POSTED ON MAY 11, 2011:
Family Ties. Nightingale Theater, 1416 E. 4th St., has hosted some heart-pounding, teeth-chattering, pant-wetting, over-the-top
productions in the past and the latest work will most likely evoke the same response. Blood Relations follows the life and times of the
unbalanced Warren as he confronts his father who left him at birth.
Emotions run wild and the outcome is uncertain at best. Tune in
May 12-14 and 19-21 at 8pm. Visit nightingaletheater.org for more information.
Bronco Buster. Ropin' and wranglin' Green Country cowboys climb onboard some wild buckin' bulls at the 53rd Annual Rooster Days Rodeo at the Broken Arrow Round-Up Club Arena, Hwy. 51 and Oneta Rd. Bring the little buckaroos out for some calf-roping and steer-wrestling fun May 13-14 beginning at 8pm. After the riding comes to an end, the live music and boot scootin' begins. Visit brokenarrowruc.com for more information.
Live and Learn. The trial of an era comes to the Henthorne Performing Arts Center, 4825 S. Quaker. Gross Indecency: The Three Trials of Oscar Wilde brings to life the public spectacle that helped to make the controversial poet infamous. Intolerant of The Importance of Being Earnest and The Picture of Dorian Gray, British society in the late 1800s attempted to crucify Wilde for his art. See the drama unfold May 13-14, 20-22 & 24. Call 918-746-5065 for more information.
Pedaling Man. With skyrocketing gas prices, alternative modes of transportation are becoming increasingly
popular in Green Country. INCOG has partnered with other local organizations to teach Tulsa the benefits and essential know-hows of bike riding. Stop by Tom's Bicycles, 1506 E. 15th St., to "Gear Up," learn basic bike maintenance and prepare for the two-wheeled trek to work. Training Wheels: A Workshop Series for Bike Newbies has three remaining classes in the month of May. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Homerun Hound. Gather the crew, bring the glove and settle in at ONEOK Field, 201 N. Elgin, to watch the Tulsa Drillers take on the Northwest Arkansas Naturals at 7pm. Let the kids have their fill of $1 dog Monday and grab yourself a cold brew for a cool spring evening in the
ballpark. Friendly four-legged friends are even invited to join in America's favorite pastime and watch the game with their baseball loving owners. Visit
minorleaguebaseball.com for more information.
Tricks of the Trade. The stage is set and the
audience awaits the arrival of Tulsa's next performing phenomenon. The time has come to release all that bottled up talent and take the stage at the
Gypsy Coffee House, 303 N. Cincinnati, for open mic night. Beginning at 8pm, young and old will grab the microphone and show just what they're made of. Poets,
songwriters and comics alike should arrive early for sign-ups. Call
918-295-2181 for more information.
Floating Through. The vibrant colors of a distant canal spring to life in Frank Duchamp's Floating with Monet. Joseph Gierek Fine Art, 1512 E. 15th St., has the Oklahoma artist's exhibition, Heartland Homage, on display through June 4. His work with paint, needles and a blank pallet creates scenes that seem to rise off the canvas and pull onlookers into the tranquility of the scene. Visit gierek.com for more information.
Street Lights. Take a gander at the bustling art tents, listen to local tunes as they resound through downtown, groove with the street dancers and watch the kids frolic in sheets of bubbles. Mayfest has
finally arrived and the streets of downtown will be aglow with life May 19-22. Take in all the wonder with a cold drink and delicious fair food in the heart of downtown. Visit
