Thursday night, our Penguin Project Artists and Mentors reunited for "Don't Stop Believing," the song we perform together at the end of each rehearsal and performance.

Lincoln Community Playhouse is all about human connection.

We will be together again soon.

Don't Stop Believing.

The mission of the Lincoln Community Playhouse is to positively transform the lives of individuals and profoundly change our community by providing the finest quality theatre experience in both process and production.

Update from Lincoln Community Playhouse

Lincoln Community Playhouse is foremost concerned with the health and safety of our theatre family. With the current status of the health crisis and the Governor's directive to limit public meetings to 10 or less for the next eight weeks, we have decided to take drastic, and heartbreaking, action.

The plan:
Cancel OLLI/Playhouse Radio Active Pirates of Penzance Sr.
Cancel Penguin Project Willy Wonka Jr.
Cancel Matilda

Please note the Pirates of Penzance has a senior citizen cast and senior citizen audience, Penguin Project is comprised of many children with immune deficiencies. Matilda is an extremely complicated show with a large cast featuring many children. It was felt the first two needed to be cancelled due to the populations served and the last one cancelled as too unwieldy to put on hold (and possibly cancelling at a later date).

Theatre is the great collaborative art form. We are all about the human connection. Right now the world is in disconnect. We will come back even stronger. Until then, we will be with you through social media.

As this decision severely impacts the financial health our Playhouse, I hope season ticket holders will consider their unused tickets as a donation to the Playhouse. If anyone would like to make a donation to help us through this, you can do so at Thank you.

We are ramping up plans for Season 75 and will let you know asap of the amazing shows for next year.

See you on the other side.
