Rivers Institute Traveling Theatre
  • "Ghost Light" by Chyna Cheaney
  • A young boy conquers the fear that keeps him from pursuing his dreams with the help of two great Hoosier performers from the heyday of vaudeville.

  • "The Everything Store" by Kayla Snabl
  • Be careful what you wish for at the Everything Store; you just might get it.

  • "Rex Stout Rings Again" by James Wylder
  • Indiana author Rex Stout finds himself caught in a mystery straight out of one of his novels. How will he solve the case and clear his name?

  • "Waiting for the Universe" by Korby Reed
  • Two scientists wait for a signal from space that will determine once and for all the place of Earth in the universe.

  • Crosier in Arcadia (excerpt) by Tom Evans
  • As a young man, Sidney Crosier abandoned a promising art career in Cincinnati and the opportunity to study in Europe to take care of his aging mother in Corydon, but he continued painting until his death in 1930. This excerpt shows Crosier's creativity extending to his materials as well as his techniques.
