Meet the Broadway cast of Omaha's favorite tradition!

The 2021 Physicians Mutual Christmas Celebration with the Omaha Symphony returns to the Holland Center, and we can't wait to welcome you back to Omaha's favorite reason to gather! Each year for this one-of-a-kind show, Maestro Ernest Richardson and director and choreographer Parker Esse draw upon an incredible pool of talent to build the show's cast, many of whom are Omaha natives—but we'll also welcome several Broadway singers, dancers, and actors from New York to join us here at the Holland. We want to introduce them to you!

Meet the cast of Broadway talent you'll see on stage, and be sure to grab your tickets to the Physicians Mutual Omaha Symphony Christmas Celebration December 16-19 while they're still available!
