Comedy, Plays and Tributes

While many of our major performing arts companies take the summer off, there are still plenty of shows to enjoy in June.

At the Tulsa PAC, Beatles fans won’t want to miss 1964 … The Tribute on June 7, which will wow audiences with what many believe to be the best Beatles tribute band in existence. Don’t forget to swing back by on June 20 for comedian Brad Williams.

Speaking of comedy, River Spirit Casino Resort offers two such performances this month: Andrew Schulz on June 15 and Oklahoma native Trey Kennedy on June 29. Other Tulsa offerings include magician/improv artist and actor Michael Carbonaro, June 15 at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, and the play Always a Bridesmaid, June 7-16 at the Broken Arrow Community Playhouse. 

In Oklahoma City, visit the Civic Center Music Hall for The Flying Dutchman, presented by Painted Sky Opera. The show follows a sea captain, cursed to roam the waters for eternity until he finds his true love. Lyric Theatre welcomes Mary Poppins – the story of the quirky, lovable nanny – at the Civic from June 25-29. And you should make a trip to Edmond’s Armstrong Auditorium for the stunning sounds of the musical trio Barnatan, Zorman and Peled. 

Across the state, don’t miss Raise the Roof at Duncan’s Little Theatre, June 7-9; Sunday in the Park with George, through June 9 at the Ponca City Playhouse; and comedian Kevin Hart, June 22 at Thackerville’s Winstar World Casino and Resort.
