Broadway Day - Kristin Chenoweth

Today we’re attending the theater! Who doesn’t love singing and acting? We have so many wonderful musicals to explore and today we’re going to look at all things Broadway. We hope you have your tickets ready because the show is about to begin!

Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Kristin Chenoweth. Her hometown is Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Chenoweth first started acting when she was in Kindergarten. She has been acting and singing ever since! Now, Chenoweth crosses between stage, television, and film. In 2009, she won an Emmy Award for her performance! You can learn more by reading Kristin Chenoweth’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.

There are other Oklahomans that graced Broadway and love theater as well! Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member Kelli O’Hara was on Broadway too. Mike Turpen has always been a supporter of theater!
