The Poncan Theatre Capital Campaign 

Greetings from the Poncan Theatre,
The Historical Poncan Theatre, 501(c)3, was built in 1927 and added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1985. Next year, 2017, the Poncan will be celebrating its 90th birthday and is very much alive and serving the community. This beautiful venue is a large asset to the community and hosts a variety of shows such as live theatre, movies, concerts, wedding, conferences, Bison / Bison Film Festival, Ponca City Concert Series, Ponca City Arts & Humanities and Evan's 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 citizens, who had a love and passion to see the Poncan remain a part of the community, united together and with their gifts of goods and money and also many gave 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.

It has been approximately 22 years since the last renovations took place at the theatre. Due to the continued use of a 90 year old building, there have been some repair issues that greatly need some attention for the Poncan to remain such a beautiful part of our community.

As we approach the 90th anniversary of the Poncan Theatre we are making plans for a great year of entertainment and making sure that many generations to come get to enjoy this facility.

We are inviting you to be a donor in making sure that the Historical Poncan Theatre will be a part of the Ponca City Community for 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,
 
The mission of the 1927 Historical Poncan Theatre is to help enrich the entertainment of persons / families and to broaden their appreciation of the arts.

Baby Boomer Comedy Show

 

“Baby Boomers” featuring Kent Rader and Jan McInnis

Saturday, February 17th @ 7:30 PM
Tickets are $20 per person

The Baby Boomer Comedy Show, CLEAN, Stand-Up Comedy for People Born Before Seat Belts.

Fellow baby boomer and veteran comedians, Jan McInnis and Kent Rader, have come together. To develop The Baby Boomer Comedy Show. This 90-minute theater event is filled with clean humor on topics the boomer generation can relate to- family, kids, work, do-it-yourself projects, dieting, aging, grandchildren and is perfect for all boomers wanting a night of entertaining and CLEAN comedy.

 

Jan and Kent have a combined 30 years experience performing for theaters, corporations and associations throughout the country…

Jan was featured in the Wall Street Journal as one of the top convention comedians whose act is clean, and in the Washington Post in a challenge from Gene Weingarten to write clean punch lines to his suggestive set-ups! She has performed everywhere from the Barns @ WolfTrap to the Mayo Clinic and the American Bankers Association, Pep Boys, John Deere, Anthem Blue Cross, and the Federal Reserve in Atlanta.
Kent won the Branson Comedy Festival, and has been performing his clean comedy to packed convention and theater crowds across the country. He’s a former hospital CFO with a sense of humor – imagine that! And in fact he has the title of “cleanest comedian” for a reason – attend this show and you’ll find out why!

“Finding The Funny…“

Jan McInnis

For comedienne and professional speaker Jan McInnis, life is full of “finding the funny.” She – and the audiences who continually rate her programs “hilarious” – wouldn’t have it any other way. Inspired by fifteen years as a marketing director in the 9 to 5 world, Jan has cornered the association and corporate convention market. And over the past 20+ years on the full-time speaking circuit, she has spoken at hundreds of conferences, training sessions, employee retreats and banquets held by such groups as Anthem Blue-Cross, Merrill Lynch, John Deere, the Federal Reserve, Women in Insurance & Financial Services and the Mayo Clinic. Jan was featured in the “Wall Street Journal” and the Washington Post as one of the top convention comedians whose material is CLEAN (as in not offensive).

Born in D.C., Jan was in charge of the “Joke of the Day” for her junior high school lunch table. Not surprisingly, she majored in communications at Virginia Tech, where she was a disk jockey for the local radio station.

Jan’s humor is clean and appropriate for all groups.

Kent Rader

Known as the “World’s Cleanest Comedian and Speaker,” Kent Rader helps people and associations learn and experience how laughter matters in reducing stress and building quality organizations. Kent graduated from William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri with a B.S. in Accounting. He spent five years in public accounting and twelve years as C.F.O. and C.E.O. of hospitals before becoming a professional speaker in 1997. Kent has authored the stress reduction book titled Let It Go, Just Let It Go released in April 2002 and is featured in 450 Country Inn and Suites Hotel’s Read It and Return program. Kent has been heard on NPR’s Talk of the Nation and Sirius Satellite radio. Kent also performs clean stand up comedy in comedy clubs from New York City to Seattle and is the winner of the 2007 Branson Comedy Festival.
