Recently James and I attended the Omaha Performing Arts 2015/2016 Season Announcement and I must say that there are lots of shows I hope to make it to. They are celebrating their 10th year with some amazing shows. You can subscribe to the separate series to attend each event in the series at a discounted rate.
There are 5 shows in the Broadway Series including Kinky Boots, Dirty Dancing, Disney Newsies, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella and The Phantom of the Opera. Broadway Series ticket holders get early access to specials The Book of Mormon and The Wizard of Oz. The Newsies gave us a brief preview on stage and the crowd was very excited to see them.
We also got to listen to a sampling of Phantom of the Opera. They were wonderful to listen to.
In the Showcase Series tickets are available for A Celtic Tenors Christmas, Jane Lynch, and Under the Streetlamp. Being the Christmas nut that I am I can’t wait to see A Celtic Tenors Christmas. I love Christmas music and could listen to it all year long.
Ramsey Lewis Electric Band, Gregory Porter, and Dee Dee Bridgewater and Irvin Mayfield will be playing in the Jazz Series.
The Dance Series will have 3 shows celebrating movement and magic featuring Shaping Sound, Sleeping Beauty, and Dance Theatre of Harlem.
The 3 shows in the Family Series are Cirque Mechanics Pedal Punk, Mummenschanz The Musicians of Silence, and Wild Kratts – Live!
National Geographic Live Series
The 3 National Geographic Live Shows will put you daringly close to tigers while watching On the Trail of Big Cats and you will hear amazing stories straight from Cory Richards- one of the world’s leading adventure and expedition photographers.

Some of the other great Specials that you won’t want to miss are One Man Breaking Bad, Vienna Boys Choir, Blaze, Mark Twain Tonight!, and Ballet Folkloric “Quetzal” de Veracruz.

One of the best benefits of purchasing a season ticket to any of the Series is the access to the shows at the 1200 Club. The 1200 Club is a cozy nightclub with table seating, light fare and a full bar that showcases the best jazz, blues and contemporary artists. You can see Kevin Eubanks from the Tonight Show on May 20th, other artists are Cyrus Chestnut Trio, Shemekia Copeland, Cyrille Aimee, Ester Rada and James Torme.
