From music and dance to Opera and Broadway, the Butler Arts Center offers audiences world-class entertainment and variety for audiences of all ages. Located on the campus of Butler University and minutes from Broad Ripple and Downtown Indianapolis, we  not only offer outstanding live entertainment, but a destination for complete visiting enjoyment.



Join our Corporate group program and your employees will receive savings on Butler Arts Presents performances, Butler Ballet’s The Nutcracker and the spring ballet, and many other performances. We do not require a minimum number of tickets purchased nor is there a cost to the corporation to participate in our program. The only commitment we require is that each corporation provide one contact person.  This corporate representative will receive a link and password to their organization's page on our group website and will be responsible for posting/sharing that information to the employees.  From there, individuals can log on to the system to purchase tickets at a discounted rate.  Call Group Sales at (317) 940-6444 and enroll your company today.
