Thank you for joining us for Tinkerbell is Dead…Free Beer! on July 18. It was great fun and a wonderful seventh installment to the annual event.
The adults-only evening included two dozen pieces ranging from heartbreakingly tragic to gut-bustingly hilarious. Tinkerbell was the brainchild of the late, great Ken Spence, who began the tradition as a Saturday workshop for actors to practice monologues in front of their colleagues. Since 2004, Theatre Pops has presented Tinkerbell is Dead – named for the only recurring monologue, taken from Christopher Durang’s ‘dentity Crisis – each year with a revolving cast and slate of offerings.
Thank you to each and every audience member, who made the evening so much fun, and thanks also to our fabulous cast and our wonderful supporters at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust. Congratulations to our giveaway winners!
