Jay Hanson, left, and Melissa King, right, perform in the Omaha Community Playhouse’s upcoming production of “Once.”

The Omaha Community Playhouse will present “Once” Friday through March 22. Performances will be held Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Winner of eight Tony Awards and based on the Oscar-winning film, “Once” is the tale of unexpected love between Guy, an Irish musician, and Girl, a Czech immigrant. The score — featuring the Academy Award-winning single, “Falling Slowly,” — is performed entirely on stage, with the actors doubling as orchestra musicians.

The Omaha Community Playhouse will host an audio-described performance of “Once” for people who are blind or people with vision impairments at 7:30 p.m. March 21. Patrons who wish to take advantage of the audio description services may check out a headset from the OCP box office.

Tickets are on sale now starting at $24 for adults and $18 for students, with ticket prices varying by performance. Tickets may be purchased at the OCP Box Office, located at 6915 Cass St. in Omaha, by phone at 402-553-0800 or online at omahaplayhouse.com.
