Des Moines Playhouse

  • 73 people are interested

Anyone who ever wanted to act, from persons with no experience to the most seasoned actor, is welcome on our stage. Part of what makes The Playhouse successful is the diversity of our participants. Beginning with auditions, which are typically held 6-7 weeks prior to opening, and ending with the final curtain call, staff and support volunteers are there to help. Many novices are concerned about learning all the lines or being nervous on stage. This should not stop anyone! During the many weeks of rehearsal, your role and character will become second nature. Visit https://www.dmplayhouse.com/volunteer/audition/ for a current schedule of audition dates and cast needs.

NOTE: Due to the pandemic, our 2020-21 Season has not yet been announced. Shows and dates, as well as any changes to audition and rehearsal practices, will be posted on our audition page, https://www.dmplayhouse.com/volunteer/audition/
