The 2020-2021 Virtual Season is made possible through the generous support of the Iowa Arts & Culture Recovery Program.

Commonly asked questions about watching an ON DEMAND 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 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.
