Meet Theatre Pops
Theatre Pops was established in 1989 by David Valla and Tom Schoenenberger as a group specializing in British sex farces. They continued until 1991, when Mr. Valla left for Los Angeles and gave the company to Ken Spence and Randall Whalen. Their first production was A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Philbrook Museum of Art.
Theatre Pops is an original member of SummerStage Tulsa. We focus on telling good, contemporary stories that an audience can relate to and shows with a strong message.
Some of our productions have included shows by David Mamet, Edward Albee, and Jane Martin. We have produced Bash: Latter Day Plays by Neil LaBute, Man From Nebraska by Tulsa’s own Tracy Letts, Dinner With Friends by Donald Margulies, Other People’s Money by Jerry Sterner, Eye of God by Tulsa’s own Tim Blake Nelson, as well as many others.
We will continue to challenge ourselves, focus on the story, and bring excellent theatre to Tulsa for years to come!
