The Miracle Worker      1/18/2015 12:00:00 AM
831 42nd St, Des Moines
This classic drama is the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent, spoiled, almost sub-human, and treated by her family as such. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single, glorious word: water. Friday shows are at 7:00 PM. Saturday shows are at 1:00 PM Sunday shows are at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM (1:00 PM only on February 1)
Ultimate Dinosaurs      1/18/2015 12:00:00 AM
515-274-6868 x222
401 W. Martin Luther King Jr. Parkway, Des Moines
Millions of years ago, the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart, and dinosaurs became passengers on these drifting land masses. The result? Dinosaurs with unusual - and sometimes bizarre - features that are different from the ones we know and love. Based on new, groundbreaking research from scientists around the world, Ultimate Dinosaurs reveals a new breed of dinosaurs that evolved in isolation in South America, Africa and Madagascar. From the tiny Buitreraptor to the massive Giganotosaurus (T. rex's bigger, badder cousin), Ultimate Dinosaurs is a fascinating study of species you may not have met before. See Ultimate Dinosaurs October 12, 2014, through April 12, 2015, at SCI!

Anything Goes      1/22/2015 7:00:00 PM
Lincoln Way & University Blvd, Ames
This saucy production is a winner of three 2011 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and Best Choreography. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely couples set off on the course to true love...proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. Peppering this timeless classic are some musical theatre's most memorable standards, including "I Get a Kick out Of You," "You're the Top," and "Anything Goes."

DIAVOLO      1/24/2015 7:30:00 PM
5152462300
221 Walnut St, Des Moines
"What we do on stage is like a live abstract painting. There is no narrative, but strong themes pervade the work such as human struggle, fear, danger, survival, chaos, order, deconstruction, reconstruction, destiny, destination, faith and love." - Jacques Heim, Artistic Director Diavolo uses abstract and recognized structures to explore the relationship between the danger of our environment and the fragility of the human body. Diavolo is a fusion of many different movement vocabularies such as everyday movement, ballet, contemporary, acrobatics, gymnastics, martial arts and hip-hop. The program will feature the WORLD PREMIERE of Cubicle, a new work co-commissioned by Des Moines Performing Arts.
