Northwest Indiana Excellence in Theatre Foundation

The mission of the NIETF is to stimulate excellence in theatre arts in NWI through innovative marketing, partnership resourcing, member recognition, and community development.


How It Started

Free Night of Theatre is a national program, originally created by Theater Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for the American Theatre.

Free Night of Theatre is currently supported by the LA Stage Alliance, which has been empowering artists and engaging audiences since 1975.


Welcome to Theatrepalooza 2014!

Thanks for your interest in Theatrepalooza 2014. We're still painting the sets and hanging the lights so we're not quite ready for an audience.

Please come back on June 3rd when registration opens and enter-to-win free tickets to shows from our member companies. It's a great way to discover new artists and a new appreciation for the theatrical community of Northwest Indiana.
