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.

The Drunkard and the Olio

It began on Nov. 14, 1953 and has never stopped! That’s how The Drunkard became America’s longest-running play. More than 3,000 Tulsans have participated on or offstage. More than a quarter-million have seen the show, making it a laughter-filled Tulsa tradition in which temperance triumphs and evildoers receive their merited fates. There are even tomatoes to throw at the villain!

Historical Monument Aug 6 2021IMG_1515.JPG

To honor and memorialize this gem of Tulsa history, a group of Spotlight patrons joined with donors from the community, architecture buffs, and the family of Patti Shriner to create this monument.

The Tulsa Spotlight Theatre Historical Monument is a black granite slab sourced from Sri Lanka. The monument literally "sets in stone" the significance and history of the Spotlight Theatre.  The monument is etched with text and historical photos telling the story of original owner Patti Shriner and building architect Bruce Goff.  It features Spotlight co-founder Richard Mansfield Dickinson, Tulsa Spotlighters, and a number of principal actors and performers who have graced the stage of the Spotlight Theatre over the decades.
