Tulsa Community College’s (TCC) “The Lion in Winter,” directed by Vern Stefanic, ran Feb. 26-28 and Mar. 3-6 in the Studio Theatre of the Performing Arts Center for Education (PACE). More than a student production, the show added professional actors, Lisa Stefanic and Kurt Harris, to add to the educational experience for TCC theatre students. Richard the Lionheart was played by Bixby High School alum, Tim Welch.

The play’s story-line involves Henry II (played by Kurt Harris) and Eleanor of Aquitaine his wife (played by Lisa Stefanic), who have three sons. Henry is starting to think about who will become the next king, and all three sons think they will wear the crown.
