Discount playhouse tickets, free Science Cafe
|The Omaha Community Playhouse presents "A Night With the Family."|
Tickets, regularly $35, are only $23 for UNMC employees, faculty and students and can be reserved by calling Lora Kaup, OCP director of sales at (402) 553-4890, ext. 147. Performances are 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
The hilarious comedy, written by Matthew Ivan Bennett, is having its world premiere at the playhouse. The action follows a quirky family - a hippie father addicted to fake swear words, an overbearing mother with a French-Canadian ballet-dancing fiance, a coddled son prone to panic attacks and a level-headed daughter trying to make sense of it all.
