Merryman Performing Arts Center
Crane River Theater was created to serve the state of Nebraska and surrounding areas as a professional theater production company providing a home for the presentation, education and promotion of the arts. We provide the unique quality of using professionals from across the country and mixing them with area artists to create exciting and innovative productions. We have already had the honor of working with actors, directors and designers from twenty-eight states, and are excited to share their talents with all of Nebraska.
Backstage with Crane River Theater is an educational opportunity created to provide opportunities for high school students across the state to receive a backstage look at a professional production and take part in a series of theatrical workshops. The participating production for 2016 will be Oklahoma! Available workshops will range from acting, musical theater and dance to video production and stage combat. We also offer workshops that focus on the technical side of theater which will include make up for the actor, directing and the ultimate design workshop. It is sure to be an invaluable experience for any student with an interest in the arts. Dates for the Backstage Workshop are set for August 5 and 6.
