CIVIC CENTER TOURS

Ever wonder where “The Phantom” warms up his vocal chords before “The Music of the Night?” What is the story behind the “ghost light?” And what does it feel like to be a musician performing from “the pit?” Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of one of Central Iowa’s most iconic performing arts venues, the Des Moines Civic Center. We’re pulling back the curtain on spaces that are normally not accessible to our theater goers during live events.

This is a fun and insightful opportunity to learn more about DMPA’s role in bringing world-class performing arts to Des Moines and the place where it all happens. You’ll even get to go above the seats for a view of the main hall like you’ve never seen before!

Tours begin Tuesday, December 8

Group Size: Up to 8 adults/children. Ideal for families, professional groups and students

Tour duration: 1 hour

Pricing: Free/Optional Donation
