Our 2015-2016 Season is our most ambitious season yet, with not one, but 2 musicals to offer!
“Tinkerbell is Dead… (and rolling over in her grave)” – June 27, 2015
The ninth annual “Tinkerbell is Dead (And Rolling Over In Her Grave)” hits the stage at IDL Ballroom for Tulsa Fringe 2015. Fresh, new faces will share the stage with your favorite “Tinkerbell” veterans. “Tinkerbell’s” traditional monologues will open and close the evening, but the rest are brand spankin’ new. Ranging from funny to dramatic to absurd to heartbreaking, co-directors Dave Garcia and Charles Kevin Smith have created an exciting evening of stand-up theatre. More information can be found here.
“Monty Python’s Spamalot” – August 7 – 23, 2015
Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, SPAMALOT retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?

“All New People” – October 8 – 11, 2015
Charlie’s plan to end it all in his upscale Jersey Shore beach home is interrupted by an unexpected visit from Emma, a British ex-pat and real estate agent. Emma and a call girl, along with the town’s drug-dealing fire chief, hang out with Charlie to cheer him up in this dark comedy by Zach Braff. “Variety” called it a “morbidly funny play about the trendy new existential condition of being young, adorable and miserable.” Rick Harrelson, Meghan Hurley, Gavin Wells and Anna Bennett star in this play directed by George Romero.

“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill” – February 11-14, 2016
The time is 1959. The place is a bar in Philadelphia. The audience is about to witness one of Billie Holiday’s last performances, given four months before her death. You’re invited to join Theatre Pops at IDL Ballroom for this very special Billie Holiday musical theatre performance this Valentine’s weekend featuring some of the most glorious songs ever written, including “God Bless the Child,” “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” “Strange Fruit,” and “Taint Nobody’s Biz-ness.” It’s an intimate evening, up close with a legend. So pull up a chair and order up a drink because she’s got a life to sing.
Special dinner & show package available with a scrumptious three-course dinner crafted by Tallgrass Prairie Table and Executive Chef Michelle Donaldson. To make reservations for this package, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

“Why Torture is Wrong, and the People Who Love Them” – April 21-24, 2016
Christopher Durang turns political humor upside down with this raucous and provocative satire about America’s growing homeland “insecurity.” WHY TORTURE IS WRONG, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEM tells the story of a young woman suddenly in crisis: Is her new husband, whom she married when drunk, a terrorist? Or just crazy? Or both? Is her father’s hobby of butterfly collecting really a cover for his involvement in a shadow government? Why does her mother enjoy going to the theatre so much? Does she seek mental escape, or is she insane? Honing in on our private terrors both at home and abroad, Durang oddly relieves our fears in this black comedy for an era of yellow, orange and red alerts.
