You know “Where’s Waldo?” right? That’s about dozens or more people doing lots of different things. Now you might ask “Where’s Noah Diaz?”  He’s been all over Omaha’s theatre map these past few years, acting in so many plays that you could’ve hardly missed him. Portraying many people engaged in all kinds of activities. Speaking words written by other people. Now his own words take the stage. World premiering: The Motherhood Almanac. He says the six-woman piece is about mothers and daughters, birth and death, adoption, weddings, divorce, learning how to adapt to changing lives and much more, spelled out at Shelterbelt’s website. Diaz, in his early twenties, graduates from UNO this year, aiming for a degree in special education and communication disorders. You might wonder how could someone so young know so much, given that he’s neither a mother or a daughter. Time will tell.
