Omaha Mobile Stage (OMS) lifts up local performing artists and builds community.
In 2022, the Omaha Mobile Stage (OMS) project transformed a repurposed 18-foot box truck into an accessible, adaptable and easily transportable stage, and launched its first season. OMS is a city-wide venue that provides community-driven entertainment and arts enrichment. Our events are always free and open to the public. Events are co-produced with neighborhoods, arts organizations, local artists and creatives, and schools.
OMS’s Sliding-scale Rental program, which includes a state-of-the-art mobile stage venue with professional sound and lighting equipment and event production services available for the general public
OMS’s Creative Placemaking program, which provides financial and production support for local performing artists and event planners who work in low- and moderate-income outdoor public spaces
Workforce Development program via paid internships and work referrals for aspiring stagehands and audio engineers
Your support provides a critical foundation for the OMS project to be fully realized, adding value and vibrancy to the city we love.
In 2024, the OMS Youth Talent Show series will take place at during 8 preliminary events throughout the metro and a Final Night in downtown Omaha. We are proud to re-establish the metro-wide legacy of Omaha’s Goodfellows Show Wagon, a former City of Omaha program that ran for nearly 60 years starting in the 1950s.
OMS events entertain thousands of residents and visitors annually. These events help establish safe outdoor community spaces. These gatherings also increase the vibrancy, connection, and economic and social wellbeing for residents and businesses along the metro’s historic and revitalizing main streets and park systems.
We overcome common challenges to increasing access to the arts and creating arts-based gatherings in neighborhood public spaces. These challenges include prohibitive ticket costs, limited arts funding to neighborhood-led initiatives, and lack of transportation to traditional venues.
