Theatre Tulsa’s next show in its 95th season will be the highly-acclaimed drama “Amadeus” in November.
“Amadeus” is the fictionalized story of 18th-century composer Antonio Salieri, who seeks to destroy by any means necessary his brilliant and bawdy rival, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
This Tony Award winner for Best Play was written by Peter Shaffer, who later adapted it into an Academy Award-winning film.
“‘Amadeus’ is considered a modern classic, but it still electrifies audiences,” said Jarrod Kopp, Managing Director of Theatre Tulsa. “It combines art, high drama and the gifts of God into a single thrilling piece of theatre.”
The cast features Cody McCoy as Mozart, Will Carpenter as young Salieri, Sidney Flack as older Salieri, Erin Scarberry as Constanze Weber, Larry Cochran as Count Johann Killian Von Strack, Caleb Ricketts as Count Franz Orsini-Rosenberg and Andy Axewell as Baron Gottfried Van Swieten.
The ensemble cast includes Kody Burns, Kristin Fisher, Bob Roberts, Ann Lauderdale, Lisa Hunter, Audie Pritchett, Ben DeSpain, Tom Allen and Michael Williams.
The production is co-directed by Whitson Hanna and Jo Jo Nichols.
Performances will be Nov 3-11 in the John H. Williams Theatre of the Tulsa PAC. Showtimes on Nov. 3-4 and 10-11 are at 8 p.m. The Nov. 5 and 11 matinees will be at 2 p.m. Tickets are available at myticketoffice.com or by calling 918-596-7111.
