OKC Broadway

​OKC Broadway is a partnership between the Civic Center Foundation and The Nederlander Organization. 

The Civic Center Foundation, created in 2001, has served as a partner with the City of Oklahoma City to assist in the funding for capital improvements and maintenance of the Civic Center Music Hall and to ensure it remains a premier performing arts center in the country. The name “Nederlander” has been synonymous with great entertainment since 1912. A show business dynasty began when David T. Nederlander, a smart young businessman living in Detroit Michigan, purchased a 99-year lease on the Detroit Opera House. In 1964, his son James M. Nederlander came to New York City and purchased the Palace Theatre on Broadway. His hard work, pioneering spirit and vision enabled him to build one of the largest privately held live entertainment companies in the world. Now under the leadership of James L. Nederlander, The Nederlander Organization continues the tradition of operating historic theatres, producing and presenting the best in theatrical and concert events, and innovating new ways to engage future generations of theatergoers.

OKC Broadway is proud to host a regional awards program for “The Jimmy Award,” a national program that celebrates outstanding student performances in high school musical productions across the United States. OKC Broadway’s Kelli O’Hara Awards will debut in 2019. For more information:
