Greetings friends. This is Ken again from OakTree Staffing & Training to bring you Weekend Plans in Tulsa — your commute-length weekend events podcast for T-Town. This episode, I’ll be letting you know what’s happening the weekend of February 8th through the 11th.

Before we get started, I just wanted to pay for this podcast by letting you know about OakTree Staffing & Training. Nobody likes to job hunt. It’s a pain. What if I told you that someone else could job hunt for you? Well, it’s true. Contact OakTree to get hooked up with a career professional who will hold your hand through every step of the process. Do you know what’s also a pain? Employee training. OakTree has fixed that as well. As a Microsoft Certified Learning Partner, OakTree can bring training for your entire staff — either instructor-led or online from absolutely anywhere, anytime, at any most any pace. Also, if your company is a Microsoft customer, there’s a good chance that your training through OakTree could be on Microsoft’s tab.

Ok, let’s start this week’s show starting with events running all or most of the weekend. For fans of the theatre, don’t miss The Crucible being performed at the Henthorn Performing Arts Center by the Clark Youth Theatre. It’s got everything — a period piece, accusations of witchcraft, the Red Scare , I could keep going. Learn more about it and show times at http://www.clarkyouththeatre.com/

Ballet fans and Gershwinites unite for “Strictly Gershwin” at the Tulsa PAC. Over 40 ballet dancers, 14 tap dancers, 45 musicians, four singers, all packed onto one stage. Take a date or the kids and make a night of it. Learn more at http://tulsaballet.org/

Still somewhat in the Tulsa area is the The Greater Tulsa Indian Art Festival in Glenpool this weekend. This is the largest inter-tribal art show in the area with exhibitions, traditional dancing, story telling, and a a tribal language symposium. This is at the Glenpool Conference Center with more information at http://tulsaindianartfestival.com

Simplify your weekend with simple pleasures — yep, I’m talking about model trains at the Great Train Show. Hundreds of model trains will be on display with everything you could need for your train set for sale at the Expo Square – River Spirit Expo. Full steam ahead at http://trainshow.com/tulsa/

While dad and the kids are having fun watching trains fly around the track, mom and the ladies can hit up the Women’s Living Expo right next door also at Expo Square.

For events happening on Saturday, Bob Dylan fans, eat your heart out at Dylan in the Classroom hosted by the University of Tulsa’s new Institute for Bob Dylan Studies. Yep, that’s a real thing. This event will draw together scholars, teachers, and museum directors to explore the ways in which both Dylan’s music—and popular music more generally—can be successfully taught and studied from elementary classrooms through high school and college. This event will be at the Gilcrease Museum with more info at https://calendar.utulsa.edu/

For your favorite fairly clean comedian, enjoy Jim Gaffigan this Saturday night at the River Spirit Casino.

Hey, have you even had the desire to dress like a child and then drink in public? Yeah, me either, but for those who do, you can attend the Onesie Pub Crawl this Saturday. Jump into your footie pajamas and hit the town. Stops include Inner Circle, The Hunt Club, Soundpony, and Yeti. Tickets include one drink at each venue.
