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!
