For the 2022-2023 school year…

LYRIC THEATRE OF OKLAHOMA PROUDLY PRESENTS

OKLAHOMA! Interactive

Lyric Theatre’s OKLAHOMA! Interactive is ready to travel to schools around the state of Oklahoma! A traveling troupe of actors entertain as they educate groups of students. Also, during these times, we understand that some schools are still not gathering in groups. With that said, we would like to extend the opportunity to perform our show for your school IN PERSON or…VIRTUALLY!

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 7, 2022 through May 2023. We offer performances during school hours, between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 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 guide filled with fun facts, puzzles, information and MUS. The program is FREE OF CHARGE to interested Oklahoma schools and is geared towards MOST school ages.

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.

This special touring program is offered FREE OF CHARGE to interested schools and is underwritten by Devon Energy Corporation. Additional funding is provided by: Caroline Watson Rural Oklahoma Community Foundation, Dr. Elliott Schwartz and Ms. Pam Shanklin, The McGee Foundation, Allied Arts, Kirkpatrick Foundation, Oklahoma Arts Council, Shubert Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Inasmuch Foundation, Wilshire Charitable Foundation, Globe Life and Sonic, America’s Drive-In.

Scheduling Tips:

  •  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 OKLAHOMA! Interactive is now available to perform Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays!
  •  We can now come to your school OR perform for you virtually as well!
  •  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 OKLAHOMA! Interactive to travel thanks to the generous support of our sponsors!
