Dear O-pa Community,  

Omaha Performing Arts will suspend all performances at the Orpheum Theater and Holland Performing Arts Center beginning March 14, 2020 through April 30, 2020. The extension is in response to a Douglas County Health Department directive prohibiting gatherings of more than 10 people during the ongoing public health emergency surrounding COVID-19 for that period.

All performances of Disney's THE LION KING from April 15 - May 10, 2020 will be canceled. This change also includes the sensory friendly performance scheduled for April 25, 2020. Our team will contact patrons who purchased tickets through Ticket Omaha with their options by April 15.

Refunds are only available for tickets purchased directly through Ticket Omaha. O-pa is not responsible for refund practices put in place by secondary ticket providers or other sources. All performances for the remaining shows in O-pa’s Broadway season are expected to go on as scheduled.    

Affected shows include:

  • Rise Above: 1st Anniversary Gala - postponed, new date to come

The health and safety of our patrons, artists, staff, and volunteers are most important. We know that the role the arts and live performances play in raising spirits and inspiring us are more important than ever during difficult times. Please be assured that we will work diligently to reschedule affected artists and performances where applicable.

We ask all ticket holders for patience during what could be a lengthy rescheduling process. As with all performances, O-pa will update ticket holders directly by email as details emerge and will share information via email, by telephone and social media.

O-pa will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves, consulting with local, state and national health agencies to ensure the health and well-being of all before anything else. We look forward to welcoming back our community to enjoy the experience of sharing productions and artists live on stage.

Thank you for your patience and your continued support.
