Benson Theatre, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2012 to renovate the historic Benalto Theatre at 6054 Maple Street in Omaha, Neb. Our mission is to engage, enhance and enrich the community through educational and artistic experiences.

Built in 1923 as a vaudeville theater, 6054 Maple Street is currently closed to public assembly. A capital campaign is under way to renovate our facility and build out our programming.

We currently operate The B Side of Benson Theatre at 6058 Maple Street, a 2,910 square foot event venue that can be booked for workshops, seminars, networking events, forums, fundraisers, creative performances, receptions, private events and more. B Side also serves as storage and office space for our staff. Programming is made possible in part by a grant from the Douglas County Visitor Improvement Fund.
