The Indiana Performing Arts Intiative - a new professional summer stock theatre training program

In 2016, Claude McNeal Productions joined forces with the IUPUI Music Academy and 'Hoosier Bard Productions' at IUPUI to form a new training program for high school and college youth interested in the performing arts.  The result was a highly successful first professional summer stock season featuring Jekyll & Hyde: the Broadway musical, and the absurdist play, Six Charactes in Search of an Author.  Jekyll & Hyde was voted one of the top 5 plays produced in Indy in 2016!
