Key Points

  • Project Veritas Founder and CEO James O’Keefe has been cast in the lead role as “Curly,” in Director Brian Clowdus’ interpretation of the Rodgers and Hammerstein American classic, “Oklahoma!”

  • The outdoor performance will take place in Virginia during the late summer between August and September of this year.

  • O’Keefe said he is pleased to be working with such a talented cast – specifically those who have been blacklisted through cancel culture, for simply standing up for their personal beliefs.

  • He also hopes that by bringing his voice to the cultural arts, he can inspire others to break through the wall of bias and censorship currently dominating the entertainment industry.

  • This isn’t O’Keefe’s first rodeo when it comes to stage acting – He was the lead in George Gershwin’s “Crazy for You” in 2002 and starred in, wrote, and produced Project Veritas’ version of the music video, “Oligarchy” earlier this year. He also starred in another music video in 2011 titled, “Landrieu Dance.”

O’Keefe, who is no stranger to the stage or to cancel culture, described the opportunity as a “dream role” and said he is looking forward to working with cast members who have been pushed out of the industry because of their personal beliefs. 

“I am honored to work with Director, Brian Clowdus, and a cast of free-thinking artists,” he said in a statement. “I look at this collaboration as a vehicle for personal growth, as a human and a performer, to help trailblaze and broaden artistic opportunities for all. Art has the ability to bring us all together, focusing on what makes us similar instead of what makes us different.”

Performances will run from August 19 – September 5 on Thursdays at 7pm; Fridays at 7pm; Saturdays at 7pm and 2pm; and Sundays at 2pm. 

The show will also include a 200-year-old barn and animals for a lively cinematic experience.


General seating will start at $44 and VIP Tickets are being sold for $99. The VIP ticket option includes front row picnic table seating and table service.
