Since 1993 melodramas have been performed at the Eugene T. Mahoney State
Park located midway between Omaha and Lincoln Nebraska on interstate highway I-80. There are
three plays produced in repertory during the summer months and one play produced in the fall. The melodramas are designed
to provide wholesome family-orientated entertainment and are widely popular in Nebraska and surrounding States.
The park offers visitors a wide variety of entertainment, including a water park complete
with wave pool and water slides, horseback riding, a miniature golf and driving range, fishing,
paddle boating and ice skating.
Deer and other wildlife are in abundance and make appearances throughout the park.
The Denman and Mary Mallory Kountze Memorial
Theatre is located centrally in the park approximately 1/8th of a mile from the
main lodge. The facility is an indoor, climate controlled, state-of-the-art theatre
seating 165 audience members comfortably. There is a fully stocked and staffed concession stand and the
building is handicapped accessible.
Enjoying a fine view of the Platte River,
the Peter Kiewitt Lodge combines comfortable lodging with spacious meeting rooms and an excellent restaurant. Mahoney grille is a
wood-fired grill concept that was developed by Jeff and Emily Parker to compliment the majestic views
seen from the restaurant. The menu features made-from-scratch recipes that includes wood-fired steaks, chops, and seafood, mouth
watering side dishes, and home made soups, salads, and classic sandwiches like Reuben's, French dips,
The 200 seat lodge dining room and wilderness lounge has vaulted
ceilings and is surrounded by windows that overlook the Platte River Valley. There is not a seat in the house where you can't see
for miles and miles!
