Howdy friends and welcome to another episode of Weekend Plans in Tulsa and OKC — your source for what the heck is happening in your neighborhood this weekend. In this episode, we’ll be running through the first weekend in November 2017. That’s right — it’s already November and we’ll be running through some stuff you won’t want to miss for the 3rd through the 5th.
Before we get off and running, I just wanted to thank the sponsor of this program: OakTree Staffing & Training out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. If you’re not the happiest you could be with your job or you’re looking for a new career at all, get hooked up with an OakTree recruiter who will act as your personal job hunter. Look through the job board to find the perfect position for you. Also, if your team is needing to sharpen their IT skills, look no further than OakTree. As a Microsoft certified training partner, OakTree Staffing & Training can get your team the training they need from absolutely anywhere. If you’re a Microsoft customer, there’s also a decent chance that Microsoft has already picked up your bill. Learn all about this at www.oaktreestaffing.com.
Ok, let’s jump into the weekend starting with events happening all or most of the weekend in Tulsa, OK.
The Tulsa PAC is hosting two great shows this weekend, the first being the Tulsa Balet Presents: Don Quixote. The other masterpiece is Amadeus based on the life of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Both of these shows are running all weekend long and you can learn more at www.tulsapac.com.
