INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Bluecoats Indoor, the World-Class indoor winterguard started just last year is back for a second year! The Bluecoats Indoor Audition Experience is scheduled for September 15th and 16th at Edison School of the Arts in downtown Indianapolis. Check-in will begin at 10 am and overnight accommodations will be provided at the school.

The program, which last year brought the incredible Bluecoats creative team and the unforgettable Bluecoats' experience together in the WGI arena, will return with the same creative team that created the 2018 show and that helps to create the visual elements of the Bluecoats Drum & Bugle Corps shows that we all love.

"The first year of Bluecoats Indoor was exciting for so many reasons - the freshness, the intensity, the unknowns of starting a new program," said Mike Scott of Bluecoats. "This year is exciting for so many different reasons. I cannot wait to get the team back together, to bring our inaugural members together with newcomers, and to see what we can do now that the 'newness' is past us and we get to put ourselves out there once again as Bluecoats."

Registration opened today for the Bluecoats Indoor Audition Experience. Registrations between now and August 31st receive a discounted Early Bird rate of $49. Beginning Sept. 1st, the full price of the two-day event is $65. An FAQ is available on the event page.
