One of Iowa’s biggest and most popular venues will be back in action with live, in-person shows this fall. Iowa State University’s Stephens Auditorium in Ames unveiled its 2021-22 season, which starts on Oct. 3 with Three Dog Night, a rock band whose performances span more than five decades. There will also be four Broadway shows: “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (Jan 26, 2022), “Fiddler on the Roof” (Feb. 7, 2022), “South Pacific” (Feb. 17, 2022) and “Hairspray” (March 27, 2022).

Here are a few other shows that caught our eye:

Ballet Hispanico (Oct. 17): A renowned Latin dance group known for its innovative performances that bring Latino culture to life.

Russian National Orchestra (Feb. 18, 2022): This internationally touring orchestra has appeared in the music capitals of Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Velocity (March 24, 2022): James Devine, a Guinness World Record holder for “fastest feet in the world,” leads this Irish dancing group, which puts on a fast-paced and edgy performance.
