A community pillar since 1956, the Iowa City Community Theatre has enlisted local dramatists to take to the stage for the fourth-wall-leaning musical farce The Drowsy Chaperone . A heartfelt and humorous examination of the interplay of life and art, the play depicts a devoted fan of musical theater as he literally slips into the world of his favorite cast album. As the comedic musical unfolds, audiences find themselves thoroughly bemused by the main character's constant footnoting of theatrical trivia, and English students flip frantically through encyclopedias to cite his sources. A nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering a love of theater in the community, ICCT reserves a spot for everybody—onstage, in the audience, or masked behind the subterranean organ.

Dreamwell Theatre has mounted more than 50 plays in 12 years, their intimately stage productions often praised by local publications such as the Iowa Theatre Blog. In the midst of its "War and Consequences" season, the ensemble stiffens its sinews and summons up its blood to recreate the Battle of Agincourt in Shakespeare's arguably most famous military work. Part of a historical tetralogy, Henry V is crammed with choleric clashes and sanguine speeches as the title character leads his troops into combat. The house opens 30 minutes before showtime, giving guests ample time to amble to their spots and check their longbows at the door. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
