Breeders Theater returns with ‘Tolstory’ at Beach Park Auditorium in April

Breeders Theater is back with a new show for spring – ‘Tolstory‘ – written by T.M. Sell with music by Nancy Warren.

Tolstory is a little bit Tolstoy and a tiny bit Toy Story, as four Russian nesting dolls narrate the life of Katarina Karenin, your typical Russian infant/teen/young woman/older woman.

Tolstory is directed by Teresa Widner Hicks, and features the talents of Deena Chapman, Terri Fincham Conner, Laura Smith, and Erika Zabelle.

The show runs April 4, 5, 11 and 12 at 7 p.m. and April 6 and 13 at 2 p.m. at the Des Moines Beach Park Auditorium, 22030 Cliff Ave. S. Des Moines.

Tickets are $20 and are available at, and through the City of Des Moines at the Des Moines Field House Recreation Office, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (1000 S. 220th Street).

Credit card purchases may be made by phone by calling the city Parks and Recreation Department at 206-870-6527, weekdays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
