DES MOINES — Tickets are on sale for “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical,” showing at the Temple Theater May 1-12 as part of the Temple Comedy Series, a presentation of the Prairie Meadows Temple Theater Series presented by Des Moines Performing Arts.

“Broadway’s Next Hit Musical” is an original improvised musical comedy created by the audience members. Abandoning the same old song and dance formula, “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical” is a new show every night made up entirely on the spot by five master improvisers taking cues and suggestions from the audience. What remains is a spontaneously funny evening of music, humor and lots of laughs.

Production dates are 7:30 p.m. May 1-3 and 8-10, 2 p.m. May 3, 5 p.m. May 4 and 11, 8 p.m. May 4 and 11, and 3 p.m. May 5 and 12.

Tickets are available at the Civic Center Ticket Office, all Ticketmaster locations, charge-by-phone at (800) 745-3000 and online at Groups of 15 or more should call (515) 246-2340. For more information, visit
