  3. August Wilson's The Piano Lesson

1990 Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama, the revered American playwright August Wilson’s The Piano Lesson sets out to explore the possibility of acquiring a sense of self-worth by denying one’s past. Set in Pittsburgh in 1936, A battle is brewing in a Great Depression Era Pittsburgh family. At the center lies the family’s prized heirloom piano. On one side, a brother plans to build the family fortune by selling it. On the other hand, a sister will go to any length to keep it and preserve the family history. Only their uncle stands in between. But even he can’t hold back the ghosts of the past.

South Bend Civic Theatre Frequently Asked Questions FAQ

South Bend Civic Theatre is at 1901 Ridgewood Cir., South Bend, IN.

South Bend Civic Theatre (SBCT) was founded in 1957 by two University of Notre Dame graduates who believed community theatre should be an important part of this area’s culture, and who also believed that living in our community were aspiring actors and actresses who needed to show and form their talents. While early performances were held in homes, hotels, and various locations at Notre Dame, SBCT staged most of its productions after 1968 at the Firehouse, a local historic landmark located on Portage Ave, in South Bend’s historic Near Northwest neighborhood.Beginning in 2000, SBCT began staging larger productions outside the Firehouse, and exploring options for a new permanent venue. In January 2007, the beginning of the Civic’s 50th Anniversary year, SBCT celebrated the opening of its new home in the heart of downtown South Bend, in what had formerly been a First Church of Christ Scientist. The historic domed structure is an architectural wonder and sealed SBCT’s position as a pillar of the region’s art community.
