Sleepless in Indy: Indiana Repertory Theatre’s Celebrity Radio Show, Auction Returns

The IRT’s Celebrity Radio Show, presented by Printing Partners, takes the stage on February 10, 2023, at 6:30 pm, along with a silent auction available online and in-person. Embracing the Valentine’s Day holiday timing, the theme this year is the ultimate romantic comedy­–Sleepless in Indy: When Harry Met a Pretty Woman at My Best Friend’s Big Fat Wedding and a Funeral. Tickets to the Theatre’s one and only fundraiser are $150 per person for a night of entertainment and laughter to help uplift the IRT’s mission in the community.

“Each year, our goal is to make the Celebrity Radio Show the funniest one-night event in Indy,” Radio Show playwright and IRT Board Member Ron Gifford said. “It’s great fun coming up with silly bits about local happenings, but the real magic happens when our civic and business ‘celebrities’ take the stage, embrace the silliness, and have a great time with the audience.”

Always a mix of local community leaders and celebrities, the cast consists of some familiar faces including Tom Griswold of The Bob and Tom Show, Dr. Colette Pierce Burnette, Tamara Winfrey-Harris, Rick Fuson of the Pacers, Angela Smith Jones, and more. For a full cast list, visit the IRT website.

“I am so excited to be returning to the cast of the Celebrity Radio Show,” Angela Smith Jones said. “It is such a fun experience to take the stage with my friends and peers from around the city and create some laughs and entertainment all to support the IRT!”

The silent auction will open for bidding the week before the show and people can participate with or without an event ticket. Money raised from the Celebrity Radio Show goes toward the IRT and its programming. More information about Indy’s most hilarious fundraiser, tickets, sponsorship opportunities, and more is available on the IRT’s website at

“Celebrity Radio Show is a unique one-night only evening of entertainment and it all goes to support the IRT’s mission,” Director of Development Jennifer Turner said. “We invite the community to buy a ticket and come join us for the laughter knowing that your fun night helps make possible every other night of live professional theatre!”
