Max Weitzenhoffer


A. Max Weitzenhoffer is a highly acclaimed independent producer of New York and London theatre productions. As Chairman of Nimax Theatres, he owns six theaters in the teeming arts district of London’s West End. He won Tony Awards for the revival of Dracula and best musical for The Will Roger Follies, and in 1994, was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. His extensive career includes roles as Chairman of the OU Regents, President and CEO of Seminole Manufacturing Company, and Visiting Professor of Musical Theater at OU.

A graduate of the OU School of Drama, Mr. Weitzenhoffer is the largest sole contributor to the Fine Arts at OU. In 1998, Mr. Weitzenhoffer provided the funding to begin the Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre, a program that has quickly risen to become one of the most prestigious training grounds for musical theatre artists in the country. Then in 2000, Mr. Weitzenhoffer bestowed the University with his late mother, Clara’s collection of twenty-two Impressionist paintings containing the work of Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, and Vincent Van Gogh among many others.

In 2004, the Board of Regents unanimously chose to rename our college to the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts in honor of Mr. Weitzenhoffer’s unequalled contributions. We look forward to celebrating his storied career and the 25th anniversary of his transformational gift to the College.
