Des Moines Playhouse Adds Performance of Live Theatre Drive-In: ROUNDING THIRD

The Des Moines Playhouse has added a performance of Live Theatre Drive-In: Rounding Third, on Tuesday, July 14, at 7:00 PM. Shows are free - donations are accepted - but reservations are requested due to limited availability. Reservations are available online at dmplayhouse.com or by calling The Playhouse ticket office at 515-277-6261.

In Rounding Third, Don (Chris Ennis) is a coach who believes that winning is what is most important in baseball, and he is all about the game. Michael (Nathan Jorgensen) is his assistant coach and a businessman who believes that kids should have fun when they play baseball. Don's kid is the team's star pitcher. Michael's kid can barely remember to keep his shoelaces tied. These conflicting personalities instantly clash. Shows are 7:00 PM, Wednesdays-Sundays, through July 26, plus the added 7:00 PM, Tuesday, July 14, performance.
