Nebraska Homeschool is working with the Omaha Community Playhouse to bring more opportunities to the homeschool community.  Please read the following:



I hope you are staying warm as we enter this chilly new year. Here at the Playhouse we are excited about expanding our relationship with the homeschool population in the greater Omaha area! We have some exciting things in the works, but to get the ball rolling we want to offer you a few things that are still to come in our current season.

Attached to this email is a copy of the study guide for our upcoming production of Around the World in 80 Days (January 20th – February 12th). In this guide you will find great information on the background of the show, the culture discussed in the piece, and a glimpse into how we make stories come to life on our stage! There are also a couple of fun activities and some discussion questions for before and after seeing the production!

We would like to specifically invite homeschool families to come and see the show on Wednesday, February 1st @ 7:30pm as there will be a talk back following the performance. You are free to attend any other night you would like. This is not a private event for homeschool families, just a suggestion to help enhance your child’s experience at the theater.

If you are interested in attending the show with a group, we would suggest that you get a group together and take advantage of our group rates:

We also invite you to get a group together to join the fun this summer. For group rates on this production visit our website ( for details. Group tickets for musicals are different than those for plays so please read the information on the webpage entirely! Jana can help you with booking tickets for that show as well!

Congratulations! You made it to the end of the email! Thank you for reading and we hope you take advantage of these awesome opportunities! Never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about our productions or any of our educational opportunities.
