“Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” continues at Tulsa Performing Arts Center

Theatre Tulsa presents “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” by Tennessee Williams at 2 p.m. March 21 and 8 p.m. March 25-27, 2010, at the Liddy Doenges Theatre, Tulsa Performing Arts Center in Tulsa, OK. The production is directed by Lisa Stefanic and the stage is managed by April Harris.
General admission is $16 and $11 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.tulsapac.com or by calling (918) 596-7111.
According to a news release, the 1955 Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama centers on the family dynamics of a Mississippi plantation tycoon known as Big Daddy. Brick, his ex-football son, along with his trophy wife, Maggie, have gathered with his brother’s family to celebrate Big Daddy’s 65th birthday. Unbeknownst to Big Daddy is that he is dying of cancer and what ensues is each couple’s attempt to discredit the other and to put themselves in the position to inherit Big Daddy’s enormous wealth.
Stefanic says in a news release, “One of the components ‘Cat of a Hot Tin Roof’ deals with, are the struggles of honesty among others and, more importantly, being honest with yourself. That’s a big challenge in today’s world. Our society is dominated both culturally and politically by people who excel in avoiding the truth; in spinning their message-and simple, courageous honesty is becoming lost in the battle. I think the story of people literally fighting their way though hypocrisy toward an honest account of who they are is quite timely.”
The Theatre Tulsa’s production consists of the following cast members: Jeremy Sheldon as Brick, Sara Wilemon as Maggie, Charles Whitson as Big Daddy, Karyn Maio as Big Mama, Kurt Harris as Gooper, Amy Lee as Mae, Robert Young as Reverend Tooker, Starr Hardgrove as Dr. Baugh, Margie Jenkins as Sookey, and Cole Jett as Lacey.
Theatre Tulsa is a proud member of the American Association of Community Theatre, Oklahoma Community Theatre Association, Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and a recipient of the 2009 Tulsa Award for Theatre Excellence for outstanding production.


Editor’s Note: The March 20 performance was canceled due to weather, and tickets will be honored at 8 p.m. Wed., March 24, 2010,  at the Liddy Doenges Theatre, Tulsa Performing Arts Center in Tulsa, OK.

Theatre Tulsa presents British farce “What the Butler Saw”

The production is directed by Jim Queen and is recommended for mature audiences only.
Geraldine does her best to comply, but nothing is going to work smoothly in this nut house that includes Mrs. Prentice, a nymphomaniac who is seduced by a bellhop in a hotel (or is it the other way around?). What follows is a wild melee of disappearances, disguises and discoveries as husband and wife try to hide their prizes from one another and from the state inspector.

Theatre Tulsa presents “Laundry & Bourbon” and “Lone Star”


Theatre Tulsa presents “Laundry & Bourbon” and “Lone Star” at 8 p.m. July 9-11
at Liddy Doenges Theatre, Tulsa Performing Arts Center.
“Laundry & Bourbon” takes place on a dusty front porch in Maynard,
Texas. As the afternoon sun beats down, Elizabeth and Hattie catch up on
small town tales between TV commercials and piles of boxer shorts. When
Amy Lee, the town gossip, stops by unexpectedly the bourbon flows and
the laundry flies. There are rumors about Roy, Elizabeth’s husband, but
Elizabeth may have an even bigger secret under wraps.
“Lone Star” follows Roy, a Vietnam vet, and his brother Ray as they
drink the night away out back of Angel’s Bar. Roy loves his wife and he
loves his ’59 T-Bird, but nothing else seems certain anymore. A case of
beer and several candy bars later (and after a contentious visit from
Cletis, an old high school acquaintance), Ray reveals some hard and
explosive truths. Roy is left with a two options – keep running, or
stand tall and face his future.
Both plays contain strong language and are recommended for mature
audiences only. Tickets are only $5. For more information, call (918) 587-8402 or go online to http://www.theatretulsa.org.
