Productions


We are so grateful to our community for engaging in theatre at the Omaha Community Playhouse during this pandemic—however different it may have looked.

We hope you will stick with us through one more wave of changes. All signs indicate we are in the home stretch of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a theatre, we could not be more excited to get back to “business as usual.” But we still need to safely navigate these upcoming months.

We have made changes to our 2021 spring programming that will allow us to continue offering live theatre to our community while mitigating risk. We pushed the opening of our 2021 productions to the end of February, to allow more time for public health to improve. We have also replaced large-cast productions with small-cast shows to better protect our actors, crew and audience and to allow for ample social distancing during rehearsals and performances. These decisions were made after consulting with local health department officials and medical experts.

We are confident that these programming changes, combined with our enhanced safety precautions, will allow us to continue bringing our art to the Omaha community in the safest way possible. We appreciate your ongoing support and can’t wait to see you again in the spring!

Our lineup for the remainder of the 2020/21 season looks like this:

Join The Candy Project, friends of OCP, for a special presentation of Gutenberg! The Musical! A pair of aspiring playwrights audition their newest work—a big, splashy musical about the inventor of the movable-type printing press—for an audience of potential investors. This two-man musical spoof offers an unending supply of enthusiasm and laughs.
