2020-2021 Season

Season 3: Stories of Our Humanity

Now more than ever we need reminders that we are one human family.  However, one’s identities, values, and beliefs contribute to the current state of polarization that is happening worldwide, and unfortunately, keeping us from one another. The shows in our 3rd season will explore the human reaction when we are met with difference, uncertainty, prejudice, oppression, rebellion, and injustice. We continue to ask the question, “Are we who we think we are?”  We find good people doing bad things and bad people doing good things, and bystanders doing nothing.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are experiencing a really long intermission but will be back in the Theatre in 2021!

He’s young, he’s broke, his landlord’s knocking at the door, and he’s just found out his wife is going to have a baby. To make matters even more desperate, Casey is fired from his gig as an Elvis impersonator in a run-down, small-town Florida bar. When the bar owner brings in a B-level drag show to replace his act, Casey finds that he has a whole lot to learn about show business—and himself.

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

Tulsa 21!

by Tara Brooke Watkins

Directed by Michelle Cullom                           June 3 – 13, 2021 – Buy Tickets Here!
Liddy Doenges Theatre,
Tulsa Performing Arts Center

This original production about the history of Tulsa’s Black Wall Street, the 1921 Massacre, and the current experiences of Tulsa today as a result of this history will take us on an emotional ride through a variety of true stories. The play weaves the narrative of the historical account of the Massacre with true stories of people who live in Tulsa today. These stories were collected in the summer 2017 and are told by a company of all-black actors living in Tulsa. The historical stories were collected by Mary E. Jones Parrish in 1921 just weeks after the disastrous event. All stories are based on factual archival research found in newspapers, TU, and OSU-Tulsa.
