From its founding 85 years ago by a small group of women “to enlighten and entertain,” Tulsa Town Hall has broadened its commitment “to open minds and stir curiosities,” says Executive Director Kathy Collins.
TTH has grown from 400 subscribers to its first capacity crowd of over 2,200 in 1980 in Chapman Music Hall. TTH has been sold out or near capacity for the past five years.
Seasons are planned a year in advance, with individual topics typically planned by guest speakers, working with Tulsa Town Hall’s program committee. “Speakers must be dynamic, reflect the TTH mission, and they must be diverse, current and within budget,” Collins says. “Occasionally a speaker will be invited to return, particularly if they were popular and their topic remains relevant.”
Tulsa Town Hall’s PAC sessions are only available by subscription, offering open seating; no individual tickets are sold.
In 2018, TTH began evening sessions called “Tulsa Town Hall After Dark,” held once a year at Cascia Hall Preparatory School’s Performing Arts Center. It is “a way to reach beyond the near-capacity Friday morning audience,” Collins says.
To commemorate the 85th season, TTH memories will be projected on the big screen before lectures, as well as noted in issues of Intermission, the PAC’s official magazine. Tickets are available at tulsatownhall.com or by calling 918-749-5965.
