Your Oklahoma Community Theatre Association wants to work for you by offering a 'Roster of Relief' in areas where you might need guidance or assistance. OCTA board members are ready to connect with you via phone, email, or even a personal visit to your theatre as part of your membership in our organization.

 Through a regional theatre forum, we found some common areas of concern:



Box Office,

Licensing /Copyright - Dealing with publishing houses,

Planning a season,

Stage Managing,


Youth Theatre,

and Fundraising, to name a few.

Let your OCTA board work for you and help with these, or any area(s) you might like to discuss. Contact Roster Chairperson, Chuck Tweed,at 405/840-0788, or via email at [email protected]



We are currently members of the following organizations:

  • Oklahomans for the Arts
  • American Association of Community Theatres
  • Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits   (Two of our Board members have completed the prestigious Standards of Excellence training - Recognized nationally as the gold standard for Board development.)

Each year on behalf of our membership we attend the following events, with a vendor table to represent our membership:

  • Oklahoma Arts Conference
  • Arts Day at the Capitol

Biannually at least one of our Board members attends The Southwest Leadership Conference which is sponsored by Sarkeys Foundation to be recognized as a voice for our nonprofit theatres as the majority of attendees are services and agency nonprofits.

Our Board members go as a representative of all our membership, to be a voice for YOU. We hope to let Oklahoma know they have this rich arts resource in cities and towns large and small.
