“Parting is such sweet sorrow…” – So why not join us!


The ISE is distinguished by an outstanding Young Professionals Initiative.  


Under the founding leadership of terrific leaders like Sarah Ekstrand, and under the continued stewardship of our founding Young Professional’s Board Co-Presidents Liz Nelson and Clair Brigeford, we couldn’t ask for more dynamic way to kick off a great organization!


(See the wonderful two page, full color article on Liz Nelson in Juice:  Click here - an X will appear as soon as the link is up and running.)


So ….You’ve asked- and we’ve listened!  The ISE is creating a number of great membership, club and society options for the many young professionals who want to be more involved!


We are creating a variety of different membership packages which will offer superb perks, such as VIP seating at the Festival, exclusive invitations to special events, invitations to our terrific annual Young Professionals party - - -and all sorts of fun bennies from backstage tours to chances to party down with our Actors and Band!  


In fact, we’re not sure there is a more unique or memorable party spot in all of Des Moines- you haven’t partied until you’ve attended one of our summer bashes down by the river- a summer evening, the twinkling skyline, the splashing sounds of the river in the night- it is one heck of a memorable place to hang out, toss back, and celebrate the season! 


There will be membership levels geared to every taste and price range.  


Also, we are creating service and volunteer packages designed to let you have your fun in exceptional meaningful ways!


AND, per your requests, we also intend to create “Clubs” where all those Thespians out there (or aspiring Thespians!) can get together to themselves perform Shakespeare, working with our Artistic Director, Cast and Crew to have the time of your life!


Watch this space for more information as we grow and get ready for these great add-ons!


Meanwhile, be sure to sign up for our mailing list, check in on our parties pages and attend all the great existing events – and check out our existing volunteer opportunities which get you involved behind the scenes (and invited to great volunteer events!)


Also, feel free to contact us at Robin@IowaShakespeare.org to let us know of your interests!  We look forward to hearing from you!
