of a university-based theater
Using the model of Crossroads Repertory Theatre in Terre Haute, Indiana and its affiliation with Indiana State University, this chapter presents the role of a university-based professional theater in serving multiple communities. In the author’s 13 years as artistic director, he pursued policies that took into account the needs of the surrounding communities, always working to ensure that addressing the needs of one did not alienate or neglect another. This led to a constant balancing that required continuous vigilance and self-evaluation from year to year. This chapter draws on the author’s experience with Crossroads Repertory Theatre and its discovered value as a case study in balance in providing a rich cultural and intellectual environment for multiple communities simultaneously, without sacrificing financial stability and efficiency.
