Pioneer Women Musical Production
April 23, 7 p.m.
An event every day that begins at 7 p.m., repeating until April 25, 2021
Unveiling ceremonies for the Pioneer Woman Statue were originally held on April 22, 1930, the anniversary of the first land run in Oklahoma. This year, to mark that anniversary, a multimedia musical production Pioneer Women written by Debra Harden Rue will be shown at the Poncan Theatre April 23–25. The production has been endorsed by the Pioneer Woman Museum and Statue. The music and script are a historical tribute to the 12 statues that E.W. Marland commissioned in the 1920s to honor the pioneer women who shaped America.
This project has been endorsed by the Ponca City Federated Music Club’s 100th anniversary.
The club has been endorsed by the Pioneer Woman Museum, the City of Ponca City, the National Parks Department/Department of the Interior, the Ponca Playhouse, the Ponca City Theatre Troupe, the 101 Ranch Old Timers, and other Ponca City Marland entities.
Special orchestra seat tickets are available and include a post-party after the April 24th performance. The musical will include music by Prairie Fire, Native American dancers, the Oklahoma Kid Trick Roper, and professional choreography by Kara Kem. The musical includes over 30 performers. Tickets are available online now.
