Theatre Tulsa’s opening night performance of “A Little Night Music” turned out to be the last show at the Tulsa PAC before the facility decided to close in response to the current health crisis.
“We’ve been working with the PAC to reschedule our last three shows of the season, and they have been great to deal with,” said Jarrod Kopp, the company’s executive director.
The company is posting images from past shows to its Facebook page and asking viewers to share their memories of those shows.
He added that Kia Hightower, the company’s education coordinator, is creating daily lesson plan assignments for the students involved in the upcoming production of “Frozen Jr.” to continue rehearsing their parts at home.
HELLER THEATRE COMPANY
Heller Theatre is looking at live-streaming its monthly “Second Sunday Serials” shows beginning in April, although the company isn’t quite sure how to do the interactive portion of the event, where the audience selects the short plays they want to see in the next episode.
The company is postponing its production of “Double Feature” until a later date, but it is still accepting submissions of short original plays for its annual “Heller Shorts” show. Deadline is April 15. For information: hellertheatreco.com.
An original online theater concept is expected to go live this week, as Solum Ensemble presents an original radio-style play titled “The Third Alpha” by Tulsa writer Michael Wright.
“We’ll be doing episodic plays, about 10 minutes per episode,” said Machele Miller Dill, who is coordinating the project. “I’m going to create a dedicated Facebook page for this. And I hope to do a lot of these because I had about 200 people who responded that they wanted to take part.”
