Live Theatre Drive-in @ Des Moines Community Playhouse
Jul 10 @ 7:00 pm

The Des Moines Playhouse is keeping theatre LIVE in Des Moines with a unique new initiative: Live Theatre Drive-in. Starting June 12 and continuing nearly every weekend through Aug. 15, The Playhouse will present three, two-person cast plays in its parking lot, with audiences remaining safely in their cars listening via a radio frequency, just like at state-opened drive-in movie theatres. Tickets are pay-what-you-can, but reservations are required as space is limited. We will post a reservation link soon.

David Kilpatrick, Playhouse executive director, said, “Theatre is a communal event. This summer we want to come together and celebrate live performances, yet remain safe and physically distant.”  Playhouse artistic director Katy Merriman added, “I know so many of us feel like we’ve been at home waiting to jump on any chance to create something and spend time with others. I’m excited to provide our community with an outlet for expression, whether on the stage or as a viewer, in a safe environment. And we get to be outside!”

Keeping the audience safe

  • The Playhouse parking lot will accommodate 20 cars with six-plus feet between cars. Audiences can sit in their cars or, remaining physically distanced, sit in lawn chairs in their parking space.
  • Pay-what-you-can donations will be collected via texting software. A tip jar will also be available for those without the ability to text a donation.
  • Restrooms will be available with staff doing a thorough cleaning after each use.
  • Stam Chocolate will be available for sale from theatre staff, and one food truck will be on site at each performance.

About the shows

Love Letters
By A.R. Gurney
7:00 PM, Fridays & Saturdays, June 12-13, 19-20, 26-27
Love Letters centers on two characters, Melissa Gardner and Andrew Makepeace Ladd III. The actors sit side-by-side at tables and read the notes, letters, and cards that span a 50-year friendship. As time progresses, Melissa and Andrew discuss their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, victories and defeats. Each weekend will feature a different pair of Playhouse actors. Love Letters is by A.R. Gurney.

Rounding Third
By Richard Dresser
7:00 PM, Friday & Saturday, July 10-11
7:00 PM Thursdays-Saturdays, July 16-18, 23-25
Don is a coach who believes that winning is what is most important in baseball, and he is all about the game. Michael 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.

The Roommate
By Jen Silverman
7:00 PM, Friday & Saturday, July 31-Aug. 1
7:00 PM, Thursdays-Saturdays, Aug. 6-8, 13-15
Sharon, in her mid-fifties, is recently divorced and needs a roommate to share her Iowa home. Robyn, also in her mid-fifties, needs a place to hide and a chance to start over. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, they encourage her own deep-seated desire to transform her life completely. The Roommate is a dark comedy about what it takes to re-route your life – and what happens when the wheels come off.

Performance Times:
7:00 PM, Fridays & Saturdays + some Thursdays

The Playhouse does not rate subject matter as sensitivities vary from person to person. If you have questions about content, age appropriateness, or other aspects of the show please contact executive director David Kilpatrick, 515-974-5353.

Sharon, in her mid-fifties, is recently divorced and needs a roommate to share her Iowa home. Robyn, also in her mid-fifties, needs a place to hide and a chance to start over. But as Sharon begins to uncover Robyn’s secrets, they encourage her own deep-seated desire to transform her life completely. The Roommate is a dark comedy about what it takes to re-route your life – and what happens when the wheels come off.

Live Theatre Drive-in @ Des Moines Community Playhouse
Jul 24 @ 7:00 pm

The Des Moines Playhouse is keeping theatre LIVE in Des Moines with a unique new initiative: Live Theatre Drive-in. Starting June 12 and continuing nearly every weekend through Aug. 15, The Playhouse will present three, two-person cast plays in its parking lot, with audiences remaining safely in their cars listening via a radio frequency, just like at state-opened drive-in movie theatres. Tickets are pay-what-you-can, but reservations are required as space is limited. We will post a reservation link soon.

David Kilpatrick, Playhouse executive director, said, “Theatre is a communal event. This summer we want to come together and celebrate live performances, yet remain safe and physically distant.”  Playhouse artistic director Katy Merriman added, “I know so many of us feel like we’ve been at home waiting to jump on any chance to create something and spend time with others. I’m excited to provide our community with an outlet for expression, whether on the stage or as a viewer, in a safe environment. And we get to be outside!”

Keeping the audience safe

  • The Playhouse parking lot will accommodate 20 cars with six-plus feet between cars. Audiences can sit in their cars or, remaining physically distanced, sit in lawn chairs in their parking space.
  • Pay-what-you-can donations will be collected via texting software. A tip jar will also be available for those without the ability to text a donation.
  • Restrooms will be available with staff doing a thorough cleaning after each use.
  • Stam Chocolate will be available for sale from theatre staff, and one food truck will be on site at each performance.

Live Theatre Drive-in @ Des Moines Community Playhouse
Jul 18 @ 7:00 pm

The Des Moines Playhouse is keeping theatre LIVE in Des Moines with a unique new initiative: Live Theatre Drive-in. Starting June 12 and continuing nearly every weekend through Aug. 15, The Playhouse will present three, two-person cast plays in its parking lot, with audiences remaining safely in their cars listening via a radio frequency, just like at state-opened drive-in movie theatres. Tickets are pay-what-you-can, but reservations are required as space is limited. We will post a reservation link soon.

David Kilpatrick, Playhouse executive director, said, “Theatre is a communal event. This summer we want to come together and celebrate live performances, yet remain safe and physically distant.”  Playhouse artistic director Katy Merriman added, “I know so many of us feel like we’ve been at home waiting to jump on any chance to create something and spend time with others. I’m excited to provide our community with an outlet for expression, whether on the stage or as a viewer, in a safe environment. And we get to be outside!”

Keeping the audience safe

  • The Playhouse parking lot will accommodate 20 cars with six-plus feet between cars. Audiences can sit in their cars or, remaining physically distanced, sit in lawn chairs in their parking space.
  • Pay-what-you-can donations will be collected via texting software. A tip jar will also be available for those without the ability to text a donation.
  • Restrooms will be available with staff doing a thorough cleaning after each use.
  • Stam Chocolate will be available for sale from theatre staff, and one food truck will be on site at each performance.

Michael 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.
