“Being so near such incredible talent and the goosebumps on the arms, tears in the eyes and laughs. Oh yes, and our GORGEOUS Orpheum Theatre. Can’t recreate that at home.”-Melissa Bath Sherlock, Patron
Season Reveal - March 2020
We can’t help but ponder about what we’ve missed most when it comes to live performances and entertainment in 2020. As we head into 2021, we asked our patrons, volunteers and staff what they've missed and what they’re looking forward to in the new year. Here’s what they had to say.
“I miss seeing actors and singers rehearsing in the studio at the Holland and on stage at the Orpheum and getting those behind-the-scenes glimpses of life on the road.” – Aletha Kuhn, O-pa HR
“I miss the feeling of excitement as the show is about to start. It's such a magical thing to see theater & entertainment live and share that experience with others. I really love musicals so I can't wait for Broadway tours to return to Omaha!” - Cindy Vanek, O-pa Office Coordinator
Like you all we are truly looking forward to when live performances fully return to Omaha Performing Arts. Beyond in-person experiences we’ve provided online programming for your enjoyment, but we know it’s not the same. Studies show that during live performances the heartbeats of audience members sync up. How awesome will it be once we can gather again for our hearts to beat as one? Until then, we are grateful for all the beautiful memories created and shared through the arts!
