There are so many notable upcoming performances in the Omaha area that I’m going to offer you an overview of the March shows you won’t want to miss. Get your tickets for these shows now because waiting too long can result in one of those annoying moments when you realize that the show you want to see is sold out. Nobody likes that moment.
The Fantastiks at the Omaha Community Playhouse
You may have heard of this musical -or you may have already seen it once or twice- since it’s touted as the “longest running musical in history” by Ticket Omaha. This show runs until March 18th. Choose a matinee or evening performance, but be sure to flash your student ID if you have one because that will save you nearly half the cost of the ticket. Buy tickets.
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying at the Bellevue Little Theatre
Not only is this a great musical, but venturing into Bellevue will pay off with ticket prices that are quite reasonable ($18 for adults, $15 for seniors, $9 for students). Opening on March 16th, the show runs until April 1st. Buy tickets.
Mozart’s Grand Quintet for Piano & Winds at First United Methodist Church
The Omaha Symphony presents this ensemble performance, perfect for a Sunday afternoon (particularly if you are as crazy about Mozart as I am). This will prove to be an interesting performance, especially considering the venue. Buy tickets.
Luna Negra Dance Theater at The Orpheum
If you have never attended a dance series performance at The Orpheum, you’re missing out. I suggest orchestra seating if you can swing it, but for a performance like this you can probably sit anywhere in the house. There is only one performance for this show: March 30th at 8:00 PM, but you can catch them the following night at the Holland if you can’t get tickets to The Orpheum performance. Buy tickets.
Don’t forget about the many other venues around town. If you’re looking to attend a play, musical, concert, or even slam poetry, Omaha has you covered.
