Audition Selections the Director would like to hear at auditions:
It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.
Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams… and a soulless marriage.

Performances: May 14-16, 2021

Rebellion is nigh in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination! This story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the “revolting children” who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson.
Matilda has astonishing wit, intelligence… and special powers! She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
Packed with high-energy dance numbers and catchy songs, Matilda JR.is a joyous girl power romp. Children and adults alike will be thrilled and delighted by the story of the special little girl with an extraordinary imagination.
Register for Summer Camp – Shrek Jr.
Poteet Theatre History
The idea for this performance space came back in 1995 when our first theatre director, Jason Johnston, descended the narthex steps toward Robert Fasol’s choir room for maybe his thousandth time. He looked at what was then the Youth Lounge, but he saw something different. He saw the elements necessary to design a theatre: a lobby, a stage, a tech booth, rehearsal spaces, and of course a concession stand!
In March of 1999, while the theatre was still being finished, the young theatre troupe began rehearsals for Barefoot in the Park, directed by David Palmer. In September of 1999, Cindy Poteet directed Forever Plaid. Unfortunately, after a long battle with cancer, Cindy passed away. A fundraising effort enabled the completion of the theatre, and a dedication performance titled Tribute was held on March 3, 2001 in honor of our theatre’s namesake. Selections from shows involving Cindy were performed that night; Charlie Brown, Godspell, Forever Plaid, and Nunsense. That night they especially enjoyed video footage of Cindy as Mother Superior in Nunsense. She was known for her humor, wit, and loving nature.
Over the past 20+ years the Poteet Theatre has produced numerous critically acclaimed shows providing quality, family entertainment to the St. Luke’s congregation and the surrounding Oklahoma City community.
