OmniArts nebraska to present its first annual benefit, “A Holiday Centerpiece” Thursday, December 15
OmniArts nebraska, a new Lincoln performing arts company, will be presenting its first annual seasonal benefit, “A Holiday Centerpiece,” at the Unitarian Church, 6300 O St., on Thursday, December 15th, from 5:30 to 8:30. The event is a fundraiser for the company and will feature a performance, silent auction of art by local artists, and waffles, by the Waffleman.
In August of 2011, OmniArts nebraska made its formal debut with a two-week residency at the Haymarket Theatre, where they presented two original productions, the lonely book, and Marginalia @ 40. Co-founders/Directors, Daniel Kubert and Dustin Witte, are now excited to present this benefit, as their company moves forward, and prepare to announce its first full season of productions (2012-2013).
The performance will feature original movement and choreography, stories, some well-known holiday songs, words of wisdom, and a few surprises. The talented cast of “A Holiday Centerpiece includes Andy Dillehay, Elizabeth Govaerts, Daniel Kubert, Vince Learned, Ciara McCormack, Corey McKenna, Jamie Pruden, Ladd Wendelin, and Dustin Witte. The performance is based on gathering together during this time of year to share with each other many things; generosity, laughter, fellowship, compassion, and wisdom.
Audience members are invited to bring a written or visual representation of words of wisdom that they have learned or live by. These will be incorporated into the performance.
“A Holiday Centerpiece” will be presented Thursday, December 15 at the Unitarian Church, 6300 O St. Doors open at 5:30 for waffles and the silent auction, with the performance starting at 6:30. The cost is $6.00 per person. For more information call 402.474.5745 or find OmniArts nebraska on Facebook.
