A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY:
"I find it difficult to put into a few words the impact the Omaha Community Playhouse has had on me. My life has been enriched as an audience member, a student in acting and dance classes, an actor in performances, a member of a community of volunteer and professional folks. [ . . . ] We have an opportunity here in Omaha to participate in a theatrical organization unlike any other. We volunteers get to work with professional directors, musical directors, choreographers, set designers, sound and lighting technical staff, costumers, etc., on two magnificent stages. [ . . . ] As an actor, each new script is an opportunity to learn and an opportunity to meet new fabulous people. My theatre friends are family. And I am a more confident, outgoing, educated, appreciative community member because of all of the time I have spent at the Playhouse. Still, when I can sit back at the theatre, lose the rest of the world, and take in a show that moves me, makes me think, makes me laugh, cry and takes me through some sort of cathartic arc with the rest of the audience, that's the best. Second only to being on stage, as a part of a huge group of folks who are creating that magic for the audience." - Omaha Community Playhouse volunteer and patron
