Artistic Director Sara Phoenix will be taking a sabbatical from Theatre Tulsa for the remainder of 2019.

Sara will be working on several professional projects both in Tulsa and out of state during this time. Her upcoming projects include directing “The Tempest” for the Tulsa PAC Trust’s Orbit Initiative, which opens in June 2019. She will also be adjudicating at AACTFest, a national theatre festival hosted by the American Association of Community Theatres, in Gettysburg, PA, this summer.

She will be back to direct Matilda The Musical for Theatre Tulsa in the spring of 2020.

In the meantime, the responsibilities of Artistic Director will be split between Executive Director Jarrod Kopp and TT board member Jay Leland Krottinger. Kopp has served as TT’s Executive Director for 5 years. Krottinger is Founding Partner of Square 1Theatrics and is a Tony, Drama Desk and Olivier Award winning Broadway producer. Between Kopp and Krottinger’s leadership, they will carry out the community enrichment, outreach and education goals set forth by Sara and the Theatre Tulsa board of directors.

TT is excited to experience continued growth, and looks forward to presenting its next season of new productions for the Tulsa community.
