Kelli O'Hara came home and had them cheering
Kelli O'Hara is no stranger to stages. The Tony Award-winning actress began her collegiate stage career at Oklahoma City University and graduated in 1998. Somewhere between then and now she graduated into a role model for aspiring performers worldwide. On Monday, OCU honored the Elk City native with its highest honor, an honorary doctorate.
OCU produced a thoughtful ceremony, with video that included comments from her cast of "The King and I" and letters written by the likes of Julie Andrews and Harry Connick Jr.
Below is a mix of the ceremony and the backstage interview with O'Hara by The Oklahoman's Brandy McDonnell.
