“I couldn’t be more proud – of all of us” – Artistic Director Sara Phoenix

Our 92nd Season opened with the blockbuster "Les Miserables", starring 70 of Tulsa's finest!

Our 92nd Season opened with the blockbuster “Les Miserables”, starring 70 of Tulsa’s finest!

It was August 31, 2014, the 15th, sold-out performance of Les Misérables. The final show of what turned out to be an amazing run. Some friends and colleagues suggested that I, for once, sit IN the audience to watch. As the director, I had been sitting in the booth for weeks. Nitpicking minute details. Biting my fingernails. Basically avoiding audiences in the typical neurotic-director manner. After 15 sellouts, I felt like I was the only person in Tulsa who hadn’t enjoyed the show yet.

Sitting among the crowd for the first time, in that final performance, I was flooded with emotion (and tears). I was reminded why I believed 3 years ago that Theatre Tulsa could and should become the strong theatre company that our community deserved. A patron approached me at intermission and said “Nobody told you that you couldn’t do it! So I’m so glad you did!” I will always remember that statement. It encompasses the hopeful, ambitious spirit we’ve embraced at TT – and how the community has supported us for it.

Miss Saigon Choral Auditions – This Saturday!!!

Miss SaigonIf you love the music of Miss Saigon, but don’t have time to devote to a full rehearsal schedule, we invite you to join our show’s choral ensemble.

We are assembling a 40-50 member featured onstage choir to deliver a powerhouse vocal performance of Miss Saigon.

Rehearsals for the choral group will be weekly, with no more than 10 rehearsals before production week begins.

This is a fun and easy way to perform Miss Saigon with a low time commitment.

We also offer two ways to auditions! We’re having an open call on Saturday, May 16 at 10:00 a.m. at 308 S. Kenosha Ave. Or you can submit a video audition.
