The Poncan Theatre....We Make Memories.
The Poncan Theatre has entertained and enthralled audiences for over eighty years. She was designed by the preeminent theatre designers, the Boller Brothers and is an excellent example of their Spanish Colonial Revival style. The Poncan Theatre has been restored to represent her original 1927 look, but modernized for today’s use. She has played host to sellout musical reviews, standing room only shows as well as events sponsored by the Ponca City Arts and Humanities Council and the Ponca City Concert Series. The Poncan Theatre is the proud host to her signature events, the Evans Children’s Performing Arts Academy, and the Poncan Theatrical Season.
Evans Children’s Academy Dr. Dolittle, Jr.
Directed by Nick Sweet.
The classic tale of kindness to animals and animal kindnesses trots, crawls and flies onto the stage in DOCTOR DOLITTLE JR. All of the characters we've come to love through the stories of Hugh Lofting and the magical movie musical are given new life in the stage version. The musical tells the classic tale of a wacky but kind Doctor who can talk to animals. The show takes the audience on a journey from the small English village of Puddleby-in-the-Marsh to the far corners of the world. Doctor Dolittle is wrongly accused of murder and, once pronounced innocent, continues with his search for the Great Pink Sea Snail--the oldest and wisest of the creatures on earth. DOCTOR DOLITTLE JR. provides directors the wonderful flexibility of casting performers of all ages and types, including a large ensemble that calls for actors to portray talking animals.
