Des Moines Playhouse to Host 'Second Saturday' for Teens, 10/12
The Des Moines Playhouse is the home for Second Saturday, an alternative Saturday night entertainment for young people in grades 6-12. The next Second Saturday is set for Oct. 12. Cost is $8. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, and is available online at www.dmplayhouse.com.
Second Saturday is an evening of laughter and skits, theatre games and theatre sports. Teens work in groups and meet new people. While Second Saturday isn't a class, it is led by The Playhouse's professional education staff who will help teens create impromptu skits similar to "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"
Second Saturday is held each month, September-May. The 2013-14 season schedule is as follows: Nov. 9, Dec. 14, Jan. 11, 2014, Feb. 8, Mar. 8, Apr. 12, and May 10.
The Playhouse is Iowa's oldest and largest producing theatre. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
