Member and Non Members, are invited to get involved in out theater programs! From acting workshops to musical theater performances, we have options for everyone!  We are a community of actors that support each other’s growth.

Our Next Community Theater Performance is…

Spring Auditions: Seussical

Open to Members & Non, Ages 8+

The Staenberg Omaha JCC Performing Arts Department is excited to announce “Seussical” as our next performance! Our community musical theater program is open to members and non members, ages 8-108. We are a community of actors that support each other’s growth. Interested in joining our cast? We’d love to have you! You MUST register prior to participating. Space fills quickly. The quickest way to register is online through your Daxko account! You can also call (402) 334-6452 to register.

— About Seussical —
The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, including Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.

Registration is now FULL. A waitlist may be available.
