Orpheum Theater

View Map

Professionally managed by Omaha Performing Arts, Omaha's celebrated Orpheum Theater has served as the home of the finest in local and national performing arts for nearly a century, including the best of Broadway's national touring companies. Located in Downtown Omaha, the Orpheum underwent a major $10 million renovation in 2002 and the ornate splendor of this magnificent theater was enhanced to better serve patrons and artists. A cornerstone of Omaha’s cultural history, this former vaudeville house was constructed in 1927. Recent renovations have restored its ornate splendor - and enhanced acoustics and views. Features a refurbished 2,600-seat proscenium theater. Accessible.
