Crane River Theater is established around the belief that lifting up the arts will only help in creating a richer and more vibrant community. Our mission is to serve the community of Kearney and surrounding areas as a professional theater production company providing a home for the presentation, education and promotion of the arts. Crane River Theater provides the unique quality of using professionals from across the country and mixing them with local artists to create innovative productions. There are few opportunities for resident performers to work alongside professionals, and we hope to afford them that opportunity. We hope to build on the momentum that the community has already shown towards the arts, thus allowing Central Nebraska to become a destination for theater, music and dance. Crane River Theater intends to produce a contemporary play, mainstream musical, and children’s production each summer at various venues throughout the community. Kearney has a wealth of underutilized performance spaces, and we hope to fill those stages with exciting and engaging theater.
