The Pike Performing Arts Center, part of the Metropolitan School District of Pike Township, hosts a season that includes nationally touring performances appropriate for the whole family. From Marcel Marceau and Taiwanese Acrobats to Irish folk music and one-person monologues, Pike offers an impressive variety. In addition, touring artists work with Pike High School students in workshops and other forums. PPAC also collaborates with an assortment of Indianapolis-based groups for its performance schedules. It maintains ties with Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Indianapolis and Young Audiences of Indiana, and features performances by Pike High School students in the school’s choir, orchestra and band.
