Theatre Tulsa brings back its “Bard in the Garden” Shakespeare festival for a two-week run in a new location.
Theatre Tulsa’s annual Shakespeare production will perform the final two weekends in June in AHHA’s courtyard greenspace. This year’s show, performed in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Council of Tulsa, will be a full production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that will be free and open to the public.
Theatre Tulsa’s production of Midsummer will take advantage of the intimate performance space by creating an immersive show with audience interaction.
With the new location, we decided to give the audiences something they hadn’t experienced with previous ‘Bard’ shows. The staging is set all around and through the audience, with opportunities for the audience to become a part of the show.
The cast includes Pete Brennan as Oberon, Karlena Riggs as Titania, Jimmy Pike as Theseus and Tabitha Littlefield as Puck. Also featured are: Fletcher Gross, Lisa Hunter, Austin Reed, Kristin Robert, Ryan Mulligan, Audie Pritchett, Robert Young, Justin Tomlinson, Ryan Park, Jack Whitney, Sadie Luttrell, Caleb Stirewalt, Hilary Mulligan and Emmy Surber.
Theatre Tulsa’s “Bard in the Garden” festival strives to present Shakespeare that is accessible, immediate, and entertaining to all audiences. Performances will be at 7:30 pm, June 22-23 and 29-30 at AHHA, 101 E Archer St. in downtown Tulsa’s arts district. Admission is free, but reservations are recommended.

The “Bard in the Garden” festival is made possible by a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council.
