Welcome one and all to another episode of Weekend Plans in Tulsa, your commute-length, dishwasher-loading length, sorry excuse for a workout length podcast that helps you plan out your weekend in Tulsa. We do this by bringing you a variety of events and music that you may want to check out. As a reminder, a full transcript of this podcast, as well as any associated event links, can be found on this episode’s page at https://www.oaktreestaffing.com/blog/.
I just have to remind you all that this podcast is brought to you by the one and only OakTree Staffing & Training in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Let’s just face it — you would rather peel a raw onion apart with your bare hands than search for a new job. It’s brutal! Why put yourself through that when you can work with a career professional through OakTree Staffing & Training so they can peel those onions for you. In addition to jobs, finding the right training for your team can also be a confusing mess. When you work with the friendly training staff of OakTree, they can help you find employee training that fits your budget, your schedule, and your learning style. If your organization is a Microsoft customer, there’s even a chance that your team can receive Microsoft training on the house — compliments of Microsoft. To learn about either of these wonderful parts of OakTree, visit https://www.oaktreestaffing.com and tell them from Weekend Plans in Tulsa! Let’s hop into the events!
Happening Friday through Sunday is the live version of one of your favorites – Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. Join Charlie Bucket, Veruca Salt, Augustus Gloop, Violet Beauregard, Mike Teavee, and Charlie’s disability-faking Grandpa Joe as they explore Willy Wonka’s wonderful chocolate factory. This will be performed at the Tulsa Little Theatre at 1511 S Delaware with ticket information at http://www.encore-tulsa.com/

Also on Saturday, enjoy the Will Eisner Comic Fest at the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. The event will celebrate the career of Will Eisner, a comic book innovator of the ’30s and ’40s as well as celebrating comic book culture of today — including a showcase of graphic novels, a local artist’s table, panel discussions and even a cosplay contest.

This Saturday night, get ready for Purim! Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the triumph of Mordechai (YAY) over the evil Haman (BOO!) as written about in the Book of Esther. How is it traditionally commemorated, you ask? With a costume party and drinking of course and there’s better Purim party than the one taking place this Saturday night at Inner Circle Vodka Bar, as hosted by the Jewish Federation of Tulsa. The cost is $10, but you get in free if you dress like royalty. Learn more at http://jewishtulsa.org
