The Kate Goldman Children’s Theatre at The Des Moines Playhouse, now in its 28th season, presents Harriet the Spy. Oct. 28-Nov. 13, 2022. Tickets are available at dmplayhouse.com and by phone at 515.277.6261. Harriet the Spy is sponsored by Nationwide.
Harriet M. Welsch is an only child raised by busy parents and her well-read, pragmatic nanny, Ole Golly. Harriet is also… a spy. When her secret notebook of blunt and hurtful observations about her classmates and neighbors is accidentally found, her friends turn on her. Ole Golly has left Harriet to marry but returns to her lonely ward to offer her important advice: “Sometimes you have to lie. But to yourself, you must always tell the truth.”
The Playhouse cast includes William Beebe, Colin Boyd, Vivian Rosalie Coleman, Michaela Cross, Ella Frost, Henry Goerend, Madelyn Hammond, Julie Howland, Susan Irish, Genevieve Koenigs, Cid McMillan, Tamera Peake, Hudson Pulver, Eisley Saldanha, Katie Saldanha, Nora Satterstrom, Becky Scholtec, Oliver Thrun, and Amaya Veldkamp. Harriet the Spy is directed by Jen Green with scenic design by Nicholas Amundson, costume design by Jessica Van Essen, and lighting design by Virgil Kleinhesselink.
The Playhouse mission, as one of Iowa's largest and oldest producing theatres, is to create extraordinary, shared experiences through live theatre. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
