You know about the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up… but what about the girl That Had To?
 

Years after returning from Neverland, Wendy Darling decides she must find Peter in order to reclaim her kiss and move on with her life.  Along the way, she encounters other girls who went to Neverland and learns she is not alone. A coming-of-age exploration of first love and lasting loss, Lost Girl continues J.M. Barrie’s beloved character as she learns to stand in the center of her own story instead of the shadow of someone else’s.

Join Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird, The Cat in the Hat and more of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters in one fantastical musical extravaganza from the Tony Award winning creators of Ragtime and Once On This Island.

Narrated by the Cat in the Hat, this 70-minute journey takes audiences to the Jungle of Nool, the Circus McGurkus, McElligott’s Pool & Solla Sollew as Horton, along with his friends JoJo and Gertrude McFuzz, learn the powers of friendship, loyalty and the imagination.

FEBRUARY 14-23  |  STONER THEATER

What if you could escape the chaos of a busy, scheduled life to the quiet of Nothing? 
 

After his teacher mentions the universe is growing, Simon Ives becomes obsessed with the idea of discovering this Edge - the place between nothing and everything, where he can just be. Simon dreams of going to a place where no one needs him to do anything. Meanwhile, at the Edge of Everything is a boy who fills his time and space with things like galaxy-spanning train sets and ten-million-piece puzzles, but longs for company. When Simon is rocketed into space (through an unlikely series of events involving lots and lots of fireworks), their worlds collide and neither will ever be the same.  
 

Described as “interstellar surrealism,” The Boy at the Edge of Everything is an extraordinary journey of imagination and friendship by internationally acclaimed playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer. DMYAT is proud to present the Iowa premiere of this highly theatrical and inspiring story of a family we all know and the voyage we can only imagine.

Did you hear? Aslan’s on the move.


During World War II, four siblings (Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie) are evacuated from London and sent to live with an old Professor in his safe countryside home. The youngest sibling, Lucy, soon stumbles into a wardrobe and discovers a magnificent world full of magic, talking animals, and ancient prophecies. It isn’t long before all four Pevensies are fighting a war of their own alongside the powerful Aslan to save Narnia from the evil  forces of Jadis, the White Witch. 
 

This beloved story by C.S. Lewis comes to magical life with inspiring messages of love, faith, and courage.
