Interested in volunteering or performing in the Drunkard or 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. The Drunkard is a unique production, a 19th Century melodrama presented in its true form. Audience participation is encouraged. There are even tomatoes you can throw at the villain! 

Doors open at 7:00pm
Sing-along starts at 7:15pm
Show starts at 7:30pm


Now Directed by Mark Roberts & Chuck Osuna. 

Doors open at 7 p.m. A singalong of old-time popular songs begins at 7:15. The show starts at 7:30 with the Olio: dancers, musicians, jugglers, magicians, or comedians. The play begins at 8 p.m. and concludes around 10 p.m. with the audience and cast singing God Bless America. The auditorium is set up like a beer garden. Audience members are seated at private tables, which is why reservations are so important. During intermissions our serving crew will bring you concessions, chips, beer, wine, coffee, and soft drinks.

'The building is amazing. All the staff is super friendly. I will be back with friends. Better than Branson shows!!'
