LIVE on the Plaza, second Fridays
NW 16th between Classen and Penn
The Plaza District’s LIVE on the Plaza Second Friday Artwalk blooms a packed schedule and fine introduction to spring. Eggs a-LIVE will start at 7 PM, allowing kids and adults yearning to act like kids- a chance to hunt for eggs full of unique Plaza District prizes. Some prizes include: a free kids craft kit, original artwork from DNA Galleries, handmade items from Collected Thread, gift certificates, kids dance lessons, candy, toys and more! Please find the Plaza District info table across from Lyric Theatre to start the hunt!
At 7:30, head over to PhotoArt Studios for a free film screening of deadCENTER films, and at 8 PM be sure not to miss the Balcum Rancum Live Pupptery at Bad Grannies Bazaar. Last month, Balcum Rancum told the story of “The Largest Mermaid”, so tune in this month to see the latest story!
Be sure to stop by DNA Galleries where Josh Heilaman has returned to OKC to show his latest work. Josh’s work in a variety of media, create environments heavy with seas, forests, and cities — all populated by creatures of whimsy and all expressing the multitude of emotions we as humans face today. From contentment to struggle, adornment to loneliness, Josh’s work gives us a glimpse into ourselves through his use of color and whimsical creatures. DNA Galleries has also worked with Josh to produce the first in a series of local artist limited edition T’s and will be releasing these to the public during the exhibit. Also beats by the favorite DJ Garistotle will be playing outside!
Next door, check out the clothing and accessories by designer Birdie, plus more handmade accessories, vintage clothes and art at Collected Thread! Then, head over to Performance Dancewear for free ballroom dance lessons. Paula and Co Realtors will be throwing a Plaza District ho-down with great music, food and fun! Visual Artist and Indie Craft artist will be displaying works in booths outdoors as well!
Also, Lyric at the Plaza will be showing “Woody Sez” at 8 PM. Lyric’s production of Woody Sez is the American premiere of a musical that met with rave reviews and delighted crowds across Europe! This gem of a show weaves the songs of Woody Guthrie together with excerpts and anecdotes from his writing to transport the audience through his fascinating, beautiful, and sometimes tragic life. Performed by a talented group of four versatile actor/musicians who play 15 instruments ranging from guitar and fiddle to jaw harp and dulcimer, the show brings to life the many people who are the fabric of Woody Guthrie’s amazing story. The cast’s infectious enjoyment, Woody’s incredible journey, and a stirring mix of moving ballads and energetic foot-stompers, including “This Land Is Your Land”, “Oklahoma Hills” and “This Train Is Bound For Glory”, all create a truly personal portrait of an Oklahoma legend and one of the world’s immortal troubadours.
