Nebraska Shakespeare creates entertaining, challenging productions as well as immersive educational experiences that connect our diverse community to Shakespeare's exploration of what it means to be human. On stage, in the classroom and through collaborative partnerships, we CREATE, ENGAGE and INSPIRE.
"Come early, bring your blankets, picnic baskets and families to enjoy a full evening of outdoor entertainment."
So urged the flyer for the first season of Shakespeare On The Green. In its history, Shakespeare On The Green has gained national recognition for its consistently high-quality productions, the beauty of Young Park setting and for steadily growing, enthusiastic audiences. Thanks to the dedicated core group of benefactors, volunteers and skilled artists, Shakespeare On The Green has become a summer tradition for the people of Omaha and the Great Plains region.
