In the summer of 2018, two like-minded theatre companies with the same goals and love of theatre arts joined forces. Theatre Pops and American Theatre Company merged and became the new American Theatre Company.
About American Theatre Company
In the summer of 1970, Kitty Roberts and a group of former University of Tulsa students founded American Theatre Company as a professionally-oriented theatrical company. ATC’s popularity grew through many incredible shows, including its annual production of A Christmas Carol. In recent years ATC has been honored with six TATE Awards for productions including Waiting for Godot, Twelve Angry Men, and In The Next Room (The Vibrator Play). Founder Kitty Roberts was honored with the Mary Kay Place Legacy Award in 2013. ATC now performs shows both at the PAC and at their home, Studio 308, in downtown Tulsa.
About Theatre Pops
Founded in 1989, Theatre Pops is an award-winning theatre company located in the heart of downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma. Providing strong messages and compelling stories for and by the community we serve, Theatre Pops is “pulling back the curtain,” and putting the stories we tell and the community we serve at the heart of all we do. Theatre Pops has won multiple TATE awards for their productions including last June’s 2nd Place TATE award win for their critically lauded production of Disgraced.
