Des Moines Playhouse's 2017-18 Teen Improv Night Kicks Off on 9/9
The Des Moines Community Playhouse is the home for Second Saturday, an alternative Saturday night entertainment for young people in grades 6-12. The new season of teen improv starts 7:30-10:00 PM, Saturday, Sept. 9. Cost is $9. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, and is available online at dmplayhouse.com.
In its 24th year of theatre fun at the Playhouse, Second Saturday is an evening of laughter, skits, and theatre games. 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, which will help teens create impromptu skits. Upcoming dates for the 2017-18 Second Saturday season are Sept. 9, Oct. 14, Nov. 11, Dec. 9, 2017; Jan. 13, Feb. 10, Mar. 10, and Apr. 14, 2018.
The Playhouse is one of the oldest and largest community theatres in the US. 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.
