A State Senator from Omaha wants to be the city’s next Mayor.
Senator Brad Ashford says he’ll make an official announcement after Labor Day. Ashford was first elected to the Nebraska Legislature in 1986 and re-elected in 1990. He ran for Legislature again in 2006 and has represented District 20 since then.
Omaha Performing Arts offers five different series: Broadway, Dance, Family, Jazz and Showcase, formerly the Popular Series.
Executive Director Joan Squires says several of the shows offered during this season’s Broadway series are coming to Omaha for the first time. The season begins with Shrek! The Musical in October. Squires says that’s followed by Billy Elliot in November.
