As the hot weather rolls into the Oklahoma plans, it will surely be nice to cool off with some theatrical entertainment.

In Tulsa, Celtic Throne: The Royal Journey of Irish Dance stomps into town July 1 at the Tulsa PAC.

Also at the PAC, the Falun Dafa Association of Oklahoma presents Shen Yun on July 31. Combining music and dance, the show portrays the magic of heavenly realms, ancient legends and heroes. 

If you find yourself in OKC on July 3, OKC Phil presents Red, White and Boom at the illustrious Scissortail Park.
