Performances abound this month. Visit the Tulsa PAC to see two Theatre Tulsa productions: Matilda the Musical Aug. 13-29 and The Guys Aug. 27-Sept. 5. The first production tells the story of a magical girl with the gift of telekinesis. Based on the beloved book and the popular movie, Matilda is perfect for audiences of all ages. The Guys, part of Theatre Tulsa’s play series, follows a fire captain after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, as he works to put together eulogies for the fallen. Celebrity Attractions is back in action this month with Escape to Margaritaville from Aug. 31-Sept. 5, also at the Tulsa PAC. This show welcomes guests to Margaritaville, “where people come to get away from it all – and stay to find something they never expected.” 

In OKC, Cityspace Theatre presents Hansel and Gretel through Aug. 1. Visit the Civic Center Music Hall as Opera Amici and Painted Sky Opera offer up an artful take on a lauded fairytale. The Oklahoma International Dance Festival continues through Aug. 7 at the University of Central Oklahoma, offering dancers the opportunity to receive top-of-the-line instruction.

In Cement, the Cement Opry runs Aug. 7 at 410 N. Main. The performance, a monthly live variety show, showcases talented Oklahomans from around the state.
