You don't need to travel to NYC. We've got theatre, music and dance here in OKC!
Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma was founded in 1963 and is the state's leading professional theatre company. In a typical season, they perform eight shows, ranging from kid-friendly musicals to thought-provoking plays. Their upcoming musical, which will be staged outdoors at the brand-new First Americans Museum, runs for one week only (March 23-27)! Distant Thunder was originally slated for Lyric's 2020 season, and after two years of waiting, Oklahoma audiences will finally get to experience this world premiere Native American musical.
