Community Partnership

Sometimes a show comes along that presents a perfect opportunity for strong community partnerships. RACE by David Mamet is one of those shows. RACE centers around a rich white man who has been accused of raping a young African American woman. He turns to a multicultural law firm for his defense, and his lawyers – one white, one black – find themselves confronting their own biases and assumptions regarding race and race relations in America. Through RACE, Pulitzer Prize winner David Mamet reveals “the lies we tell each other on the subject” of race, without dictating what we should think or do. What is exciting about Theatre Pops’ production of RACE is that we have partnered with four community organizations that are committed to providing cross-racial conve...

Happy Saturday!

Spring has finally sprung in Tulsa. It is a transition season, one that brings forth new life and beginnings. Well, Theatre Pops has undergone some transitions as well, and because of this, we have a really exciting change to our 2014-2015 season lineup. “Bard Fiction” will be replacing “Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike” in April 2015.

Change & Community

Why did we change our lineup? The answer is a simple one: We are a community theatre company. And it isn’t a coincidence that the word community appears twice in our mission statement. Our community is everything to us...

Theatre Trivia Question of the Day: Day 3!

Hello There!

It’s Day 3, which means we’re giving you another sneak peek into our 2014-15 season! Today’s clue:

What does this “paragraph” have to do with our season?

You need a fair fight. And who wouldn’t want to believe… that good will triumph over evil? But just who is the cat and who is the mouse here? Each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. All of them feel the futility of their lives dribbling away. They are remarkable both for their comic turns and for their enormous depth. Even for the heartsick, laughter is truly the best medicine. It is also something darker, stranger and a wickedly fun tennis match of words. You will leave… emotionally wrung out and exhausted from laughing, but it’s the heartbreak that is as memorable as the hilarity.

And just because w...

This is a very exciting week for us at Theatre Pops. Why, you might ask? Well, we have a very BIG announcement for you this Friday at 3PM CST that will knock your collective socks off!

Throughout the week, we’ll also post “sneak peeks” to see who can guess what our big announcement will be (hint: you’ll know by tomorrow morning what our announcement will be pertaining “to”).
