SHAKESPEARE & THE WILD WEST
You've heard of Shakespeare in Love? We follow Nebraska Shakespeare to Valentine, the heart of cowboy country, for a performance of Twelfth Night. The company has been around since 1987, creating year-round, high quality Shakespeare productions. And then they head off to Omaha for an acting workshop with middle school students.
BLIZZARD OF 1949
Cowboys share their tales of surviving a mid-century blizzard considered one of the worst to hit the northern plains.
MUSIC FROM ASHES
12 million years ago volcanic ash buried alive elephants, camels and rhinos in Northeast Nebraska and today their skeletons are still being uncovered. Inspired by this cataclysmic event composer Rusty Banks wrote a score for the Nebraska Chamber Players' 15 anniversary.
