Homegrown Productions is thrilled to announce that we are finally “Leaving Iowa”! This warm and wonderful comedy will touch anyone who has endured a vacation car trip with the family.

Tickets can be purchased the night of the performance at the box office in the Wilson Center. To maintain safe distancing, some seats will be blocked off. The auditorium seats 400 people, so there will be plenty of space for your party to find seats together. For more information, call 517-930-1421, or email Susan.

Homegrown Productions started as a fundraiser to help support the Wilson Center Auditorium renovations in 2006. The inaugural production, “A St. Johns Home Companion” was met with rave reviews and set the stage for a respected community theatre—and Homegrown Productions has been a regularly performing theatre group since.

Homegrown produces a minimum of two shows per year with a musical review or variety show often making the line-up. Performances mainly take place in the Wilson Center Auditorium in downtown St. Johns, though a handful of performances have been done in partnership with the Starlight Dinner Theater in Lansing.  

Homegrown Productions strives to provide a world-class theatre experience in a small town. Casting and auditions for Homegrown Productions are open to anyone who wishes to be part of the Homegrown community, no experience necessary.
