WHAT DO YOU DO WITH AN IDEA?
One day, a child has an idea. At first, they don’t know what to do with it. It seems strange. They don’t know what other people will think of this idea and they attempt to hide it away. But the idea persists and gets stronger– along with the child’s confidence. And then, one day, something amazing happens…
Told through movement, music, and narration, an ensemble of dancers creates a magical world where ideas grow and take flight. Based on the New York Times best selling book, this is a story for anyone, at any age, who has ever had an idea that seemed a little too big, too odd, or too difficult.
This production is currently available as a part of the Wellmark Family Series 3-Show Season Ticket Package. The 3-show package starts at just $24.

Des Moines Performing Arts is excited to continue a sensory-friendly initiative with the 2:00 PM performance of What Do You Do With An Idea at the Des Moines Civic Center.
Sensory-friendly performances are geared towards those on the autism spectrum, individuals with other sensory sensitivities and their families. These dedicated performances will contain all the joy of a typical theater setting with a few adjustments to help those in attendance feel more comfortable. This will include alterations to light and sound, a variety of seating options, an environment that will encourage movement and breaks when needed, ASL interpretation, and inclusive staff that will welcome guests from the moment they arrive. Families who do not require these accommodations are still welcome to attend.
