They decided to form a new company in Lawton, Oklahoma to offer additional theatre opportunities and genres not currently performed in the area. Thus, Blue MoonProductions, Inc. was born.Named from the phrase “once in a blue moon” the company hoped to embody just what that phrase meant; a rare and special event. Our main objective is to complement the other wonderful arts and entertainment organizations in the local communities, and to enhance the arts in southwest Oklahoma.Blue Moon Productions excels in presenting cutting edge plays and one act programs, the kind of which you might see in larger cities such as Boston, Chicago and Dallas. These productions sometimes contain mature themes and or strong language intended for adult audiences but occasionally we do popular shows that appeal to the whole family.Blue Moon Productions, Inc. is a nonprofit organization and depends entirely on a very small staff of dedicated volunteers to run the entire operation. All income is achieved through ticket sales, sponsors, advertising sales and grants from state or local organizations.
