School Tours

Want an inside look at any of Des Moines Performing Arts' venues? Tours for school groups can be arranged for performance and non-performance dates for grades 3 and above. To inquire about tour date availability, contact Michelle at (515) 246-2355.

Things to consider when inquiring about a tour for your school group:

  • How many people will be participating in the tour?
  • How much time will we be able to spend at the theater? (30-45 minutes minimum recommended).
  • What time of day works best in our schedule?
  • Are we limited to a particular date or are we open to exploring multiple date options?
  • Is there a particular focus or take-away that I would like my students to experience? (For example, the technical side of theater? Careers in the performing arts?)
  • Are there any special considerations the Des Moines Performing Arts should be aware of when planning our tour?
