OSP’s mission: The mission of Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park is to produce bold, re-imagined, entertaining and accessible interpretations of Shakespeare and the classics.  We are committed to promoting the highest level of artistic excellence, to cultivating the widest possible audience and to contributing to the economic and cultural growth of our community, state and region through the professional theatre experience and educational outreach programs.
