The Show Must Go Online
The pandemic might have caused live theatre to go on hiatus at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts, but when a group of theatre kids put their creative heads together, they decide the show must go online!
The 2020-2021 Virtual Season is made possible through the generous support of the Iowa Arts & Culture Recovery Program.
Performances of The Show Must Go Online are professionally filmed and available online May 21-23, 2021.

Frequently Asked Questions about watching this virtual performance:
Is this a Zoom play, like the last few Young Footliters shows?
No, this is not a Zoom play. This production will be professionally recorded and edited, and then the show will be posted online May 21–23. This means you can watch it your convenience from Friday afternoon, May 21 until 11:59 pm on Sunday May 23, CST.
How do I purchase tickets?
Using the link above, you will purchase your tickets through our partners at Showtix4u.com. Select the performance name and the number of tickets you would like to purchase. You’ll pay with your credit card. Once your order is complete, you’ll receive an e-mail receipt with a link to view the performance. Please note that the performance is viewable only on the dates listed (it won’t be available on other days).
How many tickets should I purchase (e.g., What is a “device”?)
We ask that you purchase tickets just like you would at the theatre—one ticket for each person. Each ticket will allow one “device” (a computer, tablet, or iPad) to watch the show, so you can choose to watch together or separately. Please note that your tickets can’t be shared with friends—only one device per ticket will be able to view the performance.
How much do tickets cost?
Tickets are $12 for children and students, $15 for seniors over the age of 55, and $17 for adults. There is also a $25 “Supporter” ticket for those who would like to support the work of Young Footliters Youth Theatre. Selecting the right ticket is on the “honor system”—thank you for choosing the correct ticket price, it makes these productions possible.
When can I watch the show?
The Show Must Go Online will be available for streaming Friday, May 21–Sunday, May 23. You can view the performance on those dates anytime starting after 4:00 PM on Friday. The show won’t be available on other dates, so don’t miss it!
Please note that although the video rental is technically for 48 hours, the video will no longer be available after 11:59 PM Sunday night (CST). So you will have 48 hours OR until midnight Sunday, whichever comes first.
How do I watch the show?
No special software is needed. When you purchase tickets, you will receive an e-mail confirmation from Showtix4u.com that contains a link for you to watch the performance. To view the performance, we recommend you use a device (computer, laptop, or iPad) that is connected to your wireless network or internet router. If you cannot locate your showtix4u email, please contact the Box Office as soon as possible and we will have it re-sent to you.
When you’re ready to watch the performance, use your favorite computer, laptop, or iPad to open your confirmation email and click on the performance link. You can also copy the link directly into your internet browser. The performance video will open and play in your internet browser.
Is there a playbill for the show?
