"IF YOU DON'T OUTDIE ME" is a new musical based on the book of the same name by Brown County's talented singer, songwriter and author Dillon Bustin which brings colorful Brown County characters to life, including Frank Hoenberger, the Brummett Brothers, Allie Ferguson, and more. In 2014, Ball State University's Virginia Ball Center for Immersive Learning spun the book into a musical that was read and sung at the Playhouse. One of the members of the Ball State group was Dr. Julie Lyn Barber who is also a 2018 company member with Nettle Creek Players. Dr. Barber has adapted and added new material to the first draft of the musical which will be performed as a staged reading during a one-night-only fundraiser with the goal of developing it into a fully staged and produced performance in the near future.

"HOOSIER HARMONY" is a funny & heartwarming concert-style musical revue celebrating Indiana-born composers ranging from Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Harry Von Tilzer & The Hoosier Hot Shots to John Mellencamp, Michael Jackson, John Hiatt & The Ink Spots. It recently played to sold-out houses and standing ovations as part of Nettle Creek Players' 2018 Summer Tent Theatre season.
