Omaha Performing Arts is proud to announce that the Orpheum Theater and the Holland Performing Arts Center, which are both managed by Omaha Performing Arts, have been internationally and nationally recognized by two top venue publications: Pollstar and Venues Today.
Both the Orpheum Theater and the Holland Performing Arts Center were listed among the top 100 theatre venues of all sizes for worldwide ticket sales in Pollstar’s mid-year report out July 18, 2011.
Pollstar, the only trade publication covering the worldwide concert industry, listed Omaha’s Orpheum Theater as 13th out of 100 theatre venues for worldwide ticket sales with 148,099 tickets reported for the period of Jan. 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011 and the Holland Performing Arts Center as 89th out of 100 theatre venues for worldwide ticket sales with 28,796 tickets reported for the same period.
