Encore! Theatre Arts sends soaring show tunes and emotive monologues resounding through the Tulsa community with high-energy productions of time-tested family theater favorites. Based on the 1980 film, Fame follows a group of young performers at the School of Performing Arts in New York City as they confront overbearing stage mothers, anger issues, and the challenges of completing a history exam in Morse code using only tap shoes. A cast of 20 thespians sings and dances as the talented but troubled youngsters and their stubborn parents express their dreams and hopes via soaring choruses and athletic choreography. Experience the musical as notes bounce off the newly restored walls of the Tulsa Little Theatre, a 1930s playhouse that was remodeled to look exactly as it did in its original state, from the color of the lobby to the speakeasy hidden in one of the bathroom stalls.
The sun glints off a jet, the vehicle rolling slowly forward across the tarmac. Its engines aren't propelling it; rather, the pure power of 20 humans drags it along, inch by inch. This epic match of tug of war serves as the main attraction at Camp Fire Presents Just Plane Fun 2013, a yearly fundraiser for the youth-development organization.
In addition to its central man-versus-machine throw-down, the event also includes a family-fun festival complete with inflatable bounce houses, a silent auction with more than 100 items, and food vendors. Entertainers paint designs on kids' faces or twist and tie balloons into the shapes of kids' favorite animals or 1860s oil tycoons. All the event's proceeds benefit Camp Fire, helping them continue their mission to educate and entertain youths while helping them to tap into their leadership abilities and to appreciate their differences.
