About the Fonseca Theatre
The Fonseca Theatre Company exists to give voice to and celebrate the minority communities of Indianapolis through the prism of purposeful theater and civic engagement. The goal is to bring about social justice through programs which educate, illuminate, and ignite conversations on equity, diversity, and inclusion. We are a minority-majority collective of artists who will give voice to the disenfranchised in our community. The sharing of culture is essential to our nation’s health, and we will focus on work by and/or about minority artists to bring together the city’s growing minority communities. The Fonseca Theatre Company thinks globally but focuses locally.
Our Capital Campaign
We have already purchased two buildings at 2508 and 2514 W Michigan Street that will become a cultural civic center and our home. Renovations have started at 2508, which will become a 75-seat theatre to host our professional productions, a community theatre program, our youth ensemble performances, and more. 2514 will be an open-door civic center available for a wide range of neighborhood meetings, classes, and community events. Our offices and a modest workshop space will also be housed in this building. Together, these spaces will provide a unique platform to amplify the voice of the Near Westside and the minority communities of Indianapolis. Getting into this building will be the critical next step for growing our programs and reaching all of the artistic and civic goals we have. Please consider making a contribution and do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more information!
