Write a screenplay and get it produced with Pigasus Pictures, audition for a play in Brown County, but don't plan on seeing Ken Jeong next month at the Indiana University Auditorium.
Pigasus Pictures announces contest
Dear Indiana high school students, If you've never written a short screenplay, don't worry. Look around and write about something or someone you know. Keep it simple, for a better chance at getting your film produced. You've got till Feb. 5 to submit your entry to Pigasus Pictures.
The Indiana-based film company behind feature films "The Good Catholic," "Ms. White Light" and other movies wants to read your short screenplays. For the fifth year in a row, filmmakers at Pigasus Pictures will choose the winner, then bring a film crew to the town of that high school student — and fully produce the film. In addition, students from area schools will be encouraged to work on the project, learning from professional filmmakers.
“We want to tell real stories about the real experiences of young people growing up in Indiana," said Zachary Spicer, CEO of Pigasus, in a news release.

The student's film will be produced in the latter part of the school year and will be screened in Indiana theaters, submitted to film festivals across the country and made available for streaming.
Pigasus has produced both short and feature-length films and started their nonprofit company Pigasus Institute (the producing entity for Project Pigasus), opening a production studio in Bloomington. (In 2019 they also started the Bloomington Academy of Film & Theatre.)

No Ken Jeong right now
Comedian and actor Ken Jeong canceled has his Feb. 12 engagement at the IU Auditorium. If you bought tickets you'll be reimbursed for the full amount.
IU Auditorium is eager to see you at other events that are scheduled for the spring semester. Contact the box office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 812-855-1103 if you have questions. This cancellation will not hurt IU Auditorium Loyalty Points members' point totals.

Brown County Players' 2022 season
As Theatre Brown County transitions to "Brown County Players" (to avoid confusing the amateur theater at the Brown County Playhouse with the professional one), Mark Stolle announces a nice list of upcoming productions.
"Without that affiliation (with the playhouse), we would not be able to undertake an ambitious schedule in 2022," Stolle, a Brown County Player, said in an email.

"I don’t want to take a chance on losing communication with anyone as we forge ahead ...," he said.
