OKC Civic Center Music Hall
Thelma Gaylord Performing Arts Theatre
Presented by OKC Ballet 
April 17th - 19th, 2015

In this exciting and eclectic mixed bill of three different works, we prove the art of ballet is much more than tutus, tiaras, and Tchaikovsky.

Play (Oklahoma Premiere)- The music of techno giant Moby takes center stage with the ingenious choreography of Houston Ballet Artistic Director Stanton Welch in Play. Inspired by the crowded streets of urban life, the dancers in Play march, slide, scoot, and accelerate their motion with Cinematic sweep.

Dear Miss Cline (Oklahoma Premiere)- Amy Seiwert’s was first introduced in 2009 when she created her world premiere ballet Finding/Almost on the Company. Ms. Seiwert’s brilliant work returns in 2015 as the Company premieres Dear Miss Cline, an endearing ballet using the music of country superstar Patsy Cline originally choreographed for Smuin Ballet.

Nine Sinatra Songs (Company Premiere)- The headlining ballet of this memorable triple bill is Twyla Tharp’s Nine Sinatra Songs. The iconic choreographer Twyla Tharp choreographed Nine Sinatra Songs in 1982 to the incredible voice and timeless songs of Frank Sinatra. A mix of ballet, modern dance, and ballroom, Nine Sinatra Songs’ popularity is evidenced by the companies that dance it around the world

Thursday, April 30th, 2015 - 8pm

 When country a cappella band Home Free was crowned Season 4 Champions of NBC's The Sing Off this past December, their victory was by no means the beginnings of a career for the five country stars from Minnesota... rather it was a satisfying culmination of nearly a decade of hard work and commitment to a vocal craft growing in popularity.

Founded by brothers Chris and Adam Rupp during their college years in the early 2000s, Home Free had been perfecting their live show for years prior to The Sing Off- performing together for crowds in countless States and County Fairs, on college campuses, in front of Fortune 500 companies, and in theaters all across the country. It was their experience on the road that carried them to a Sing-Off victory, swelling their fan base and bringing their homegrown style into a national spotlight.

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015 - 8pm

Since being fired from King Burger, Bon Qui Qui has worked many odd jobs and lost them all. In the search for her calling, the employee with no filter made it her life mission to dominate the hip-hop world and recorded her first rap single, “I’m a Cut You”. She’s still her ghetto fabulous self, but with a new career and a new weave.

Bon Qui Qui is the alter ego of Mad TV’s Anjelah Johnson-Reyes. This original character arose from the Mad TV sketch “King Burger” and followed Johnson-Reyes’ stand-up routine, “Nail Salon”, which went viral and made her an internet sensation; the video currently logs 33 million YouTube views. Bon Qui Qui has since been viewed and replicated by over 65 million people worldwide. After recording and releasing three songs and two music videos as Bon Qui Qui, Anjelah signed a record deal with Warner Bros Records and has released her debut album, Gold Plated Dreams. Bon Qui Qui recently teamed up with Benefit Cosmetics for her third music video, “This Is How We Do It (Benefit Remix)”. All songs and videos are currently available on iTunes and YouTube.
