About Omaha Theater Company

For almost 70 years, the Omaha Theater Company has served children and families in the Omaha area and beyond. Families come together not just for an hour or two of quality entertainment, but also to laugh, cry, sigh and witness the magic of theater and its power to bring people together in a shared experience.
Today, the children who once passed through our doors in wide-eyed wonderment now bring their own families to share in the joy that is The Rose. We are proud to have become a tradition for so many families in the Omaha area and a fixture in the childhood of so many of our area’s young people. Although much has changed over the past years, we remain dedicated to our original mission: to enrich the lives of children and families through live theater arts and education.
