Owner description: The Omaha Community Playhouse is proud to be the nation's largest community theatre featuring over 10 productions per year. Our diverse shows are propelled by the talent of local volunteers. There's hardly a weekend when we don't have a performance taking place, so book tickets today! You won't be disappointed.

I was able to recently see two productions at the Playhouse within days of each other. "Freud's Last Session" in their smaller black box space, and "A Christmas Carol" on their mainstage. Both productions were visually perfect, well staged, well cast, and expertly executed. And the rest of the announced season holds an excellent variety of productions. Their facility is gorgeous and their ticket prices quite competitve. It is easy to see why this is the largest non-Equity theater company in the United States.

We love the Playhouse. We have had season tickets for ten years. These productions are up to the quality of the best professional productions I have seen in New York. I have two regrets: first, we have been so busy this year we haven't had time to attend as we have in the past; second, more people don't realize the great treasure of this tremendous gift to the Omaha community.

This theatre puts on world class performances all year long! From modern, Tony-winning musicals and plays to classics that everyone can re-enjoy, the Omaha Community Playhouse is phenomenal!

There are two theatres and multiple recital/rehearsal rooms. The Howard Drew Theatre brings you the more edgy shows that leave you thinking after each performance. The Hawks Mainstage Theatre provides large productions that are fun for all generations.

Some favorites from the past are Legally Blonde the Musical, Evil Dead the Musical, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Chicago and many more!

Saw the show "All Night Strut" last week. A musical review with dance and a band equal and better than many I've seen. This show was excellent with big voices and incredible staging. They say the Omaha Playhouse is the largest community theater in the US. You would NEVER know this was "community" theater. Professional and entertaining in every way! Bravo!
