LINCOLN, Neb.: Nebraska Repertory Theatre has announced changes to their spring 2021 season, transitioning from in-person to virtual theatre offerings.
“For the safety of our audience, actors, and crew, we have transitioned our 2021 spring season online, with virtual streaming performances,” said executive director Christina Kirk in a statement. “It was a difficult decision, but we feel it is the right one for the current times.” Kirk added that all three shows have been professionally recorded and that the season will be offered to audiences free of charge.
The season will begin with the devised theatre piece A Thousand Words, streaming from Feb. 17-21. Directed by artistic director Andy Park, A Thousand Words features large-scale puppetry and spectacle.
Samm-Art Williams’s Home will run April 7-11, and is presented as part of Nebraska Rep’s multi-year collaboration with the St. Louis Black Repertory Company. Home will be directed by Ron Himes, the founder and producing director of the Black Rep.
The season will conclude with Dracula: Mina’s Quest, Stephen Dietz’s adaptation of Bram Stoker’s classic. Dracula: Mina’s Quest runs May 6-9, directed by David Long.
For patrons who purchased season tickets, information on redeeming passes is forthcoming.
Nebraska Rep aims to create innovative theatrical experiences to ignite the imagination, promote an inclusive community, and inspire the next generation of theatre artists.
