What We Do
Nebraska Shakespeare believes that Shakespeare’s life-affirming works are essential to broadening the cultural and educational environments of our community. We strive to produce innovative professional Shakespeare productions and educational forums.
Nebraska Shakespeare was founded in September 1986 and performed its inaugural Shakespeare on the Green production in June of 1987.
Our vision is to find ways to make Shakespeare a part of our society beyond the literature and drama classrooms and, for this reason, we provide opportunities for continued interaction and learning about the bard that are both free and accessible to a diverse audience.
We are focused on delivering experiences that are true to the text and intent of Shakespeare while creatively and dynamically relevant to contemporary life. Our success is achieved through collaboration with Creighton University, University of Nebraska at Omaha, the City of Omaha, generous benefactors, talented artists, seasoned staff and 200+ dedicated volunteers.
