Just like we cannot spell community or playhouse without “u,” the Omaha Community Playhouse (OCP) could not operate without YOU! It takes hundreds of volunteers to ensure OCP’s success.
If you’re looking for a way to get more involved with the Omaha Community Playhouse and acting is not the route you want to take, we hope you will consider joining ACT II. This important group of volunteers helps further the mission of the Playhouse by assisting with fundraising and friendraising events throughout the season.
In 2011-2012, ACT II will host several unique events to benefit OCP. The group holds several luncheons each season, which offer a glimpse behind the scenes of upcoming productions. These are wonderful opportunities to hear the directors, meet the actors and see the sets before the shows open. In November, ACT II will be hosting a Holiday Tea Lecture/Luncheon event, which will bring in an expert on Charles Dickens to share insights into A Christmas Carol and other Dickens’ works. The ACT Out! Children’s Workshops in February will introduce young people to the stage. These were very popular last year and we anticipate an even larger enrollment this year. And of course, there is always the ACT II signature event, Destination: World’s Fare, the benefit that raises funds for OCP which will be in March.
All these activities require volunteer help and are fun and fulfilling. For more information about how you can join ACT II and participate in these events in our 2011-12 season, contact the development coordinator at (402) 553-4890, ext. 145.
