Every Christmas Story Ever Told

December 3 – 19, 2021

Directed by: Tom Perrine
Cast – Sarah Gamblin, Dan Haymes, Eric Olson
Details – A madcap romp through the holiday season! Instead of performing Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told — plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture, and every carol ever sung. 

Presented: December 3 -19, 2021 at 2019 Grand Ave, Suite 100 West Des Moines, IA.  Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 PM, Sundays at 2:00 PM.


The Revolutionists

February 4 – 20, 2022

Directed by: Megan Helmers
THE STORY: Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.


Tiny Beautiful Things

April 29 – May 15, 2022

Directed by: Maranda Turner
Details: Based on the best-selling book by Cheryl Strayed and adapted for the stage by Nia Vardalos, Tiny Beautiful Things personifies the questions and answers that “Sugar” was publishing online from 2010-2012. When the struggling writer was asked to take over the unpaid, anonymous position of advice columnist, Strayed used empathy and her personal experiences to help those seeking guidance for obstacles both large and small. Tiny Beautiful Things is a play about reaching when you’re stuck, healing when you’re broken, and finding the courage to take on the questions which have no answers.
