Hello, again friends and welcome to another episode of Weekend Plans in Tulsa — Saint Patrick’s Days Weekend Edition for 2018.
Before we get into the St. Patty’s day festivities, I wanted to let you all know that this podcast is brought to you by your friends, OakTree Staffing & Training. This week, OakTree’s training wing just launched an exciting new feature called Microsoft Official Courses On-Demand. What does that mean? It means that your team can receive official Microsoft training courses online from absolutely anywhere for dramatically less cost than before! Most courses cost at least half the price of their in-person courses! Even more exciting is that, if your organization is a Microsoft customer, there’s a very good chance that your team can receive these courses at no additional cost to you! For details, log on to https://www.oaktreestaffing.com/microsoft-courses-online/ — You can find this full link and links to all of the events we discuss on this podcast at https://www.oaktreestaffing.com/blog.
Without further ado, let’s jump into this St Patty’s Day Weekend plans in Tulsa!
This weekend, the Tulsa Performing Arts Center is packed with amazing performances for everyone to enjoy.
Once again, running Now through March 18th will be Into The Woods – the classic fairy tale musical by Stephen Sondheim, with performances taking place at the Tulsa PAC John H Williams Theatre.
Happening now through Saturday, the American Theatre Company presents “A Steady Rain” — a Tony Award-winning show from the perspective of two Chicago police officers. This is a tragic comedy that is dark, gritty, and utterly hilarious. This play will be performed at the Tulsa PAC Liddy Doenges Theatre.
Also happening Friday through Sunday is the performance inspired by the 1945 ballet — Cinderella. This will be at the Tulsa PAC Chapman Music Hall.
For information on any of these performances, log on to http://tulsapac.com/
This Friday, enjoy an afternoon loaded with insightful and thought-provoking talks as TEDx brings their series to the University of Tulsa. The talks will take place at the Lorton Performance Center from noon to 5pm. Visit http://tedxuniversityoftulsa.com for details.
This Saturday night, the Tulsa Signature Symphony will perform Aaron Copeland’s Appalachian Spring for their special concert entitled “Made in America.” Ticket information can be found at http://www.signaturesymphony.org/
Also this Saturday, you’ll want to put on something green and head downtown for a few different St. Patrick’s Day festivals. First is the Tulsa Irish Festival at Guthrie Green featuring Cleghorn, Flannigan’s Right Hook, the Goode Academy of Irish Dance, and many others.
Second, will be St. Pat’s Block Party in the Blue Dome District. Arnies Bar and McNellie’s have teamed up to host outdoor stages and green beer pouring in all directions.
If you’re further South, no worries because George’s Pub in Jenks right off Main street will be hosting their own St. Patty’s Day Bash featuring Hughes & The Springfield Two as well as Barrett Lewis & Weston Horn.
This Sunday, for some great music for an amazing cause, stop by the Shrine at 18th and Boston for Brothers & Sisters of The Dirt, a Memorial Benefit for the late great Oklahoma picker, Brandon Jenkins.
