Repairs begin on The Poncan

Team Radio Marketing Group - March 27, 2017 9:47 am

Crews started work Monday morning on repairs to the facade of The Poncan Theatre.

Broken glass panes and termite-eaten wood on the front of the Team Radio studios were removed and the frames were prepared for replacement. Other maintenance work is being done to help preserve the 90-year-old theater.

The Poncan Theatre was built in 1927 and added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1985. The theatre celebrates its 90th birthday this year and is very much alive and serving the community.

This beautiful venue hosts a variety of shows such as live theatre, movies, concerts, weddings, conferences, the BisonBison Film Festival, the Ponca City Concert Series, Ponca City Arts & Humanities and Evans Children’s Academy of Performing Arts.

The theatre was closed from 1985 to 1994 due to financial difficulties. During this time there was consideration of tearing down the theatre and making it a parking lot. A large group of Ponca City citizens, who had a love and passion to see The Poncan remain a part of the community, united and with their gifts of goods, money and endless hours of hands-on labor, The Poncan was re-opened in 1994. Since 1994 it has remained a highly sought after venue for a variety of events.

We invite you to be a donor to assure that The Poncan Theatre will be a part of the Ponca City Community for the next 90 years. The theatre is a 501(c)3 and all donations are tax deductible. A commitment has been made to the Poncan Theatre that all donations will be matched dollar for dollar.
Thank you for your consideration.
