The Mission
Nebraska Repertory Theatre creates innovative theatrical experiences to ignite the imagination, challenge the heart, promote an inclusive community and inspire the next generation of theatre artists.
ABIGAIL/1702

by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, directed by the Nebraska Rep’s new artistic director, Andy Park.

Ten years after The Crucible‘s infamous seductress, Abigail Williams, danced with the devil in Salem, darkness returns. As she cares for a young sailor on the brink of death, a mysterious stranger from Abigail’s past catches up with her, sending her on one final, suspense-filled quest for redemption.

THE SERPENT

by Jean-Claude van Itallie

directed by Wesley Broulik
This brilliant and groundbreaking tour de force in contemporary improvisational theatre explores the Book of Genesis, and relates it to our modern experience with an eloquence and power which had earned it recognition as a milestone of American drama. Most of the work is choreographed movement, pantomime, human sounds and music made by bells, horns, whistles, tambourines and other hand-held instruments.

THE HOLIDAY CABARET

conceived and directed by

Andy Park
Audiences will be treated to holiday standards performed by favorite past Rep performers, emerging artists and surprise guests. To headline this year’s Cabaret, the Rep welcomes Chicago’s premiere, sweet-singing female trio, THE LAKESHORE DOLLS. The Cabaret will get everyone in the holiday spirit with this toe-tapping, uplifting night of song, good cheer and revelry.

December 13 – 17

The state’s only regional professional theatre will offer a six-production season beginning September 30, 2017. Tickets are available now through the Lied Center Ticket Office at 301 North 12th Street, 402-472-4747 or 800-432-3231 Monday through Friday from 11:00 AM – 5:30 PM, or online at liedcenter.org (see link below).
The Nebraska Repertory Theatre, affiliated with the professional Actors’ Equity Association, has been on hiatus since 2014. A new collaboration between the Nebraska Repertory Theatre and the Lied Center for Performing Arts, and a merger of the Nebraska Rep and University Theatre begins this fall. The Nebraska Rep, over a nine-month season during the academic year, will further expand opportunities for audiences and students to engage with professional artists.
