Colin Roberts - Everyman Stories

October 21, 2022 - 6 PM

Hello! My name is Colin Roberts and I am a local singer/songwriter from Blair, NE. I have been performing live music in and around the Omaha / Lincoln areas nearly my entire life.

In 2018 I attended a songwriting event in Benson, and ended up writing one of my favorite songs to date – Memories. Since that event I have been songwriting weekly, and have been writing and releasing original music ever since.

Why is any of this relevant to you? Well, I will be hosting my very first ever concert – Everyman Stories – at The Benson on Friday, October 21st.

I would like to formally invite you to join me for an intimate night of live music where I’ll be performing original songs and sharing the stories behind them. The event will provide a raw look into the highs and lows that have inspired my songwriting including the journey from addiction to sobriety, from love to loss, and from grief to healing.

Doors open at 6:30pm and the show will begin promptly at 7:30pm. We have a limited number of seats, and I want to make sure that you’re able to attend if you have the evening open. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door and can be purchased online at the link above.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hosting you in Benson.

Masquerade and screening of The Shining

A collaboration between Benson Theatre, Necronomicast Podcast, and the 402 Collective.
Masquerade and interactive movie experience
Hosted by Brian Corey (Necronomicast Podcast)

Come and play with us at Benson Theatre as we throw the year’s most ghoulish masquerade ball and unleash Stanley Kubrick’s horror masterpiece “The Shining” for a special engagement screening. Benson Theatre and “The Shining” have a meaningful history, as we were granted permission by Mr. King himself to adapt his novel to the stage for the very first time in 2014. Now, we are bringing the film to our screen, and turning our theatre into the Overlook ballroom for one night only. Brian J. Corey, the voice of the Necronomicast Podcast, will be our host for the evening, with special thanks to our friends at the 402 Collective for helping to provide a frighteningly immersive experience. Cocktails, ghost stories, elevators of blood, and more than a little mayhem are in store. Come dressed as your favorite Stephen King characters, just don’t forget your mask!
