UNO Theatre, Artists Nominated for OEA Awards

Omaha - A number of University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) theatre productions, students, graduates and faculty members have been nominated for the 2010 Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards.

The OEA Awards is an annual contest that celebrates the creativity and performances of local musicians, artists, directors, actors and other metro-area performers.

About 4,000 individual nominations were received earlier this year for the 2010 OEA Awards. The top online vote-getter in each of the 40-plus subcategories received an automatic nomination. The other nominees were determined by a juried panel in each of the areas.

All winners will be announced at the 2010 Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards in January.
