Tulsa Performing Arts Center

Known as the Oil Capital of the World, Tulsa is more than a bunch of oil barons living large off the income generated by black gold. It’s a complex blend of history, stunning countryside, and offering an artistic side that is applauded by the entire nation, with its cultural epicenter being the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. Today, we at StayInTulsaOK want to share the story of this historic performance spot, inviting you to explore the shows they offer while also enjoying comfortable adventures at home in our Tulsa sanctuaries.

Located at 110 E 2nd Avenue

Built in 1977, Tulsa Performance Arts Center (we call it Tulsa PAC for short) was 100% funded by the people of Tulsa, who wanted a place where the biggest performers could feel comfortable and at home. It’s first concert, held on March 19, 1977, featured the Tulsa Philharmonic and perhaps the greatest of great in the music world, the divine Ella Fitzgerald. Since that first concert, the center has worked to satisfy its mission of elevating the arts, offering everything from music to theater to children shows that will thrill and delight the tiniest of travelers. As an example of children’s programming, Baby Shark’s Big Broadway Tour is currently performing, but may not be by the time you are reading this. The Tulsa Ballet, Opera, and Symphony have all taken the big stage, as have had top comedians (Steve Martin), top singers (Michael Bublé), and even former celeb chef Anthony Bourdain has shone in the spotlight of Tulsa PAC.

Something Extra

In addition to its stellar performing contributions, the center is also famous for its costume collection, housing over 50,000 costumes that actors from many Tulsa acting companies can borrow for free, only paying for any repairs that may be needed or to have the costumes cleaned after use, and because the cost of costumes can be prohibitive, this simple act can be the reason the shows are always able to go on. Their latest community activity, Arts in the Air, a free outdoor event series, came about during the pandemic, when the doors had to be shut but they still wanted to bring art to a world that so desperately needed something to help them forget their troubles.
