All performances will take place in the Orpheum Black Box Theater. Price for each performance is $10; tickets can be purchased in advance by calling 641-844-5921, visiting the Orpheum homepage, or by stopping by the Orpheum Theater Center office at 220 E. Main St. in Marshalltown.

On Saturday, Feb. 5, the Orpheum will play host to Marshalltown band Land of Blood and Sunshine. Phil Young of Wabi Sound in Des Moines says, “Few bands have played as many shows around Central Iowa as the thunderous power house of musicians known as Land of Blood and Sunshine. Rarely do you see a band as focused and cohesive as LOBAS with an unbridled energy that really wakes you up.”

The Orpheum will feature two musical acts in the month of April. On April 23, the Orpheum will play host to Central Standard Time, an acoustic guitar group. The warm resonance of an acoustic guitar folds perfectly into so many scenes. Though the songs are new, they are steeped in the American folk tradition.

On April 30, the Stebens Children’s Theatre will take the stage. The traveling troupe presents Swingtime Canteen, a rip-roaring, patriotic extravaganza that features six glamorous film stars singing classics from the 1940s.

The final event of the month is Pan-American Steel Drum Band, a high-energy percussion band ranging from the best of Caribbean music to the most challenging new music. The performance is set for Saturday, May 14.

All general admission tickets $10. Call 641.844.5921 to purchase tickets.

The Orpheum Theater Center is administered by Iowa Valley Community College District and demonstrates IVCCD’s vitality and commitment to partnering, educating and building our communities.
