IHSMTA Showcase presented by EMC

June 3, 2019 Des Moines Civic Center

Event Details

Please note: only children age 5 and over with tickets will be allowed into the theater for this production.

Feel the energy of hundreds of amazing student performers representing 77 participating Iowa high schools, as they share highlights from their award-winning school musicals!

This unforgettable evening of entertainment is a celebration of the important contributions of Iowa’s high school drama programs. Throughout the year, theater professionals traveled across the state to review high school musical productions. Now, students from those schools will come together to share highlights from their productions on the Civic Center stage and to receive honors for their work in performance, technical and creative categories. In addition, students will work under the direction of a guest music director and choreographer from New York City to give the best performances of their young lives. You’ll even see dreams come true when two students learn they will represent Iowa at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City this summer.

This is a not-to-be-missed evening for anyone who loves musicals and believes in the power of the arts to impact young people.
