  • Bernard – a Paris-based architect and lothario
  • Bertha – Bernard’s Housekeeper
  • Robert – Bernard’s old schoolchum
  • Gabriella – the Italian fiancée

Tulsa youth playwrights and poets have created an amazing performance piece called “PLAYLIST” under the direction of guest artist and award-winning playwright Idris Goodwin.

“PLAYLIST” is a beautifully written collection of poems, scenes and monologues created by our very own Tulsa youth writers. The theme of the performance is music (hence the name) and you will see humor, drama, love stories, poignancy and peotry that will leave you in awe of these young writers.

That’s Your Funeral!

Sheet music to "That's Your Funeral"

Things are movin’ along over here at TT! We have just started week 3 of Oliver! rehearsals and it’s a little hectic as we all settle into the process, learn how everyone works and get comfortable with the material. It is A LOT of material. I didn’t realize how much of this show is music! Dialogue is only about 30% and the rest is this fabulous, inspiring score by Lionel Bart.

My favorite song changes from day to day. The other night in rehearsal, we were working the harmonies on “Who Will Buy” and I had chills. The actors sound so beautiful together! So, I quickly announced THAT was my new favorite song. But, today, I’m thinking it’s a “That’s Your Funeral” kind of day. It’s my new saying, as if to say “That’s Your Problem.” You want more money and you don’t have it? “That’s Your Funeral.” You ran out of gas because you forgot to refuel? “That’s Your Funeral.” You want fried chicken and you don’t have any? “That’s Your Funeral.”

So, I will continue to enjoy being swept away by different songs that speak to me on any particular day. This amazing cast makes it easy. They are all SO phenomenal! It’s going to be a great show, just by the pure talent on the stage. I surely expect that they will light up the Doenges Theatre in March! Don’t miss it! And if you do? Well, you know what they say…
