Time : Various Location : Tulsa Performing Arts Center SummerStage Tulsa is a performing arts festival held during June and July in the Tulsa Performing Arts Centers various theatre spaces. Performances include a variety of disciplines from musicals, drama, comedy and dance to cabaret theatre events. SummerStage Tulsa provides local arts groups and individual artists the opportunity to work together in forming a showcase of artists from Tulsa and the surrounding communities. The result is a cohesive, colorful, balanced, diverse and high-energy festival that culminates in a unique departure from main season arts events and one that offers something for everyone. The Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust is a major sponsor of the festival providing free rent/security and administrative support to all participants. SummerStage Tulsa history SummerStage was originally organized in the 1980s to provide entertainment opportunities at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center in the off-season. With no major productions scheduled during the summer months, the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust offered to underwrite the cost of rent and security to five local arts organizations if they would produce events during July and August. In 2003, the Board of Trustees created a task force to examine the SummerStage festival and to produce a new model that would better reflect the Tulsa community as a whole. The festival was expanded from six to eight weeks and provided a greater variety of entertainment choices. The task force wanted to see more family events, more dance, more world music and the participation of more local artists from Tulsas diverse community. Today SummerStage includes more than 30 local artists and arts organizations performing in approximately 40 different events. SummerStage Tulsa continues to grow as we see the roots of Tulsa Fringe taking shape. Address: 110 East 2nd Street Days/Hours: Mon-Fri. 9 am- 5:30 pm Admission: Various fees and festival passes.
