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.
Tickets are for reserved seating, which can be reserved at the box office an hour before show time, or by calling ahead. Visions of celebrity awakened by the production can spring to life in the acting studio of Encore! Theatre Arts, which offers acting classes for dramatizers and open auditions to aspiring artistes and Calvin Coolidge impersonators of all ages.
Encore! Theatre Arts offers its own specials for certain performances; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
