‘Altar Boyz’ Hits the Stage at Pella Opera House

Posted: Saturday, October 24th, 2009 at 6:23 am

The historic Pella Opera House will host an award-winning Off-Broadway musical Saturday, when the production Altar Boyz comes to Pella. The musical-comedy spoof about a fictitious Christian boy band on the final night of their national tour typically performs at large venues, and Pella Opera House Executive Director Bill White says there will be a lot of equipment to find space for on the stage.

“It’s gonna be quite a show,” says White. “They’re gonna bring in a fifty-three foot semi truck filled with theatrical gear, so we need to get all of that out of the truck and onto the stage.”

Tickets to see Altar Boyz are $28 and are available by contacting the box office at 641-628-8625 or visiting
