Welcome to Tulsa Spotlight Theatre

The Best Theater in Tulsa

And the spotlights dimmed but only for a time 

What is going on?

The Spotlight Theatre has a big family of audiences, fans, actors, producers, directors and administrators. We want everyone to be safe for many years to come. We have decided to suspend our performances until it is safe for all of you to enjoy all that the Spotlight Theatre has to offer. Join our mailing list and we will keep you posted on what is going on in the theatre. Thank you for your love and support over the years. We will do our best to weather this storm and after that we will offer you performances to make you laugh, cry and jeer.“

The Drunkard Goes Viral

Stephen Ryan has been performing at the Tulsa Spotlight Theatre for several years and has performed over a hundred times.   Along with Harvey Green, the villain, Stephen also portrays Joe Morgan, the drunkard, and Willie Hammond, the hero.  He has also performed in various other plays, mostly at Sapulpa Community Theater where he has appeared in Death of a Salesman, And Then There Were None and Every Christmas Story Ever Told.  Stephen would like to thank the Spotlight Theatre for the continued opportunity to perform and he is looking forward to returning to the stage again in a safe and healthy future. 

Annette Lorraine is no newcomer to the performing arts world. She has worked with the Ada Shakespeare Company on multiple occasions, including Viola in Twelfth Night, Horatio in Hamlet, and Hero in Much Ado About Nothing. She had also been the title character in Euripides Medea, and Catherine in Proof by David Auburn.

Annette Lorraine is a personal trainer as well as a dancer and choreographer, an avid hiker, and a dedicated yogi.

She is grateful for the opportunity to work in the theater world of Tulsa and sends her love to her family and friends, especially her mother. “Mom, you are my sunshine.”

Chase Mowery came to Oklahoma from Illinois. Coincidentally, his first part as an actor was as Will in Rodger and Hammerstein's classical musical, Oklahoma! He has performed in a variety of shows including Seussical the Musical, Dog Sees God, and Three Sisters. His toughest role to date was as Jerry in Edward Albee's The Zoo Story. His passion for the theater was stoked by Danny Grider, his high school director.
