Tony Award® winner Santino Fontana is thrilled to be making his debut at the Des Moines Civic Center! Come celebrate a spontaneous, intimate and bespoke evening of his and your favorite songs - intermixed with hilarious showbiz tales about everyone from James Earl Jones to Ryan Gosling. With his rich voice, dynamic versatility and charisma, Fontana has cemented himself as one of Broadway’s favorite leading men.

Fontana was last seen starring on Broadway in his tour-de-force dual role in Tootsie, for which he received the 2019 Outer Critics Circle, Drama Desk and Tony Awards®. He is perhaps best known to audiences as the voice of villainous Prince Hans in the Academy Award winning Disney film, Frozen. Television audiences saw him on the most recent season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and recognize him from “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Shades of Blue,” “Mozart In The Jungle,” “Fosse/Verdon,” “Royal Pains,” “Nurse Jackie,” and more.  His other Broadway credits include Hello, Dolly!Act OneCinderellaThe Importance of Being Earnest (Clarence Derwent Award), Brighton Beach Memoirs (Drama Desk Award), Billy Elliot, and Sunday in the Park with George. He also received Lortel and Obie Awards for his Off-Broadway performance in Stephen Karam’s Sons of the Prophet.  

As an interpreter of the American Songbook, he won the renowned Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival when he was 18 and has sung with orchestras, big bands, and smaller ensembles including the New York Philharmonic, NY Pops, National Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Master Voices, Westchester Philharmonic, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Sesame Street Muppets, Phoenix Symphony, and at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, Birdland and the Bravo Festival at Vail.

"The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities."
