Pear Tree Performing Arts in Omaha to reopen after renovation
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – The Pear Tree Performing Arts announced Monday that it will reopen in October after the completion of their four-year renovation project.
The announcement comes better late than ever as the historic multi-million dollar renovation is finally completed despite a few setbacks.
The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places for being one of the original Hinky Dinky grocery stores from 1926 to 1963 and the best representation of the chain’s growth in the Midwest. Today, the non-profit organization founded in 2010, offers dance, theater, fitness and wellness classes to the community.
Their post says the space will serve as a full-service arts hub and performing arts facility for the community.
Renovations include a 900 square foot stage, multimedia area, additional classrooms and the Hitchcock Ballet Studio funded by Gilbert M. and Martha H. Hitchcock.
Pear Tree Performing Arts will be hosting a registration event on Saturday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We are delighted to welcome our students, our village of supporters, volunteers and instructors to space in the coming weeks. We see this space as welcoming for all and beneficial for all, ”said Partridge-Butler.
