President's Message

Dear O-pa community, 

Perhaps my greatest joy last year was seeing so many of you as we returned to Broadway and live performances. There’s just nothing to compare to the electricity of experiencing an amazing production together. From free summer concerts at Jazz on the Green and Music at Miller Park, to sold-out shows and our Education and Engagement activities, we've welcomed tens of thousands back to our venues to experience music, dance, comedy, Broadway and so much more.

Our 22/23 Broadway season, sponsored by CHI Health, will kick off in October with AIN'T TOO PROUD: The Life and Times of the Temptations and continue with smashes like SIX the Musical and Disney's FROZEN. It's not too late to become a subscriber and pick your seats for all the shows, or choose three or more with a Choose Your Own subscription.


You’re also invited to the Holland Music Club every second Friday of the month. Enjoy dinner, drinks and a unique atmosphere where performers and audience members connect for a more personal listening experience.


You can see all the Broadway, music, comedy, family shows and other performances coming up on Ticket Omaha, our official ticket retailer.


Construction on our newest live music venue Steelhouse Omaha continues on schedule and on budget. It will open on May 12, 2023! Surrounded by Dodge and Capitol, 11th and 12th Streets — the venue lies in the very heart of the extensive renovation of Omaha’s downtown. We recently announced our partnership with Live Nation, the world's leading live entertainment company, who will be the exclusive promoter for the new music venue. We’re excited to bring the high-caliber artists they work with to our 3,000-capacity venue that's unlike any other in town. Fans will finally see shows that previously used to bypass the region!

There’s certainly a lot to look forward to — including seeing you at a performance soon!


With gratitude for your continued support,


Joan H. Squires
