Lyric Theatre - When We're Gone: World Premiere Musical

In the spirit of Lyric’s hit production, The Who’s Tommy, When We’re Gone is a rock musical that follows Todd, an angst-ridden teen, in plague-ridden, 14th-century London and his desire to make great art in a time of great need. This wildly creative new musical strikes a brilliant balance of modern day characters, a pop-punk score and the life-changing events of 1349. Anyone who has ever wondered what life is all about will be enlightened, entertained and amazed. This musical contains adult language and adolescent themes. Words by Alana Jacoby Music by Scotty Arnold Directed by Michael Baron Groups discounts available!

Plaza Walls Mural Expo

to Sep 30

Plaza Walls Mural Expo

Oklahoma City's Premier Mural Exhibition

The Oklahoma Mural Syndicate is pleased to announce the lineup of artists and programming for its third annual Plaza Walls Mural Expo, presented by Spaces Real Estate and powered by Google. From its humble beginning as a pilot project of rotating outdoor murals, Plaza Walls has evolved to become Oklahoma’s best outdoor mural gallery, attracting world-class local and international talent. 

From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, twenty-four artists will make their mark upon the Plaza District’s historic walls as local DJs The Moneymakin’ Jam Boys and Nymasis bring the beats while emcees Sativa Prophets and  StuddaBudda entertain the crowd. This year’s artist lineup includes: Ackzilla, Amuse126, Anamarietta, Cassie Stover, Danielle O’Malley, Denise Duong, Dusty Gilpin, Dylan Bradway, Holey Kids, Jake Beeson, Jakey Cakes, Jason Pawley, JUURI, Kris Kanaly, Merlot, Monster Steve, Rhiana Deck, Sullystring, Sean Vali, Tony Thunder, Wane COD, and Yeehaw Pizza.

In addition to the new pieces being created in the alleys, the Oklahoma Mural Syndicate will debut four large-scale murals. Ohio-based artist Monster Steve takes over the Saints Pub Wall, sponsored by STAPLEGUN; Chicago-based artists Merlot and Amuse126 will cover the Everything Goes Dance Studio Wall, sponsored by Tinker Federal Credit Union; Puerto Rican artist Anamarietta will paint the Indiana Avenue Wall, sponsored by TokenEx; and Oklahoma City-native Denise Duong will bring her whimsical scenes to the newest alley wall alongside Lyric Theatre, sponsored by Paycom.

Each year, thousands of guests walk through the alley as artists create murals. In addition to this unique opportunity to see large-scale murals painted live, the Oklahoma Mural Syndicate is partnering with the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center to offer guests the opportunity to pick up a can of spray paint and contribute to a public mural on a temporary wall.

The Plaza Walls Expo would not be possible without its in-kind sponsors Mason Realty Investors, Waco of Oklahoma, HIS Paint, The Okay See, Walker Companies and Empire Slice House. For more information about the expo, including sponsorship opportunities, tours and artist inquiries, please contact plazawalls@gmail.com.

Lyric Theatre's Thelma Gaylord Academy - Seussical Jr.

Join Lyric's Thelma Gaylord Academy for a production of the smash hit, Seussical Jr! From Music Theatre International..."Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!"

Tickets available at www.thelmagaylordacademy.com and at the box office!

Lyric Theatre's Thelma Gaylord Academy - The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
May

to May 6

Lyric Theatre's Thelma Gaylord Academy - The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

Join Lyric's Thelma Gaylord Academy for a production of the Tony Award winning musical The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee! With four new audience members joining the show for each production and two separate casts of 9 insanely talented students, the show is guaranteed to be a delightful theatrical experience with a fresh feel each performance.

From Music Theatre International... "Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced, wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience. 

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake." 

Tickets available at www.thelmagaylordacademy.com and at the box office!

Thrive Mama Collective - Baby Signing Time

Thrive Mama Collective - Baby Signing Time

Join the Baby Signing Time revolution! Your baby can communicate with you using baby signs long before she is old enough to speak.

* Reduce tantrums!
* Stimulate early learning and build vocabulary
* Create a window into your child's mind and heart
* Instill confidence and security through understanding

Babies crawl before they walk, and sign before they talk! When a baby waves "bye-bye" or points at what they want, they are signing! It is natural for babies to communicate with signs. Baby Signing Time gives babies the signs they need to express their needs and wants. Clever songs and a fun environment make learning signs easy!

As a parent, you do not need to become fluent in sign language. Even learning a few signs like ‘milk’, ‘juice’ and ‘more’ can be helpful when communicating with your baby! Continue on with the full curriculum to learn helpful signs for everyday events like playtime, getting dressed, going places, getting ready for bed, manners and more.

Series 1 is a 4-week series for new families and will cover basic signs, food/drink, potty/diaper signs, pets, & family. This series runs for 4 consecutive weeks and the cost is $60/child. (Ask about sibling discounts) Baby Signing Time is for children ages 0-3

Series 1 will be offered:
Fridays @ 11am (4/20, 4/27, 5/4, & 5/11)

To reserve your spot in this class or for more information please email LeapsAndBoundsOKC@yahoo.com or contact me on Facebook!

**Preregister for the full 16-week course and save $20!!**
