The ORBIT INITIATIVE 

is an educational endeavor by the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust that strives to reach beyond downtown to work with community partners citywide to provide theatrical and artistic education to anyone interested, ages 4-84, free of charge, and located within their community. The goal is to provide collaboration and fellowship for all of Tulsa’s communities through entertainment, education and performance that reflects Tulsa’s own unique diversity. Strong community partnerships are the bedrock of ORBIT. The primary objective is to reach out to those community members who feel theatre is out of their reach or is an elitist organization. Our approach is founded on a 360-degree, transformational experience of theatre of, by, and for the people of Tulsa. The disciplines included in this project are acting, dance/ movement, singing/vocal technique, and visual art, with master class opportunities in auditions, playwriting/poetry, and movement/dance. Getting the word out to every school, classroom and student will take some effort from not just the Tulsa Performing Arts Center and Trust, but also local schools, recreation centers and community partners. These community partners provide the space for classes and workshops to take place. We invite members of diverse communities to participate in workshops, take classes, attend performances, and, most importantly, to join in the creation of ambitious works of participatory theatre and help bridge communities together accentuating our similarities and diversity as motivation and strength as our city takes center stage. The ORBIT INITIATIVE is animated by the idea that theater is a place of possibility where the boundaries that separate us from each other in the rest of life can fall away. In essence, it is inviting the whole city to celebrate themselves.
