After another great season, Theatre Tulsa is starting up the next one with basically no time off in between (we start rehearsals for Les Miserables tonight.) But before we do, I can’t help but settle into a long moment of happiness and satisfaction.
This past weekend, we closed Theatre Tulsa’s 91st season, just as we opened it on September 20th, 2013, with a sold-out house of 420 theatre fans of all ages cheering on one of the longest-lasting civic theatres in the nation. From Legally Blonde to The Sound of Music and every project in between, we made it!
This past weekend we closed out 91st season, and we’re not slowing down (Les Miserables rehearsals begin this week). We built a big, ambitious season and we’re grateful to all of you who supported us as audiences, performers and volunteers.
We’re especially glad to look back at the first and last performances we had this season and see the unwavering support that Tulsa has shown us. Here’s a couple of pics of the first show of our season (Legally Blonde: The Musical) followed by the last one (The Sound of Music), where we were thrilled to entertain sold-out crowds at the Williams theatre:
Thank you, Tulsa audiences. Keep staying with us as we get bigger and better!
No doubt that you’ve seen that theatre is in the local news – with budget cuts looming to the Tulsa PAC and Henthorne Performing Arts Center.
This issue raises an important questions we should all be asking ourselves right now…
Why do we support theatre?
Theatre Tulsa is bringing Broadway Bootcamp back this summer – and we’ve made it better than ever!
Broadway Bootcamp gives young people the opportunity to learn about musical theatre in a fun, supportive environment – surrounded by friends and taught by a team of Tulsa’s most experienced, enthusiastic theatre directors and teachers.
Happy Thanksgiving week to all you theatre lovers! I haven’t posted in a long time and I’ve wanted to! But, ma-an! It’s been nuts at Theatre Tulsa — in a good way! We’ve been a little busy, to say the least.
Everyone on Facebook is giving thanks for the things in their life that make it special and I want to do the same here…
Ohmigod, ohmigod you guys!
Those lyrics have pretty much been running through my head non-stop for the past 3 months. And now that this incredible, exciting, wild ride known as Legally Blonde is finally over, well, I already miss them! If you’ve ever been involved acting in or producing a show (even one as massive as LB) you know what I mean.
“Ohmigod you guys!” Honestly, no other phrase could describe the incredible thanks I have for all of you who came out big time to support LB. More than 2,500 of you came out, filling the seats at the John H. Williams theatre and rocking the house each and every show. Over 2,500!
Ohmigod you guys!!!!
