Omaha Mobile Stage (OMS) has leveraged the expertise of countless individuals in the fields of education, performing arts, design, architecture, fabrication, mechanics, and public space management. 

Over this past year, we have been beyond grateful for the support and leadership of Jeffrey Day, Jerry Reif, Toba Cohen-Dunning, Staci Gowan, Robert Webber, Andrew Johnson, John Bartle, Bob McNulty, Penny Cuff, Jerry Bulanda, and Chris Foster. These individuals have donated their most precious resources—their time and professional expertise—to mentor our staff and students. 

Thank you to the many creatives who helped us keep our hands on the wheel. Special thanks to Brendan Greene-Walsh, Jason Griffiths, T.J. Roe, Dan Brennan, Celeste Butler, Marcey Yates, Manne Cook, and James Schroeder. 

OMS was designed and built by a collaboration between FACT, Actual Architecture Company, University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Architecture, Nebraska Innovation Studio, and Partners for Livable Omaha.

Thank you to the Architecture and Interior Design students of FACT who contributed to the design and construction of the OMS, and a special thanks to Ethan Boerner, Xander Parker, Jarod Bengston, Mason Burress, and Tom Gerdes who continued with the project in the spring of 2022 and into the summer.

Lastly, this project would not be possible without the generous support of our financial supporters. Thank you for dreaming big with us!
