Lyric Theatre’s Kids’ Clubhouse Interactive is ready to travel to schools around the state of Oklahoma! Professor Matt and Gertie, along with special guest artists from Oklahoma’s Theatre Community, teach your students how to create a show. A traveling troupe of actors entertain as they educate groups of students. Participation by the students is what makes Lyric Theatre’s Musical Interactive program distinctive. Instead of presenting a show where the actors are the entertainers and the students are the audience, Musical Interactive succeeds in creating a program of which the children feel they are a part. They interact with the students by teaching them dance steps, involving them in part of the storyline, conducting a sing-along and much more.
The Interactive troupe will be traveling from September 27, 2021 through May 2022. We offer performances during school hours, but no later than 2:00 p.m. The show runs approximately 45 minutes and includes a “Q & A” session with the students at the end. In addition to the performance, students will receive a colorful study guide filled with fun facts, puzzles and information. The program is free of charge to interested Oklahoma schools and is geared towards all grades.
Musical Interactive began traveling to Oklahoma schools in 2007 as part of Oklahoma’s Centennial celebration. Lyric obtained special grants and in-kind support to tour a modified version of the musical Oklahoma! to schools across the state. The reaction to Oklahoma! Interactive was astounding. By the end of 2007, Lyric had traveled to over 130 different schools across 45 counties in Oklahoma and presented the program to more than 60,000 students.
Intended to be a one-semester program, Lyric quickly realized there was a need in the community for such a program to be permanent after receiving an overwhelming response from teachers and students, as well as compiling a wait list of over 50 schools that could not be served within that year. In seeking long-term funding for the program, Lyric is excited to have forged a partnership with Devon Energy. Having generously supported Musical Interactive since its inception, Devon has continued to provide annual funding for the program.
- Please view this as an “entire school” event. The more students we serve, the more funding we receive to continue this free program across the state.
- Lyric’s Kids’ Clubhouse Interactive is available to perform Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
- For schools requesting two shows, please request both time slots before lunch or after lunch. Split days may delay the scheduling process.
- No distance is too great for Kids’ Clubhouse Interactive to travel thanks to the generous support of our sponsors!
