OneSix8: How to Fill Your Week (Feb 14, 2013)

It’s been a fairly cold week here in Oklahoma. With the snow on Tuesday and wintery winds all week, it’s easy to feel trapped inside your house trying to keep warm. This week on OneSix8, I’m bringing you four events that will help combat cabin fever and allow you to escape on an adventure.

A Killer Reunion comes to The Hall at the Railhouse in Norman February 14th through the 16th. This murder mystery dinner takes guests back to a high school reunion where things go awry due to the guidance counselor’s poor advice so many years ago. If you’re hoping for a more laid-back evening, this may not be for you because guests are asked to assist in the quest for the guilty class member. The Sooner Theatre presents this interactive dinner and a show beginning at 6:30 p.m. each evening.

If searching for a convict isn’t how you imagined spending your weekend, then don’t worry. The Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City presents 100 Years of Broadway Thursday through Sunday. This combination of Broadway’s most popular scores features five singers from musicals such as The Phantom of the Opera, Les Mis, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Jekyll and Hyde. Accompanying the acting crew is a live New York band including this musical’s writer Neil Berg on piano.

If you would rather spend your time in The Windy City than The Big Apple, there’s an opportunity for you, too, this weekend. OU’s Fine Arts department takes the audience back to 1930’s Chicago in the university’s rendition of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui by Bertolt Brecht. This edgy satire revolves around the rise of Nazism and a fictional mobster’s struggle with corruption, greed, and lust. Matinees begin at 3:00 p.m. and evening performances start at 8:00.

Lastly, War Memorial Park and Museum in Muskogee offers a chance for visitors to step back into time on the U.S.S. Batfish on February 15th and 16th. The Batfish Living History Association provides historical reenactments and guided tours of the World War II submarine that participated in seven war patrols, claiming a total of 15 ships. Though that in itself is impressive, the Batfish is most famous for sinking three Imperial Japanese Navy submarines within a 76-hour period.
