The first show of the 47th season of the Tahlequah Community Playhouse is coming soon!  Show dates are September 18- 20, 2020  and September 25-27, 2020. All performances are held at the Tahlequah Armory Municipal Center, 100 North Water Ave., Tahlequah, Ok. The play is about a cast of has-been actors who plan to revive their careers in “Drop Dead”, a potboiler murder mystery directed by “Wonder Child of the Broadway Stage”, Victor Le Pewe (a psychotic eye twitching megalomaniac).  But when the murders and mysteries exceed those in the script-these thespians must save the show and their careers as well as their lives!

Tahlequah Community Playhouse Covid-19 Considerations

A special committee of community theater members recently met at the Armory to formulate plans for offering the first play of the 47th season.  The Board of TCP realized that patrons of the theater have concerns about attending a live performance.  To allay those fears the committee met to decide on spacing for tables for dinner theater, mask requirements, food service, additional restroom cleaning, and reduced seating for both dinner and show only capacity.   With these plans in place, the theater hopes to offer a return to some level of normalcy as we all adjust to a new reality for the fall and possibly for the remainder of this season.   Season tickets are still available.  The cost is $110 for dinner and the show and $55 for show only season tickets. Dinner is catered by The Red Rooster Bistro and Bakery in Wagoner, Oklahoma. 

TCP Erwin Winners
Tahlequah Community Playhouse, Inc. is pleased to announce the winners of the 46th Erwin Awards. The Erwin Awards were named for Erwin Turner, one of the founding members of troupe.  TCP generally has four productions a year. The Tahlequah Armory Municipal Center was closed during the lock down, so the fourth play of the season was cancelled. It has since been added to the current season. Due to the pandemic, the annual banquet and awards ceremony was also cancelled.  However, season ticket holders and patrons who came to all three shows were able to vote for their choice in 16 categories.  We would like to thank all those who voted.
