 Radio station KMOK is far from OK. Of the three radios stations serving the Tulsa area in 1949, it ranks fourth in popularity.

American Theatre Company takes a great deal of pride in the fact that, with the exception of the source material, its annual holiday production of “A Christmas Carol” is an all-Tulsa creation.

The script and the songs were written by ATC founding members Bob Odle and Richard Averill, the show’s set was designed by Richard Ellis, and the costumes were designed by Jo Wimer.
