The Fonseca Theater in the River West area of Indianapolis had only been open a few months before the pandemic closed all art and entertainment venues.

Producing Director Bryan Fonseca created the new troupe to showcase work and stories important to minority populations. From our Arts and Culture desk, WFYI’s Jill Ditmire spoke with him over the phone about what’s ahead for the company -- including its youth programs, which were actively involved in the community and Haughville area schools before the shut down.

Fonseca says one of the shows he hopes to stage this summer looks at violence and how people can work through it.
