“A true intention or belief does not need to be spoken. It is revealed through one’s action.”

April of 2015 celebrates the 150th anniversary of the ending of the Civil War. Iowa sent a greater proportion of its men between the ages of 15-40 than did any other state. This is the story of four of them and three women who loved them.

Adults $18, seniors $16, students $11. Single tickets go on sale beginning September 15 through the Iowa State Center Ticket Office in Ames or any TicketMaster. Tickets are also available at the door in Fisher Theater prior to performances.
