Tickets for “Kristin Chenoweth: My Love Letter to Oklahoma,” presented by ARTSOK, INC. and the Kristin Chenoweth Arts & Education Fund, are on sale now. This concert, headlined by Oklahoma Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth and accompanied by the OKC Philharmonic, will take place at the Civic Center Music Hall on May 14, 2019 at 7:30 P.M., and the proceeds of the event will benefit Allied Arts.
Chenoweth is a TONY® and EMMY® award-winning singer and actress. She is a graduate of Oklahoma City University with a Master’s degree in Opera Performance. She is known for her roles in Broadway musicals like “Wicked” and “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” while also playing roles in television series like “Glee” and “Pushing Daisies,” and most recently NBC’s “Trial & Error” receiving critical acclaim for her performance as Heiress Lavinia Peck-Foster. She is also an inductee into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, as well as the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
Chenoweth joined forces with the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center (BAPAC) Foundation and ARTSOK, Inc. in 2012 to form the Kristin Chenoweth Arts & Education Fund, with the goal of furthering artistic and educational development by serving as a cultural and economic regional partner. Chenoweth's accomplishments were honored by her hometown with BAPAC naming "The Kristin Chenoweth Theatre" in 2012. Partnering with the BAPAC in a labor of love, Kristin launched an annual Broadway Bootcamp in 2015, providing young Broadway hopefuls with the opportunity to take classes, hold performances and learn from top mentors in the entertainment industry including Kristin herself.
“We are so fortunate to host Kristin Chenoweth – she is a phenomenal performer with a genuine love of her home state,” said Deborah McAuliffe Senner, President/CEO of Allied Arts. “Her goals to grow the arts in Oklahoma align perfectly with the Allied Arts mission, which made our collaboration a perfect match.”
Chenoweth is currently working on her next album, set for release in 2019. Tickets for “My Love Letter to Oklahoma” are on sale now and may be purchased online at www.okcciviccenter.com, or by calling (405) 594-8300.
