Benson Theatre’s mission is to engage, enhance and enrich the community through educational and artistic experiences.

Who we are


Call for volunteers!

Art pulls communities together, binding our creativity to our roots in ways that can fuel change, bolster resolve, and inspire new ideas. Be a part of our mission to enrich and engage the communities of Omaha and offer a safe space for everyone by becoming a volunteer at Benson Theatre. There are many ways to give your time, from ushering patrons to their seats for a local, one-of-a-kind show, to setting up our beautifully restored theatre space for movies, performances, concerts, classes, and more. Discover a new way to give back to your community in the heart of historic Benson! We can't wait to hear from you.

If you are interested in joining our volunteer group, please email volunteer@bensontheatre.org, or click "Volunteer" below.
