What People Have Said About Encore!

     "If you want to be on stage, or just take in an entertaining performance, Encore! is the best!
     For actors, Josh creates a real sense of family among the cast. Whether a child (or adult) has been in one, or twenty productions, everyone is made to feel important and part of the team, because they are. There are no "cliques". It's one big family.
     And the kids learn valuable lessons while having fun. Responsibility. Teamwork. Building confidence. Having each other's back. And of course, acting technique!
     The productions are a blast, the sets are incredible, and Josh discovers what each actor's strengths are, and incorporates those into their roles to get the best out of each performer.
     And they offer acting classes for beginners and experienced actors alike. Whether you have a child who has never been on stage before, or one who's been on stage dozens of times, I highly recommend Encore!
     And if acting isn't your thing, check out a show! You will be entertained!"

"Without the film classes and acting experience I've had with Encore!, I wouldn't have been able to sign with the talent agent I have now."
-Axyl Langford, Actress, Student

"I just want to say that It's a Wonderful Life was amazing! Joshua Branson Barker did a phenomenal job as George Bailey. I was completely immersed into the life of George and the emotion he felt as he wrestled with the dreams and desires in his heart, yet his strong sense of responsibility in caring for his family and the townspeople. I loved Clarence and Harry portrayed by Blake Lewis. This is a must see. Thank you for sharing It's a Wonderful Life this Christmas season!"

  1. I took my Granddaughter to see "It's A Wonderful Life". She was captivated through every scene. The performance of the cast and crew were totally awesome. Joshua, did a phenomenal job filling the shoes of none other than "Jimmy Stewart"! I was mesmerized by his star-quality awesome performance. Mindy did a wonderful job as Mary. The whole cast and crew were terrific! It was amazing to watch these talented actors which I proudly claim are from our local Tulsa area. My Granddaughter is seriously interested in the art of acting and I'm sure I'll probably owe a lot of her passionate enthusiasm towards the theatre to you...ENCORE!" Thank you Encore. A loyal fan and Grandmother.
