Dear friends of Omaha Performing Arts,

Thanks to all of you who attend our productions, the Holland Center and Orpheum have made national prominence. We’re proud to announce that the Holland Performing Arts Center and Orpheum Theater were ranked among the Top Stops in the United States. According to Venues Today’s year-end report, the Holland Center was ranked 7th and the Orpheum Theater was ranked 13th among theatres of similar capacity. This important recognition is a testament to everyone who comes to our performances, and helps us to secure future shows and artists by demonstrating what a great audience we have!

We had an especially busy holiday season this year with almost 50,000 people joining us in November to see the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and nearly 30,000 people attending in December for a wide variety of holiday performances. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the holidays.

The busy performance schedule continues with several January events including José James in the 1200 Club and the touring production of CAMELOT with wonderful music by Lerner and Lowe. Growing up, I almost wore out the original cast recording and I can’t wait to hear all those familiar songs in the new updated version. In February, I’m looking forward to performances by Sinbad and David Sanborn at the Holland Center, and the return of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet at the Orpheum.

We hope you’ll join us this winter and spend a warm evening at the Holland Center and Orpheum!
