The Presenters


The Presenters is an enthusiastic volunteer group whose members donate their time and talents to support Omaha Performing Arts' mission. The group raises awareness and funds through events, which contribute to our Education and Community Engagement programming. 

"Being able to attend the shows with the family and listening to the soundtracks afterward so cherished moments. We are so fortunate as a community to have these performances available for our viewing pleasure"

Chad Rutar, president


"As a Presenter, I have developed friendships with terrific people who believe, as I do, that now more than ever, we need the arts to remind us and help us connect with the beauty inherent in us as human beings"

Tracy Hoye, member
