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 involved with The Presenters has let me make great friends with others who feel passionately about supporting the arts in Omaha. It's fun to know we have a hand in programs that enrich the lives of young people."

Beth Wilson, member

"Every season we have celebrated the Holidays with an amazing performance. The Ten Tenors sang 'Happy Birthday' to me. Yeah, that was awesome."

Kate Grabill, member

"It's a pleasure to work with Omaha Performing Arts staff, because they view every performance as an opportunity to create a lifelong connection between our community and performing arts."

Jennifer Zatechka, member
