This is an old school theatre, perfect for musical and dramatic performances, as well as spoken word settings (like stand up comedy). I've sat in the expensive seats and the cheap seats and have enjoyed myself every time. The interior is beautiful and the acoustics...More

We have season tickets and often invite family along for a special night out. Preformances are professionally done and the building itself is worth a visit. Beautifully restored.

Be transported back in time with an evening at the Orpheum, where it feels like live entertainment deserves dressy clothes and dinner out!

Having grown up in Omaha, I clearly remember the sad state of the facility back in the early 70's. The good news that they have again updated it for this excellent time of the year...!

There is no parking in front of the Orpheum Theatre on 16th street, so you can be dropped off there. The doors open one hour before the show so you can wait inside the lobby for your husband to park the car.
