Dear friends of Omaha Performing Arts,
As the fall approaches and with it, the new season
, there’s added excitement in the air at Omaha Performing Arts. We’re preparing to present a wonderful array of performances while in our community, students, parents and educators are preparing for the school year.
Omaha Performing Arts has its own focus on education with programs to enhance and expand appreciation for the arts. Our educational programs and community involvement efforts
include encouraging area schools to take advantage of the Student Matinee Series
, which consists of special productions by various artists and ensembles such as Black Violin
offered only to school groups. Regional high schools are invited to participate in the second year of the Nebraska High School Theatre Awards program
, which culminates in a Tony Award®-style showcase in spring 2015. We’re doubling the number of participating high schools this season, and up to 40 schools will be able to register for this exciting program beginning August 15.
Omaha Performing Arts’ 2014/2015 Season includes amazing productions such as the RADIO CITY CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR Starring THE ROCKETTES
, the Tony®-winning Broadway musical PIPPIN
, the return of dance company Pilobolus
, the jazz saxophonist David Sanborn
, and the former NFL star Terry Bradshaw
. The season starts in October with BLUE MAN GROUP
, An Evening With David Sedaris
are available now and Single Tickets for the entire season go on sale soon. I look forward to seeing you at the Orpheum Theater and Holland Performing Arts Center this season. Come join us – we have much Magic to Do!
