Omaha Performing Arts has enabled me to follow my ambitions of becoming a professional musician and artist! Their support is one reason why I am pursuing my dreams today.

By joining the Legacy Circle, your gift will enable a young child to experience her first show, an aspiring actor to learn from a Broadway professional or help a school bring theater and music into the classroom.

Your membership in the Legacy Circle will be recognized in O-pa’s annual publications. Additionally, you will be invited to a special event honoring our most inspired donors.
