As individual shows begin to go on sale to the general public, Des Moines Performing Arts would like to strongly remind theatergoers and gift givers to purchase tickets only through Des Moines Performing Arts, the Civic Center Ticket Office, and Ticketmaster.  

When purchasing tickets to any event at the Civic Center, Stoner Theater, or Temple Theater event, customers should be advised to use only the following methods to guarantee valid tickets and seating:

Civic Center Members can purchase tickets by calling (515) 246-2300 or through a members-only link.

Neither Des Moines Performing Arts nor Ticketmaster can guarantee the authenticity of tickets purchased from any other reseller (such as brokers or individuals).

Please be aware of "second party vendors" who tend to sell tickets online at a rate more than double the standard price. Tickets bought through these means may not be valid and you would be refused admission.

Des Moines Performing Arts urges customers to purchase tickets directly from the Civic Center Ticket Office or through the following authorized Ticketmaster locations:, Ticketmaster Charge-by-Phone (800) 745-3000, and Ticketmaster Outlets.
