2012 Season

XANADU

Plaza Theatre // Jan 25 - Feb 11

This over-the-top, hysterical roller-skating musical spoofs the outrageously bad 1980s film about a beautiful muse who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach and inspires a struggling artist to pursue his dreams. It's hilarity on wheels for anyone who has ever wanted to feel inspired.

 

SPRING AWAKENING

Plaza Theatre // March 28 - April 14

Rated R for strong language and sexually explicit scenes.
This coming-of-age indie rock musical, adapted from the controversial 1891 German play by Frank Wedekind, explores the intimate journey from adolescence to adulthood with unforgettable poignancy and passion.

 

BYE BYE BIRDIE

Civic Center // June 26 - June 30

Conrad Birdie has "One Last Kiss" for his number one teen fan in Sweet Apple, Ohio, before he is drafted into the Army. Get swept up in the excitement of the Ed Sullivan Show and the hip-thrusting rock and roll star visiting this small town in BYE BYE BIRDIE.

 

SWEET CHARITY

Civic Center // July 10 - July 14

Before Sex and the City there was SWEET CHARITY. Charity works at a dance club where the motto is "Hey Big Spender." She has only seen the dark side of life through her bad relationships, but through it all she stays sweet and is hopeful that someday she will find happiness.

 

IRVING BERLIN'S CALL ME MADAM

Civic Center // July 24 - July 28

Inspired by Oklahoma City's own international socialite and Ambassador, Perle Mesta, this musical comedy is full of Irving Berlin tunes you love, like "Hostess with the Mostes" and "You're Just in Love."

 

CHITA RIVERA MY BROADWAY

Civic Center // Aug 7 - Aug 11

The legend herself in concert- LIVE AT THE CIVIC CENTER!
An intimate evening of music with two-time Tony Award winner CHITA RIVERA performing songs from her legendary Broadway career.

"You leave this show walking on air!" -The New York Times.

 

A YEAR WITH FROG & TOAD

Plaza Theatre // July 13 - July 28

Arnold Lobel's well-loved characters hop from the page to the stage in this delightful hour-long version of Robert and Willie Reale's musical. The story follows two great friends, the cheerful Frog and the rather grumpy Toad, through four funfilled seasons. Ages 4+

 

THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP

Plaza Theatre // Oct 10 - Oct 27

Two actors take on all the roles with dozens of lightening quick costume changes in Charles Ludlum's high-camp comedy. This sidesplitting spoof pokes fun at all that is ridiculous in Gothic horror, Victorian melodrama, and classic movies, plus it's a contender for the funniest American play of the last quarter-century.

 

A CHRISTMAS CAROL presented by Devon Energy

Plaza Theatre // Nov 30 - Dec 29

A spectacular new Oklahoma holiday tradition returns with Lyric's production of Charles Dickens' classic, A CHRISTMAS CAROL presented by Devon Energy. Capture the magic and joy of Christmas as the ghosts of Past, Present and Future lead the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.
