“An Omaha Institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

We have seen many productions there, and all were first rate. This is an excellent community theater, maybe the best of its kind in the country. Besides dramas and musicals, it has also hosted great musical reviews. If you are in town, it is definitely worth checking out.

“Can't be beat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The largest community playhouse (by season ticket holders) in the US. And there is a reason. The quality is as good as traveling Broadway productions. In fact a recent production of Les Miz was better than a touring company I saw a year ago.

“Biggest and Best Community Theater in America”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The Omaha Community Playhouse is the largest community theater in America. With 2 stages in the Playhouse, the flexibility in programming abounds. From musicals with large casts, complicated sets and brilliant costuming, to the annual rendition of A Christmas Carol on the mainstage, to smaller casts and off-the-beaten path material, there's something for everyone throughout each season at the Playhouse. The venue is lovely, the acting superb. Henry Fonda and Marlin Brando got their start on the stage at the Omaha Community Playhouse. It makes a great 'date night' or 'family outing', with evening performances as well as weekend matinees.

“What Talent Omaha Has”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

The Omaha Community Playhouse offers a variety of shows each year and each one exhibits talent that is outstanding. After the performance the actors/actresses line up in the lobby to meet the attendees. People come from miles away to attend the performances.
