Jesus Christ Superstar
(get tickets)

OKC Civic Center Music Hall
Freede Little Theatre
Presented by OKC Theatre Company
April 3-20, 2014

 OKC Theatre Company invites you to experience Easter in a completely different way. Their post-apocalyptic war wasteland setting and casting of local stars Renee Anderson (in the role of Judas) and Matthew Alvin Brown (in the role of Jesus), will give the audience cause to stand and cheer. Under the direction of Managing Director Deborah Draheim, the loosely-based Biblical account of Jesus' life follows the traditional Easter story, but the work's depiction offers a free interpretation of the psychology of Jesus and other characters. Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities pervade the lyrics and ironic allusions to modern life are scattered throughout with depictions of political events. Maybe you've seen Superstar before, but never quite like this!

Jesus Christ Superstar is recommended for adults and children 7+.

OKC Civic Center Music Hall
City Space Theatre
Presented by OKC Theatre Company
May 8th-18th, 2014 


A one-of-a-kind cultural event in the region, the ever-evolving Native American Play Festival will be produced for a fifth time by OKC Theatre Company. Each year the Festival reflects our Oklahoma pride and desire to highlight the rich tradition of storytelling in the Native American culture by celebrating it through the art of theatre. The Festival will feature Manahatta by Kathryn Nagle, staged readings of 2014 finalists, cultural events, food, Native singers, and panel discussions with playwrights. In previous years, OKC Theatre Company has proudly welcomed Festival participants from over 25 various tribal nations.

Manahatta follows the story of a modern day Lenape woman who returns to her ancestral land to work on Wall Street. Once there, she must reconcile all that her people have lost with what she now attempts to gain. Manahatta simultaneously tells the story of the Lenape Indians who lived on the island on Manahatta in the 1600's, when Peter Minuit and the Dutch claim to have purchased the island for $24, and explores how the concepts of indigenous identity, ownership, and the entire system of American capitalism have made us who we are today.

Manahatta is recommended for adults and children 14+ due to adult language.

The extremely talented Canadian actor Charles Ross will stun you with this one man show, One-Man Star Wars Trilogy. Much of Ross' childhood was spent in a galaxy far, far away, watching Star Wars videos over - and over - and over again. The result of this misspent youth is his hilarious One-Man Star Wars Trilogy, where he single-handedly plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into just sixty minutes!

"Sheer Comic Genius... He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generation." - The New York Times

"Hilarious! He has the acid snap of a white Richard Pryor, merged with all the Monty Pythons at once." - Toronto Star

"He walks onstage to the roaring tumult usually reserved for rock stars and soon has the audience busting a gut about the Spanish Inquisition and chaos theory. Such is the phenomenon of Eddie Izzard, funniest man, in, well, pretty much all of the known universe." - The LA Times
