Native American Play Festival featuring "Manahatta"
(get tickets)

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.

 Sister Act is Broadway's feel-amazing musical comedy smash! The New York Post calls it "RIDICULOUSLY FUN," and audiences are jumping to their feet in total agreement! Featuring original music by 8-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors), Sister Act tells the story of Deloris Van Cartier, a wannabe diva whose life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look, a convent! Under the suspicious watch of Mother Superior, Deloris helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she unexpectedly rediscovers her own. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, Sister Act is reason to REJOICE!

Celebrity Attractions recommends Sister Act for audiences ages 9 and over. This is only to be used as a suggestion for you and your child. Each child is different and the decision to attend this show should be made by the parent or guardian. Everyone must have a ticket regardless of age.

"60 Minutes + 3 "Star Wars" Flicks + One Guy = Nerd Heaven... One Man Show is Off-The-Wall Fun!"

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!
