Give our regards to Broadway! This glittering blockbuster performance promises to be the entertainment event of the year. With a huge cast of performers (including guest tap dancers!), guest vocalists, and the incomparable music of George and Ira Gershwin, you will be transported to the golden age of Hollywood. Derek Deane’s choreography is a glamorous and complex blend of classical ballet and the unmistakable moves of 1920’s Broadway that will captivate you all evening.
Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the magic of Tulsa Ballet. Preview Night offers you the chance to enter the PAC theater early and watch as the cast and crew prepare for a performance of Strictly Gershwin. Watch the dancers take their warmup class, hear from the artistic and production staff about what goes into putting a ballet onstage, then sit back and enjoy the Company’s final dress rehearsal, presented as a complete production from start-to-finish, as well as observe first-hand how final adjustments are made at the on-site production table. All tickets behind the production table have been discounted to $25 – no code necessary! Want a closer look? We’ve also discounted all available seats in front of the table to $50 each.
Preview Night brings you all the behind-the-scenes sneak peeks with a delicious, heady twist! Preview Night patrons will have the opportunity to purchase unique craft beer, available only on Preview Night.
