Get Involved

Welcome to the Des Moines Community Playhouse! We’re thrilled that you’re interested in becoming part of our team. There are so many ways to get involved. We have activities for people of all ages, skill levels and varying interests.

If you’re here, you’ve already taken the first step. The next step is to sign up on our online form that will tell us everything we need to know to get you started with us. The form takes about 5 minutes to complete. We’ll contact you within a few days of receiving it.

Each year, the Playhouse honors all those have volunteered on-stage, backstage, and front-of-house at the Dionysos Awards. The theatre also recognizes Playhouse Legends; actors who have helped set the standard of entertainment, professionalism, and quality our audiences expect.
