Together Again: A Musical Extravaganza

Come join us for a spectacular musical event celebrating our ability to be TOGETHER AGAIN!

When: Don’t know! When the all clear has been sounded, we’ll put on this event as soon as possible. We will start the reunion with a GALA OPENING NIGHT on a Friday night TBA. Tickets are now on sale! We will also be performing show only on the following Saturday and Sunday (tickets on sale at a later date).

Our talented theatre family has been preparing solos, duets, and ensemble numbers in their homes and are ready to bring these fabulous musical numbers to the Playhouse stage. Lincoln Community Playhouse has always been a home for the community, and it seems appropriate we celebrate, as a community, the return of human connection with a festive gathering.

GALA OPENING NIGHT on a Friday TBA - Bar opens at 5:30 p.m., food served at 6:00 p.m., show at 7:00 p.m. This special gala event featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres, champagne toast, reserved seating, and amazing musical entertainment by the Playhouse theatre family. Tickets: $100.

Reservations are being taken now online or by mailing a check to P.O. Box 6426, Lincoln, NE 68506. When we are able to announce the performance dates, we will call you for specific seat reservations. PLEASE NOTE: These tickets are NOT refundable. If you are not able to make it to the gala event, you may use your ticket for the Saturday or Sunday performance (general admission - show only). If you are still unable to attend, we will issue you a tax form for the full amount you paid. Revenue from Together Again: A Musical Extravaganza is being used to keep the Playhouse open during the health crisis.

Reserve your tickets today for the gala opening night of Together Again: A Musical Extravaganza, help the Playhouse, and set your sights on brighter days ahead.
