Strictly Gershwin

February 8-11, 2024

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, live accompaniment from Tulsa Symphony Orchestra, and the incomparable music of George and Ira Gershwin, you will be transported to the golden age of Hollywood. Derek Deanes choreography is a glamorous and complex blend of classical ballet and the unmistakable moves of 1920s Broadway that will captivate you all evening.

Preview Night

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.

Doors for Preview Night will open at 6:15 and the show will begin at 7:00. Between 6:15 and 7:00, the curtain to the stage will remain open as the Tulsa Ballet staff go over various calls and cues as Managing Director Scott Black explains the process and interview members of the artistic and production team.
