  • The Benson Theatre will attract tourists to midtown Omaha from throughout the region and beyond. It will truly add to our city's image as an arts and entertainment destination. Its planned assembly of 250 will provide up-and-coming regional and national artists with a much-needed venue to showcase their work and propel them forward. Because Benson has recently become known as a flourishing entertainment district, Benson Theatre's capability to host concerts, film presentations, comedy and theatrical productions will further produce and enhance the economic growth and development of the historic neighborhood and the entire metro area. As a founding donor, I wholeheartedly support the theatre's mission and operating structure.
