Theatre for the Ears

Theatre for the Ears

One of Oklahoma Shakespeare's newer offerings, Theatre for the Ears promises to be a favorite for our patrons! Continuing our passion and belief in the power of words, this staged reading series is focused on works that enrich our culture through a classical literary view. Our company members and community artists meet for just a few rehearsals to analyze the material for the ultimate goal-to present outstanding works of literary art with a particular focus to the language that only trained and experienced performer can provide. By performing all around Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Shakespeare strengthens our ties to the Oklahoma community and gives our audiences a unique experience that couldn't be realized in a normal theatrical environment. Case in point- in 2012 Theatre for the Ears performed the rarely produced, albeit beautiful and important "morality play", Everyman in the stunning sanctuary of Saint Pauls Episcopal Cathedral. This environment provided a reverance for the work that would be hard to accomplish in any setting. 

Keep you eyes and ears open for the next performance!
