NOW Playing at the Iowa Theater

The Lion King

Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny on the plains of Africa. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is soon ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. Now, with help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba must figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.  PG / 110 min

High Plains Drifter

In this Western, a drifter with no name (Clint Eastwood) wanders into a small town, where his gun-slinging abilities are in high demand. When the drifter rides into Lago, he is met with incredulity and disapproval by the townspeople. But once he shows his skills with a pistol, the locals realize he may be able to help them fend off a band of criminals who have been terrorizing the town. He agrees to help the townspeople, but does so with his own secret agenda.  R/ 1 hr, 45 min

The Winterset Stage “Introduction to the Stage” class

Saturday • 9/7 • 10:00am – Noon
to be held at The Iowa Theater

If being on stage is one of your ‘bucket list’ items, if you’ve thought about getting involved in a production but you feel a little rusty since your high school theater days, or even if you’ve been involved in some productions but want to bump up your actings skills, we welcome you to join us for this “Introduction to the Stage” Workshop.

Led by Teddi Yaeger and Meredith McKay, this completely relaxed and non-threatening two-hour workshop will cover:

  • Stage Lingo & Vocabulary
  • How to get the most from a script
  • Basics of blocking and stage movement
  • Auditioning Basics

There is no cost for this workshop and it’s open to all! If you’d like to audition for Charlotte’s Web (Auditions on September 15 & 16), this would be a great way to get yourself in the groove.
