Stebens Children's Theatre 2023/2024 Season
Has Been Announced!
America’s Favorite Musical
“The Music Man”
Sponsored by North Iowa Community Credit Union
October 11-22, 2023
Wicked, funny, warm, romantic and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best. Meredith Willson's six-time, Tony Award-winning musical comedy has been entertaining audiences since 1957 and is a family-friendly story to be shared with every generation
A Raucous Farce
Sponsored by Children’s Dental Center and Todd & Renee Hoeppner
December 5-15, 2023*
Written by American theater’s most produced playwright, “Cinderella” is a seasonal favorite that will leave the audience reeling with side-splitting hilarity. This farcical romp through a traditional fairytale will have you laughing, crying and rooting for one of theater’s favorite heroines.
A Miracle Story
Sponsored by First Citizens Bank
February 13-25, 2024*
“One of the funniest tales ever to land on the Stebens stage!” Home from the wars, three famished soldiers wander into a village begging for food. When the townspeople claim the “cupboard is bare” the soldiers make soup - from stones! A “miracle” romance adapted to the stage just in time to teach us all a small lesson on “sharing.”
Our Annual Fundraising Event
“For the Love of Stebens!”
This traditional event generally entertains between 150-250 well-heeled theater patrons with a celebration that features music, trivia, food, drink; as well as a live and silent auction. Our patrons love this party and you will too! Your sponsorship will be advertised all year round and includes a table/party of eight.
Sponsored by Alpha Orthodontics
April 5-19, 2024*
The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was followed by two successful West End runs. The outrageous, uproarious, and gloriously entertaining story of King Arthur and the Lady of the Lake will delight audiences as they search for the Holy Grail and “always look on the bright side of life.”
A Student Creation
“Stepping out at Stebens”
Sponsored by Drs. Beck, Bhangoo & Ondoma from Neurosurgery of North Iowa
May 8-11, 2024*
SCT’s annual variety show features lively music, singing and dancing and some of the SCT’s most absurd moments of theatre; homemade comedy, caricature, parody and novelty acts jump up on our stage for a full night of entertainment!
An Award-Winning Play
“Still Life with Iris”
Sponsored by the Rattay Families
June 4-9, 2024*
A fantastical adventure which centers on a little girl's search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno—a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day. This entertaining play won the Kennedy Center’s Fund for new plays.
