An Omaha-based nonprofit is looking to reinvigorate the city's post-pandemic local performance scene with a state-of-the-art mobile stage.

Jessica Scheuerman is the executive director of Partners for Livable Omaha.

She said the Omaha Mobile Stage will give neighborhoods around the city a chance to see, hear and elevate local artists.

“We hope it's a place that communities feel they can gather around and that they feel like it will reflect their community and that they can activate it just like they would that park pavilion,” said Scheurman.

She said the stage is being constructed by architecture students at the University of Nebraska’s Innovation Campus in Lincoln and is expected to be complete by December.
