Dear friends of Omaha Performing Arts,  

Happy Holidays!

It’s a special time of the year when togetherness and giving to others help us to remember and celebrate the season as we share cherished moments with family and friends. This December, there are many wonderful performances to enjoy with your loved ones. From JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR to A Drag Queen Christmas, Mariachi Herencia De México and the 35th Anniversary Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis, there are wonderful options. Visit to find out more about these performances and many others.

‘Tis the season of giving! We’re excited to participate in the Shine the Light on Hunger campaign. Last year, O-pa collected 250 pounds of non-perishable food items at the Orpheum and the Holland Performing Arts Center. The donations went to Food Bank for the Heartland. We’re honored to be involved in this community effort this year and appreciate our patrons who help make this initiative possible.

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, we hope you will consider a gift to Omaha Performing Arts. Your goodwill puts smiles on children’s faces when they attend their first-ever show during the Student Matinee Series or gives an aspiring dancer the opportunity to learn from artists in a master class. With your help, we can continue to expand our reach in the community and spread cheer all season long.

My warmest wises to you and your family and friends for the holidays and the New Year!
