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!

History!

Monument map.png
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.
