TheatreWorks of Southern Indiana: First season of six productions to launch on June 1.

It's almost April, which provides an opportunity for an update. First, where we've already been.

The Parthenon is coming back to life: "TheatreWorks to Open a Community Arts Center in Downtown New Albany."

Now, where it's going. Auditions have been announced for Neil Simon's Rumors (here), and the C-J just released a detailed spread about a theater-in-progress.

TheatreWorks Artistic Director Chris Bundy knew the first time he took a tour of the historic building in downtown New Albany that it could be "the place."

“I knew this could be so elegant,” Bundy said as he toured the building at 203 E. Main St. that is undergoing a transformation into an arts center.

Since February, the TheatreWorks team and construction workers have been furiously working to get the building — erected as a bank in 1837 — and performance spaces ready so the company can launch its first season of six productions in its new home on June 1.

Bundy - who taught theater for 39 years, including 15 at Floyd Central where he led the theater program - has been designing the first-floor mainstage theater space and a second-floor space that will have a portable stage that can be used for different kinds of performances by guest groups.
