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!

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

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!!**

The Venue OKC - Jarvix
Mar
24
7:30 PM19:30

The Venue OKC - Jarvix

"A Benefit* for Dead Horses" comes with an asterisk because it isn’t actually a fundraiser concert. Like its Oklahoman performers–Jarvix, Beau Mansfield, and Sarah Reid–the show title is tongue-in-cheek and a little dark. It’s a reference to "beating a dead horse," and this one-of-a-kind show aims to remedy the often predictable state of live music in the Oklahoma City area.

With eclectic musical influences and hard-to-pinpoint styles, the three singer-songwriters already offer performances outside of the norm. However, with A Benefit* for Dead Horses, these artists will seek to expand the live show format as well. Show-specific bits and multi-media elements such as video will make the night memorable in a way that a typical bar venue show simply can’t.

This concert's chosen venue, The Venue OKC in the Plaza District, is a versatile event space that will serve as a listening room environment with drinks available for purchase.

A Benefit* for Dead Horses will take place on Saturday, March 24th. Doors open at 7:30 pm, and the show starts at 8:00 pm. Admission is $5. All ages are welcome.

 

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Jarvix has made waves lately with his live looping approach to music that incorporates anything from ukulele to rubber chicken to even music from audience members' cell phones. His growing popularity recently landed him a spot on Norman Music Festival's Main Stage for 2018.

Music: JarvixSchmarvix.com

Interview: http://okgazette.com/2016/12/23/jarvis-carries-his-ukulele-and-passion-for-music-all-around-okc/

Beau Mansfield has been a Norman figure for years, and his eclectic palette picks from pop, classic rock, R&B, and classical genres, to name just a few. Brought to life with keyboarded instruments, his material often reveals seasoned and clever musings about life and belongingness. 

Music: https://beaumansfield.bandcamp.com/

Interview: http://www.normantranscript.com/news/entertainment/unruly-norman-musician-headlines-blue-bonnet-bar-recital/article_757babee-1658-5f9a-866e-ae081cb0dbb7.html

Sarah Reid is a bit of a mystery. Whether performing hushed original folk songs on electric guitar or improvising live loops with a fiddle, her stage shows invoke otherworldly musical atmospheres that are often somber but not without an occasional veiled wit. Her quiet stage presence brings an extra layer of intimacy to her mesmerizing compositions.
