THE REP 2021-2022

Journey

Join Nebraska Rep on an incredible adventure through a magical forest, across a mighty sea to an ancient wall and back home again.

In September, venture into a magical forest of fairies and flirtation with William Shakespeare's popular comedy, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Christina Kirk makes her Rep directorial debut. 'Something wicked this way comes' in October, as we launch Lincoln's newest haunted attraction, ShakesFEAR. Hold on tight as The Rep scares you in the classiest way possible!

Take a voyage across the sea in November as Nebraska Rep and The St. Louis Black Repertory Company team up to present Dontrell, Who Kissed the Sea. The Black Rep's Producing Director, Ron Himes directs.

In December, The Rep debuts the world premiere of a new score for Thornton Wilder's classic play, Our Town. The composer, Craig Woerz, and Broadway musicians come to town for one-night only to perform the score for a live audience for the first time. Don't miss this special gala event at Lincoln's historic Rococo Theatre. All proceeds go to help The Rep in advancing its vision to be The Theatre of All Nebraska.™

In February, journey to an ancient wall as The Rep debuts The Way to The Way, a large-scale puppet spectacle based on Lao-Tzu's poetic masterpiece, the 'Tao Te Ching' (The Book of The Way).

In March, the journey continues with a poetic and powerful original production, Traveling Shoes. Finally, in April the journey ends in the small town of Grover's Corners with Thornton Wilder's classic play, Our Town. Arthur Feinsod directs.
