From public art displays spread throughout the city to contemporary art centers, award-winning museums, local galleries and hands-on interactive art houses, Omaha's creative spirit is contagious. That spirit can also be found onstage. The Holland Performing Arts Center is an acoustical wonder, the perfect place to listen to the Omaha Symphony and some of the country's top performers. The historic Orpheum Theater provides a stage for local and Broadway productions. And the Omaha Community Playhouse, the largest community theater in the country, thrives on creating its own high-quality brand of theater.
