Drake University and the Des Moines Playhouse recently joined forces. The Playhouse is hosting performances and educational programming off-site while they renovate their original building.
Drake students are helping the Playhouse spread the word about these performances.
“We were getting kind of nervous – when we move, will the audience follow us?” said Des Moines Playhouse Executive Director David Kilpatrick. “Part of our mission is to educate and engage with the community, so it was a natural fit to partner with Drake University students on a communications strategy.”
Drake students have been meeting with the Playhouse to prepare social media and web content. These will help bring students and staff together in reaching out to bring other people into the program.
Drake University Art Major Ashley Wildman spoke about the partnership between Drake and Des Moines Playhouse, and gave her opinion on what a great partnership this could be.
