Fun Home Programming Brings Community Together
This fall, OCP partnered with Orchestra Sponsor, UNMC, to provide the Omaha community with special programming opportunities surrounding the production of our season opener, Fun Home. Opening night festivities included live drawings by a local graphic artist, an appearance by the Dundee Book Company and information tables staffed by UNMC and the Kim Foundation with information on mental health and suicide. Throughout the run of the production, OCP hosted three post-show Talk Back panel discussions on the topics of mental health and suicide, LGBTQIA+ and graphic novels. The programming series was capped off with a Science Café event held at the Slowdown that covered the psychology of stress, pain and suffering. Thank you to all in our community who attended these special programming activities. We are incredibly grateful to all of our community partners on who contributed to this important project. We would like to extend a special thanks to UNMC for helping to encourage dialogue and shed light on these challenging topics in our community.
