IU Theatre & Drama 2010-2011 Season
Indiana University's Lee Norvelle Theatre and Drama Center has announced their 2010-2011 schedule. Each of these productions are also listed on the visitbloomington.com calendar of events, but I thought I'd share the entire schedule as well. There are some great shows coming up! Start planning now to build a Bloomington getaway around a night out at the theatre, just add a tasty meal at one of the area's awesome eateries, reserve a hotel room and you've got the perfect getaway for the girls or cozy weekend with someone special!
