The Omaha Community Playhouse is a performing arts organization that enhances quality of life through live theatre, professional touring and arts education.


HE OMAHA COMMUNITY PLAYHOUSE is the largest community theatre in the nation! Founded in 1924, the visionaries who started the Playhouse set our course to be different from the typical community theatre. Now in our 94th season, the Omaha Community Playhouse has taken community theatre to a level previously unachieved and unimaginable. From our national-caliber productions to a magnificent state-of-the art facility, Omaha’s playhouse has been the product of hard work, creative talent and continued generosity.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES: General Operating Support Rather than being restricted to a specific production

Our professional staff works side by side with emerging theatrical talents and thousands of community volunteers both onstage and backstage to produce yearround entertainment. We are also supported in this mission by community individuals and corporations who consider their generosity an investment in the culture of our city. This partnership between OCP and the greater Omaha community has given Omaha a unique position in the world of community theatre. While we celebrate the success of this theatre season after season, we remain always mindful of the community volunteers, local corporations and, of course, our loyal audience members and donors who brought this theatre to “Number 1.” This theatre has certainly come a long way since 1924, but the original commitment to presenting compelling work for the stage has always been and continues to be the number one priority of the Omaha Community Playhouse.

Planned Giving and Endowment Support Help secure the future of the
