This Year's Project: Heating & Cooling improvements

About Our Organization

Producing 70 events with attendance of more than 7,500, Community Players is one of Nebraska's most active performing arts organizations. Community Players connects our community through opportunities to perform, learn, collaborate, and be entertained. Classic shows, new works, educational programs, and special events inspire our community to be a better place through the arts. Five shows in our regular season of musicals and plays bring together performers from throughout Southeast Nebraska. Three family/youth productions featuring young performers educates the next generation. Several other special live events and collaborations expand the impact of the theatre. The lights never go out at Community Players.

Current Project: Heating & Cooling improvements

This year, Community Players is raising funds to replace the heating and cooling system that keeps our actors and volunteers comfortable and safe in our green room, where they work so hard to entertain you and their community! 

The $10,000 we hope to raise would cover the cost to replace our current electric furnace, air handler, and all associated equipment in our backstage area, which sees a rotating cast of over 200 volunteers every year, including large groups of young students. Our current unit was installed in 1988 and has already outlived its prime by at least 10 years! It has trouble keeping up in the summer months, as casts of over forty actors in elaborate costumes can surely attest.

Our theatre continues to thrive, innovate, and provide a valuable place for connections because of our volunteers, and we have been working to make various improvements to their backstage space of late, but have not been able to take on a project of this size and price tag without your support. Let's keep it comfortable backstage for the lifeblood of Community Players, so they can keep entertaining you for years to come!
