Some Enchanted Evening Opening Night Livestream

Broadway icons Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II are celebrated in a musical revue of songs from Carousel, Cinderella, Oklahoma!, South Pacific, The Sound of Music, and more.

Livestream and Video-on-demand (VOD) guidance:

  • When you order a streaming option, you will receive a link in the Your Confirmation email that comes from djacobson@dmplayhouse.com. (Check your junk/spam folder as it sometimes ends up there.)
  • The stream can be cast to your smart TV if your TV can accept casting. (The newer models do.) Or if you have ROKU or Chromecast, they too can accept your casting.
  • If you purchase VOD, you can watch the video as many times as you want in a 24 hour period from the first time you start the video. Your link can only be used on one device.
  • For both Livestream and VOD, there are three cameras in the house. While there are some varied angles, there are no movie/Hamilton on Disney+ close-ups. This is not a film; it is a recording of a live theatre production.
  • FAQ: Why is video-on-demand only offered for a limited number of days? As with live performances, The Playhouse has to pay royalties on the show.

When a child loves a toy, that toy becomes real to the child. But is there any magic that can make a toy truly real? The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams has been loved by generations of families. The cast features Corley Blackford, Ella Frost, Ava Gifford, Michael Howland, Caroline Johnson, Finley Snavely, and Oliver Thrun and is directed by Charissa Hamel. The Velveteen Rabbit is presented by Nationwide with Iowa PBS as media sponsor.

Full safety guidelines are posted on the theatre’s website, dmplayhouse.com, and have been updated according to recent recommendations from health officials. Although vaccination numbers are increasing, all in-person guests, volunteers, and staff, must wear a mask at all times, even while seated for the performances.

The Playhouse is Iowa’s oldest and largest producing theatre. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a season of shows every year since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
