Carol it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you’re like us, when you read A Christmas Carol, you do it in your best Charles Dickens voice (or at least a British accent). Thankfully, Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park presents Dickens himself (played by Wil Rogers) to tell his story as he would have when he toured America in 1868. The reading starts at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday at the Overholser Mansion, 405 NW 15th St. Tickets are $35. Call 235-3700 or visit oklahomashakespeare.org.

Fastball it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

If you had a radio at any point in the late ’90s, “Fastball” isn’t just a baseball term to you. You probably know the Austinbased alt-rock band from ditties like “The Way,” which has been stuck in our heads since 1998. See them 8 p.m. Friday at Bricktown Music Hall, 103 Flaming Lips Alley. Chris Sullivan and Junebug Spade will also perform. Tickets are $20. Call 600-6092 or visit bricktownmusichall.com.

Park it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Some plays shy away from hard-hitting issues. Clybourne Park is not one of those plays. The R-rated comedic production tackles topics like race and gentrification, and it won a bunch of awards as a result (a Tony and a Pulitzer, no less). See the University Theatre production 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5 in the Weitzenhoffer Theatre, 563 Elm Ave. in Norman. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students. Call 325- 4101 or visit ou.edu/finearts.

Flute it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Let’s be honest here; the flute is one sexy instrument. No one knows this better than Emily Butterfield, associate professor of flute at the University of Central Oklahoma School of Music, and few play the woodwind better. See Butterfield perform in concert 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the UCO Jazz Lab, 100 E. Fifth St. in Edmond. Tickets are $10. Call 974-5004 or visit uco.edu/cfad/events.
