If you enjoyed our debut of RED, join us for our second production...

In this "comedy of suspicion," five characters inhabit multiple layers of a single, often conflicting and absurd story. Through a whirlwind of scenes and situations, the audience members act as detectives, trying to figure out what is real and what is not.

...And the return of "Pay What It's Worth"!

Our "Pay What It's Worth" ticket pricing means you pay what you think our play is worth! At the Workshop, you see the show first, then pay on your way out based on how you would value our work. This philosophy is an expression of one of our most deeply-held beliefs: The audience should have a voice in how much and what kind of theatre is created in its community.

We want to hear from you in many ways: conversations before and after the show, feedback on our facebook page, and yes...even by how much you decide to pay for your evening of entertainment. So make your reservation now, come on by and enjoy the show, and hang around afterward and say "Hi"!

Performances: January 18th - February 3rd
Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30pm
Sundays at 3:00pm

We'll see you at the show!

Amana – Go back to the 70’s with The Old Creamery Theatre and the Ox Yoke Inn® for this year’s comic murder mystery dinner theatre, Death by Disco. Your favorite Old Creamery performers are breaking out the platform shoes and dusting off their disco moves to take you to the disco contest where someone won’t be “Staying Alive” after all. The evening comes complete with an Ox Yoke Inn® dinner fit for any disco king or queen. Dinner includes salad, entrée of your choice, beverage and dessert.

Written by James Daab, Death by Disco opens Feb. 14 and runs through March 16.  Performance dates are as follows:
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 14 - 17
Friday and Saturday, Feb. 22 & 23, March 1 & 2, 8 & 9, 15 & 16.

The cast of Death by Disco consists of Nicholas Hodge of South Amana, T.J. Besler of Manchester, Stacia McKee of Coralville, Jackie McCall and Sean McCall both of Marengo, Eddie Skaags of Cedar Rapids, Deborah Kennedy and Tom Milligan both of West Amana.

Cost for dinner and the show is $45 per person. Seating starts at 5:30 p.m. and the show starts at 6 p.m. Because the action takes place over dinner, there are no “show only” tickets available.

Tickets are available in person at the Ox Yoke Inn®, Amana or by calling Taylor, Group Sales Manager at the Ox Yoke, weekdays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 800-233-3441.

Death by Disco is sponsored by Amana Insurance Agency and Allied Insurance.

The Old Creamery Theatre Company is a not-for-profit professional theatre founded in 1971 in Garrison, Iowa. The company is celebrating 43 years of bringing live, professional theatre to the people of Iowa and the Midwest.

DeWitt Operahouse Indie Film Series starts January 20 PDF Print E-mail
News Releases - Stage & Theatre

Independent films are gaining in popularity, both with filmmakers and at the box office. We are establishing an “indie” film series for 2013 at the DeWitt Operahouse Theatre.  Our inspiration for the series comes from a variety of sources, including  the former “Brew & View” in Rock Island, filmmakers such as Kristian Day, and Tammy and Kelly Rundle, and the interest shown by the media and moviegoers in independent films.

The local Friends of the Library are our cosponsors. Kristian Day, (Capone's Whiskey: The Story of Templeton Rye) is our advisor.  The movies will show the third Sunday of the month at 2:00. Tickets are $5.00.   First of all, I hope you consider this newsworthy and will share our information in the River Cities Reader, which, by the way, is always on our counter at the Operahouse.  Second, I’d like to invite you to visit us at  any of our showings.

Here is our list, as of today:

1/20/13 - "2012-13 Best of the Rural Route Film Festival"
2/17/13 - Something Blue
3/17/13 - Hellbound?
4/21/13 - Sleepwalk with Me
5/19/13 - Nobody Walks
6/16/13         TBA
7/21/13         TBA
8/18/13 - Capone's Whiskey: The Story of Templeton Rye
9/15/13 - Undefeated
10/20/13 - Best Worst Movie w/ Troll 2
11/17/13 - Is this Heaven?
12/15/13                TBA

We are, every other day of the week, a conventional one-screen theater. (The Hobbit is playing right now.) The Operahouse has been up and running since 1878, starting with the Uncle Tom plays, moving on to burlesque, then silent films, and, legend has it, the first theater of our size west of the Mississippi to have talkies. And now, we're finally out of the horse & buggy era, showing our films on a digital projector.
