Mission & History

The Nebraska Communities Playhouse, a 501(c)(3); entirely volunteer operated organization, strives to enhance the quality of life in the southeast Nebraska communities that it serves. NCP provides quality theatrical and other performing arts experiences to local audiences as well as attracting patrons from not only Nebraska, but the greater Midwest, across the country and globally, doing so primarily through a relationship with its tenant, The STAGE Theater. The playhouse trains, educates and collaborates with performers, directors, technicians, artisans and other community volunteers, providing an opportunity for them to demonstrate and improve their skills by participating in live, on-stage productions. In addition, the playhouse leverages its relationships with other performing arts organizations to support and enhance the quality of life for its audiences. NCP believes that all people, regardless of age, income or ability, should have access to affordable, high-quality theatrical entertainment.
