Tickets for Season 14-OWH


  • April 27 & 28 – Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center, Council Bluffs
  • May 11 & 12 – Orpheum Theater, Omaha

Join us for the world premiere of Cinderella, our magical new full-length story ballet! It’s an uplifting rendition of a story beloved across generations and cultures: an affirmation that good things come in due season.

Choreographer Erika Overturff summons all the artistry of classical ballet – with its brilliant dancing, spectacular settings, and rich costuming – to whirl the heroine on a journey that is both intimate and grand. There’s charm, humor, and – of course – a little magic!

Appealing on many levels, our Cinderella at heart is an inspiring story of an under-appreciated young woman who discovers that her own natural kindness and inner beauty have rewarded her with the power to change her destiny.

All programming is subject to change.
