Duck Creek Center for the Arts
202 S Anderson St. Elwood, IN 46036
Live performances and theatrical productions are only a part of what The Duck Creek Center for the Arts is all about.

124 W 9th St. Anderson, IN 46016
It all started in 1959 with a group of 10 members of an adult education speech class who formed the Madison County Dramatic Players. Many decades later and with a permanent home in Mainstage Theatre, this community theatre (one of the oldest, self-supporting ones in the state), presents six performances from March to November.
