Dolly Fund Kickoff Party

Dolly Fund Kickoff Party
Saturday, September 26, 2015
5:30 - 8:30 PM (CDT)

RSVP No later than September 11

The Dolly Fund is an art education scholarship initiative by Paul Marshall, in honor of his late wife and former LCA director, Dolly Marshall. Dolly had a life long belief that arts education for children was crucial to their development. In partnership with LCA, The Dolly Marshall Memorial Fund at Lubeznik Center for the Arts was created. On September 26, we hope to raise $50,000. At that sum the fund will become a permanent endowment that will produce an annual income for arts education for children who cannot afford class fees. We invite you to join us on September 26 to help permanently support the ever expanding teaching mission of LCA financially.

The evening will feature the following:

5:30 PM – Wine reception, Hors d’oeuvres, Live Music by the Billy Foster Duo, and Silent Auction

7:00 PM – A brief presentation of Dolly’s life and her love of the arts

7:30 PM – Raise your paddle for Dolly & LCA

RSVP Online

RSVP no later than September 11, 2015. Or you can RSVP by calling 219.874.4900.

If you are unable to attend the event, but would like to donate to the fund, you can do so below.

"She's Not There"


She's Not There," by Jerry Holt, is a fanciful treatment of the Belle Gunness story that reunites the ensemble company that has performed Holt's local history plays at LCA for the past four years. Returning favorites Steve Becker and Glenn Silver will be joined by Northwest Indiana Stage Legend Kali Rasala-- and LCA's own Sarah Dwight. 

The two-act play is set in 1932, in the early years of the Great Depression.  Although the infamous LaPorte serial killer Belle Gunness has been officially dead since 1908, there have been plenty of "sightings" to indicate that the Gunness may have escaped the fire that supposedly killed her.  At least, that is what hotel proprietor Cletus Snee believes with all his heart.  As for his young and frustrated wife Bathsheba--Not So Much.  The stage is set for these explosive elements:  A blizzard.  A mysterious female visitor who may be Belle herself.  And finally--the appearance of a young J. Edgar Hoover, scouring Indiana for Depression-day outlaws--who will wind up employing a very unusual method to try to determine if Belle Gunness lives! Enjoy light bites catered by Shoreline Brewery.
