Lucas Ross and the Sugar Free Allstars
Part of The McKnight Center Family SeriesOur new Family Series invites our youngest patrons to join us in the theater for a fun time filled with music and laughter. All ages are welcome to wiggle, dance, and sing along in the audience!

Larger seating pods are available upon request and are only for families and groups who have been sheltering together. Please contact the Box Office to request a larger pod. Requests must be made at least 72 hours prior to showtime.
Lucas Ross is an actor/comedian from Minco, Oklahoma, who uses his trusty banjo to tell silly stories. He has opened for “Weird Al” Yankovic, Béla Fleck, and others, and appeared alongside Kermit the Frog at the American Banjo Museum.
The Sugar Free Allstars are a family funk super duo from Oklahoma City and they have been listed as one of Time Magazine’s top 12 family music acts in America. They bring a high energy, rock show-dance party experience to the stage that will have the entire family movin’ and groovin’! Their original songs like “Monster Truck” and “Grumpopotamus” blend soul, rhythm and blues, and disco to create fun lyrics and sounds that kids (and adults!) will love.
See both of these great performers in one silly, singing, afternoon concert!
TicketsAll tickets to this event are $7.50.
