|Inspired by Shakespeare’s work, We create professional productions |
and accessible programs that ENGAGE, EDUCATE, and ENTERTAIN.
Nebraska Shakespeare has been blessed by Harold "Andy" W. Andersen and his love of Shakespeare.
We are honored to be in his thoughts as a farewell to the company that Andy and Marian have nurtured since 1986.
