We are the Northwest Indiana Excellence in Theatre Foundation or NIETF (pronounced “KNEE-tif”) for short, and we celebrate theatre arts community here in the Region. Our member theatres strive to showcase all that is great in the arts and to remind us that we don’t have to head north into the city to be entertained.

If you’d rather watch a video, this one sums NIETF up pretty well.


Originally aired on March 1, 2013 on South Bend’s local Public Broadcasting Station WNIT, on the daily show “Experience Michiana” hosted by Gordy Young. Produced by Andrew Brent and co-producer Gareth Matteson for WNIT’s Experience Michiana.
