Mission & History

Our vision: Presenting contemporary and original theatre to raise awareness and open minds through art.

Compelling, Provocative, Engaging

Heller Theatre Company has a long history as a cultural resource for the community and is a valued member of the Tulsa arts scene. After more than 30 years as a part of the Tulsa Parks and Recreation Department, HTC is beginning a new era as an independent, non-profit organization. Our vision and goals remain the same – to foster creativity, love of the arts and community. The 2014-2015 HTC Season will be a time of change.  Although it is a new venture in a sense, we carry with us a celebrated lineage that allows for sustainability and an opportunity for future growth.

Heller Theatre plans to continue serving up the best of contemporary comedy and drama. This is accomplished through presentation of a regular season of live performances,education and outreach happenings for the community, and successful public and private partnerships to encourage the arts as a viable sector of local economics and community development. We will continue to host the Heller Shorts Festival, a short play festival of original works by Green Country playwrights, as well as Laughing Matter, Oklahoma’s longest running comedy improv troupe.
