We are proud to announce our season and know that you will be as excited as we are about the
possibilities it brings to the audiences and the theatre community in Des Moines and central Iowa.
In addition to four Mainstage shows at the Civic Center and one bonus musical at Grandview
College, we are also proud to present experimental works in dance, theatre of the absurd,
and gritty new American realism as informal workshops during the course of the year, directed by
promising new directors in the area; we're also offering a staged reading of "Inherit the Wind"
for you in connection with Grandview College's theatre department. With a modern class, a classic
from antiquity, an Iowa premiere, a central Iowa premiere, and a bonus classical musical, we offer you
a season that is in keeping with our mission: "The Drama Workshop produces dynamic theatre to engage
all Iowans." We, as a volunteer organization, aim to produce engaging, enlightening, and entertaining
theatre. Come experience it with us!
