SUBMITTED PHOTO “Bonnie & Clyde,” the electrifying story of reckless young lovers, adventure and crimes, will close out Buck Creek Players’ 43rd season of theater. Opening Friday, June 9, for three weekends, the musical retells the lives of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, small-town nobodies in West Texas who became two of America’s most renowned folk heroes because of their brazen robberies and murders from 1931-34. Curtain time is 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2:30 p.m. Sundays at the troupe’s playhouse, 11150 Southeastern Ave. Tickets, $18 for students and seniors citizens 62 and older, $20 adults, can be reserved by calling 317-862-2270 or visiting www.buckcreekplayers.com. Group discounts are available for parties of 10 or more when tickets are purchased online in a single transaction for the same performance.
The blast of trumpets, the warmth of woodwinds and the thunder of percussion will be heard at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 8, as the Pops Series at Garfield Park’s MacAllister Center for the Performing Arts, 2450 Shelby St., opens with a rousing performance of jazz, pop and classical tunes by the Philharmonic Orchestra of Indianapolis.
Patrons can grab a seat in the amphitheater or bring a blanket or lounge chairs and enjoy a picnic on the lawn. Either way, they’ll find themselves humming along to familiar melodies throughout the free concert.
The series will continue most Thursdays through Aug 4., with the Indianapolis Symphonic Band performing at 7 p.m. June 15. Also taking the stage this month will be the Indianapolis Brass Choir on June 29.
