Local theater companies struggle to find a pool of diverse racial groups for roles in some plays.


Performing Arts

Mark Beutler

But when it comes to the theater community, especially in Oklahoma City, finding a racially diverse pool of talent for certain shows is difficult, according to local casting directors. Whether looking for an actor who is black, Asian or Hispanic, casting directors said Oklahoma City just doesn’t have enough actors to fill certain roles.
