Pyramid Theatre Company and Des Moines Performing Arts Postpone Performances of “The Gospel at Colonus”8/30/2021
“The Gospel at Colonus” presented by Pyramid Theatre Company and Des Moines Performing Arts scheduled for Sept. 17-19 is being postponed until spring of 2022. The engagement is being produced in Des Moines with local talent and artists from around the country.
With the current conditions of COVID-19 and the Delta variant it was determined that gathering these
artists in Des Moines to rehearse and perform would not be in the best interest of the artists or the
community. Both organizations are committed to presenting this community performance and
celebration next year.
