Grant Awarded!

History Boy Theatre Company was honored with an emergency grant from the Iowa Arts Council and the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs awarded to performing and visual arts entities in the state.

Our grant has allowed us to continue planning for the future of the Theatre and new shows. We are thrilled to have been selected for this grant out of the hundreds of requests for the funds. Covid has changed everything, but we are determined to bring live theater back for our cast, crew, and especially for our patrons!

Summer Show!


Here at History Boy we are FINALLY excited to announce that we WILL be putting on a summer production.

We are thrilled with the opportunity to bring you The Burnt Part Boys.

Auditions for this show will be held Sunday March 21st at 3pm at the theatre.

With all that being said this show will look a little different this year. We will not be holding the production at our venue but at an outdoor venue for the safety of our patrons. While the official venue has not yet been decided we will be announcing it soon along with the dates of the production. We hope everyone is as excited as we are to be back!
