The Des Moines Community Playhouse is the home for Second Saturday, which will be held 7:30-10:00 PM, Saturday, Feb. 14. Second Saturday is an alternative Saturday night entertainment for young people in grades 6-12. Cost is $8. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged, and is available online at www.dmplayhouse.com.
In its 21st year of theatre fun at the Playhouse, 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, which will help teens create impromptu skits. Upcoming dates for the 2014-15 Second Saturday season are Mar. 14, Apr. 11, and May 9.
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.
