The Blue Barn Theatre (BBT) is the only full-time professional theatre in Omaha, with a renowned artistic product but a dilapidated rental theatre space lacking proper air handling, restrooms, accessibility, and a leaky ceiling. BBT had a bold vision to build a standalone theatre– a vision that complemented the city’s growth mission.
Omaha is an exciting city that carefully and meticulously plots its development. It is an “intentional city,” striving to be unique, diverse, and welcoming. As discussion began regarding a permanent home for the Blue Barn Theatre, RSC jumped at the opportunity to assist in developing the funding campaign that would usher in an exciting new era for theater in Omaha.
