Built as a Vaudeville theatre in 1927, the Omaha Orpheum Theater is an elegant and ornate building used primarily for performing arts. HDR has completed upgrades and renovations to the theater throughout the years, including a stage addition, mechanical system upgrades, lobby renovations, main theater renovations, and the design of a new donor lounge.

The design team approached the lobby and main theater renovations from a restoration perspective, but took a contemporary approach when creating the back stage addition and donor lounge area. Together, the updated facility intertwines the historic and the new, rejuvenating the extraordinary building in a contemporary and timeless way.
