For many who tread the Broadway boards, their first taste of the limelight began on the stages of community theatre. While this testing ground for talent has been a stepping stone for aspiring performers, it is also a way of life for those theatre lovers who devote their spare time to performing simply for the joy if it.

The Omaha Community Playhouse, now celebrating its 85th season, is one of such places. With ties to theatre luminaries including the Fonda family (Henry and Jane) and the Brando family (Dodie Brando, mother of Marlon) , OCP has been offering experimental and classic family fare since before the Great Depression.

To celebrate the legacy and local commitment of the time-honored playhouse, OCP music director Jim Boggess (music) and associate artistic director Susan Baer Collins (lyrics) penned a "Playhouse Anthem," which captures the true essence of why we call it "community theatre."

Here's a look at the Omaha Community Playhouse Performers and the "Playhouse Anthem."
