“How can I get involved?” We ask this question a little differently around Broadway. We want to know how we can get involved with you.  What do you care about, or give yourself to, in this world? Can we share it with others? Are there ways others can be involved with you?


Pub Theology is currently meeting virtually on Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. with a discussion on Politics & Faith hosted by Rev. Alicia Baker. To receive information on how to join the discussion, please e-mail Karen McAleavey at and asked to be added to Broadway’s e-mail distribution list.


The Heaton Huddle book group meets every Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in the home of one of Broadway’s members.

First Fridays meets on the first Friday of each month at George’s Neighborhood Grill (6935 Lake Plaza Drive, Indianapolis, IN 46220). This is a great opportunity to catch up with friends, meet new folks, and enjoy good food. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. and orders dinner at 7:00 p.m.


If you would like to be with other ladies of Broadway just to visit, laugh, and have lunch, put a mark on your calendar for the third Tuesday of each month. The group meets at Good Morning Mama’s (1001 E. 54th St., Indianapolis, IN 46220) for food and fellowship. All are welcome!


Every Wednesday evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m, the Indiana Playwrights Circle hosts Open Scene Nights downstairs in Backstage at Broadway. Up to six playwrights can bring in up to ten pages of an original script each session to hear them read by local actors, followed by a facilitated discussion and feedback. All amateur and seasoned playwrights are welcome!

Scholarships are also available for interested members. There is no cost to observe and participate in the group discussion, and all are welcome to listen and discuss each week’s new works, whether or not you sign up to have your own pages read. This open community is a great space to learn more about theater and the art of storytelling. For more information, please contact Ashley Chase Elliott at (812) 454-4014 or We hope to see you there!
