Mission statement – To inspire and transform lives and cultural organizations through the energizing power of theatre and of theatre-related educational programming, while creating timely and relevant original works that enhance and stimulate the performing arts in Central Indiana.

Vision - The performing arts are essential in preparing young people intellectually, physically, emotionally and ethically for the complex and changing world. Our program participants will build character and come away with a greater sense of self, of belonging to a larger community, and have a greater sense of cooperation..

Under the umbrella of Claude McNeal Productions are four educational theatre programs: the ACT Out Ensemble (our social-issues theatre troupe); Youth and the Arts training programs for young artists; student matinees in the Humanities; and the Indiana Performing Arts Initiative (an apprentice and internship arts training program incorporating professional Summer Stock shows.) Claude McNeal Productions’ staff has over 26 years of expertise in theatre education and social-issue related programming.

Serving close to 15,000 program participants annually (before COVID-19), we serve a community of artists, schools and communities to bring alternative educational theatre experiences to children and adults. Our programs serve to help build healthy relationships, build character, instill a greater sense of self, of cooperation and belonging to a community, and to inspire future artists and patrons.
