Construction on the new look for the Des Moines Playhouse will get underway next week.
The Playhouse has raised over $3-million for work to the 79-year-old building.
The first phase will begin Monday with renovations to the front facade.
Future phases will include revitalizing the main stage theatre, adding a new education wing, adding more storage space, and updating mechanics.
Monday, the Playhouse will also announce who’s donating an additional $1-million to the project.
