Summit Performance Indianapolis produces top quality theatre that explores the lives and experiences of women.


Summit Performance Indianapolis will be a pillar of quality entertainment and a cultural hub in Indianapolis.  Summit will offer thoughtful and engaging performances and readings specifically chosen to inspire discussion and dialogue amongst our audience and community. These conversations will be curated around our artistic offerings and facilitated through moderated post-show discussions, guest speakers, and town hall sessions. Summit will mindfully produce work that creates opportunities for women, through producing the work of female playwrights, employing a high percentage of female actors, directors, designers, artisans, and staff, and creating for our audiences art that spotlights the experiences of women in a continual exploration of the human condition.
