Free and open to the public, with an opportunity for donations. No tickets or reservations are necessary.The New Timey Radio Hour is a podcast for new theatrical scripts. Their goal is to get more new plays onto stages throughout the nation, while producing a professional and entertaining product. The featured script is Crash! Boom! Pow!

Crash! Boom! Pow!, is a dark and kinetic play from the minds of Ben Beck and Molly Welsh. Crash! Boom! Pow! was selected for performance in the 2009 Great Plains Theatre Festival, and will feature members of its original cast, including Nick Zadina, Erika Zadina and Deborah Krambeck. It features scenes of
comic book adventure and macabre comedy.

21 & Over was conceptualized by OCP’s new Resident Director Amy Lane to introduce a new type of production and, in turn, a new audience to the Omaha Community Playhouse. “This program is designed to target both a younger and more diverse audience base,” said Lane. “It also provides practical training for interns, and it challenges the Playhouse artistically in expanding a theatrical vocabulary to include edgier and more contemporary works.”

The 21 & Over productions are intended for a mature audience and discretion is advised. For more information on 21 & Over and other OCP alternative programs, contact Amy Lane, Resident Director, at alane@omahaplayhouse.com or (402) 553-4890, ext. 164.
