A romantic comedy is the latest production to take the stage at the Omaha Community Playhouse.
“Outside Mullingar” follows Anthony and Rosemary, two introverts who grew up on neighboring farms in rural Ireland.
Rosemary secretly fell in love with Anthony at age 6, but after a bout with heartbreak, Anthony swore off women forever.
The now middle-aged pair must overcome their own aloofness – as well as a family property dispute – to finally find their way to one another.
“Outside Mullingar” will run in the Omaha Community Playhouse’s Howard Drew Theatre through March 13. Performances are set for 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays.
Tickets start at $36 with prices varying by performance. Tickets may be purchased at the OCP Box Office, 6915 Cass St., in Omaha; by phone at 402-553-0800 or online at omahaplayhouse.com.
In addition to this theater production, here are a few other events taking place in the area this weekend:
