Our 2015-2016 Season is

Celebrating the Magic of the Classics!

Featuring a farce, a surrealist melodrama, a classic comedy, and a romantic musical comedy.  Auditions for our productions are open to everyone, students and the Lawton-Fort Sill community alike.   Our continuing goal is to provide you with quality entertainment as well as being the best educational theatre in the Southwest. 

 


The Breasts of Tiresias

by Guillaume Apollinaire  

October 1-3, 2015 at 7:30pm and October 4, 2015 at 2:00pm.


 

Our entry in this year’s Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival is a surrealistic whirlwind of images and dialogue, a wife refuses to bear children so her husband does it.  Children become commodities as the husband strives for wealth.   In the end, the husband and wife relent their positions on childbearing and are reunited.

*Warning:  This production contains material that certain people may find objectionable. 

 


The Magic of Moliére

November 19-21, 2015 at 7:30pm and November 22, 2015 at 2:00pm.

These are two classic one-act plays from a comedic genius.  Both plays focus on love.  In the first, two young ladies are seeking their future mates. They spurn their father’s selections, so the jilted suitors send their servants to woo them and of course the young ladies fall for these new candidates.  In the second an elderly man has been cultivating his bride only to have her stolen away by a more age appropriate suitor.

 


Fallen Angels

by Noel Coward

February 18-20, 2016 at 7:30pm and February 21, 2016 at 2:00pm.

This 1925 farce about two wealthy British women tempted by the return of a Frenchman who once bedded both of them. The champagne-bubbly, dryly witty romp about the foibles of the British upper class also deals with such universal themes as the lure of lustful sex, marriages gone stale, the nature of commitment, and the sexual double standard, so the story remains relevant.


The Pajama Game

Book by George Abbott & Richard Bissell

Music and Lyrics are by Richard Adler & Jerry Ross

April 21-23, 2016 at 7:30pm and April 24, 2016 at 2:00pm. 

The story deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where workers demands for a seven-and-a-half cent raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent.  It features such songs as “Hey There,” “Steam Heat,” and “Hernado’s Hide-a-way.”

 

This production is sponsored in part by the Richard T. Brittingham Musical Theatre Endowed Lectureship.


All Evenings at 7:30 P.M. and Sunday at 2 P.M. 

We also offer weekday matinees for local schools.
