In our current 2019-2020 Season, we estimate we'll be providing training opportunities to over 200 students in Central Iowa. Based on previous years' data, we're expecting to work with students from over 80 different schools!
But introducing students and their families to the transformative power of live theatre and the arts is not an inexpensive task. We always strive to bring the highest quality of entertainment to your family at the lowest possible price. Giving to DMYAT allows us to reach more students, provide more programming, and continue to offer the most affordable tickets in town. There are a few ways you can support our mission and support our youth.
The easiest way to support DMYAT is to purchase season tickets to our 2019-2020 Season. It also lets us know that you support our mission, trust us to present high quality entertainment while changing the lives of our students and, most importantly, it shows the next generation of great theatre artists that Central Iowa believes in them.
We offer a three-show Stoner Series subscription that includes tickets to three great family productions at the Stoner Theater: Seussical Jr., The Boy at the Edge of Everything, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
We also offer a 15-Pack Flex Subscription, giving you fifteen vouchers to use in any combination at any 2019-2020 production, including Lost Girl and our summer musical (to be announced). The Flex Pack is a great way to introduce loved ones to DMYAT. Get your season ticket or flex pack here.

Many local corporations want to support the nonprofits that matter to their employees. Some will match your donation--up to 100%. Others will make financial contributions for every volunteer hour you spend with us. To learn more about how your company can support Des Moines Young Artists' Theatre, contact your human resources department.
We're also looking for corporations to sponsor our upcoming productions. These sponsorships are offered at various levels and are designed to cover specific production costs such as our weekly rent at the Stoner Theater, performance royalties or guest artist fees. Free tickets and marketing opportunities are given in exchange. If you'd like to see your company's name on the cover of our next Standing Ovation, contact us so we can work together to make it happen!
Individual contributions are vital in fulfilling our mission. You and your family can give by mailing us a check or by making a secure donation through DonorBox, a website designed for non-profits like us. Because DMYAT is a 501c3, your gift may even be tax-deductible!
If you are interested in learning about specific needs or areas within our programming to support, feel free to contact us or browse our wish list. We have individual sponsorships available for productions, are always seeking scholarships for our training programs, and are eager to improve our sound system. Whether you're able to give us $20 or $5,000, we are happy to find the right fit.
