Arts Against the Odds – Protest and Performance

Hey! Look who was downtown today  at City Hall!


Heather and Logan opposing cutting eliminating Clark Theater from the city budget. 


Heather and Logan were not alone. There was a bunch of kids there enthusiastically exercising their right of free speech. They were spirited and loud and very enthusiastic and very polite. I loved it.


Their parents were there and they were getting into it also. It was a great vibe going on. They were there because there was a city council meeting tonight to discuss the Mayor’s proposed budget that involves closing the theater. Found out all about it here. – Tulsa, Oklahoma – News, Weather

(Of course some of us more cynical people are wondering why we are just rocking along and then all the sudden we need to cut about 200 jobs to balance the budget.)

And so what do you think happened after the rally? Well I’ll tell you what theater kids do, they perform. Many of the protestors hurried on down to Henthorne Performing Arts Center for a recital.


Some of the kids did various improv skits. They were great and they were funny, of course.


Logan wasn’t in the improv part of the recital he recited a monologue that he had been working on for some time.


All the kids did great, get up there and take a bow guys! We are proud of all of you!

    It obviously doesn’t matter what part of the world you live in, local councils always seem to cut funding for the vulnerable yet find money for the “oddballs”. You’re very aware of Logan’s needs, I’m very aware of pensioners needs – it’s all so wrong in so many ways.


    Don’t get me started on the government these days….and city council….UGH!!! I deplore everything they stand for these days. Always cutting budgets yet giving themselves raises. No matter WHAT level of government.

    Okay…I’ll shut up now.

    I hope your local politicians listen to these polite protestors! If they do, it will be such a positive experience for Logan and his friends…not to mention their parents.

    Hooray for the kids!! I’m with Hootin Anni — don’t even get me started on the government at any level on both sides of the fence!! I’d flush them all down the commode and start over if I could!! And, yes, I’ll shut up now, too!!!

    I love that these kids are being shown how to stand up for what they believe in. I hope it makes a difference. Perhaps there can be a grassroots campaign to raise money to support the PAC if all else fails. Go Logan and Heather (and Alan of course)!
