Each November sees a full-scale production of a staged musical with orchestra, ranging from Broadway's classics to London's hottest modern hits. Recent productions have included "Titanic," "Oklahoma!," "The Mystery of Edwin Drood," "Fiddler on the Roof," "Into the Woods," "Little Shop of Horrors," "West Side Story," "Guys & Dolls," "She Loves Me," "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "Beauty and the Beast," and, for Fall 2012, "Seussical the Musical."
". . . there is only one word to describe the outcome: magnificent. . .To give ample credit to everyone in the splendid cast would take a catalog. The fact that Oklahoma Christian University is the first college in the state to tackle this huge show, to even gain Broadway rights, is an admirable feat. For the university to put all behind a splendid homecoming treat, it deserves special kudos."

Oklahoma Christian's unique version of dinner theater is the annual "Valentine Cabaret" production. With dinner served in the spacious McIntosh Conservatory and the show presented on the nearby stage of the acoustically and visually stunning Adams Recital Hall, the experience is a memorable one. Many OC students have taken their turn in the spotlight in recent productions such as "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown," "Two by Two" and "The Fantasticks." Multiple performances provide students interested in music theater a "starring role" in this popular event.
