Written by Marcia Cebulska, in response to the hate ministry of the Westboro Baptist Church, Visions of Right has not only timely social and political implications relating to themes of homosexuality and anti-Semitism, but also has a local interest. Marcia Cebulska lived and wrote in Bloomington for about 25 years and will be working closely with this production.
After her time in Bloomington, Marcia moved to Topeka, Kansas where she became painfully aware of the hate-mongering Westboro Baptist Church. She went undercover, attempting to discover the basis for the bigoted activities of the church. Visions of Right, fueled by her research, evolved into a fictionalized portrait of a fanatic preacher. Gay Bashing and anti-Semitism are brought to light in the play, which tells the story of photographer, Christina Romanek’s, head-to-head encounter with the preacher’s twisted view of what is right. The cast includes IU theatre graduate students, both members of Actors’ Equity, Abby Lee and Chris Handley, IU undergraduate theatre major, Adam Decker, and well-known Bloomington actor, Gerard Pauwels.

The Ivy Tech John Waldron Arts Center houses a unique blend of artists, performers, and educators. At the Ivy Tech Waldron, visitors can see a play, catch a concert, and enjoy multiple art galleries. The venue’s two performance spaces, the Whikehart Auditorium and the Rose Firebay, have both hosted countless events since the center’s doors opened in 1992. Although it’s just as adaptable and well-equipped, the Rose Firebay is a more intimate space than the auditorium upstairs, seating up to 90 people. The Rose Firebay is fully accessible through the Waldron’s Fourth Street entrance. Parking is available across the street in the Fourth Street Garage.
The Jewish Theatre of Bloomington is deeply committed to both Judaism and theatre. It is their intent to produce works that arise from or reflect the Jewish experience, but that also focus on universal issues of the human condition that are accessible to a diverse audience. Their aim is to bring together an audience of Jews and non-Jews to explore aspects of Jewish life in a modern world.
