Entertain the hours of your weekend with crazy comedy, family theater, live music and one-act operas in the Oklahoma City metro.

CityRep Theater presents the hit comedy “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” at theCivic Center Music Hall through Sunday, November 23.

In the Tony award-winning play by Christopher Durang, step-siblings Vanya and Sonia have never left the confines of their childhood home - a rambling Bucks County farmhouse. A surprise visit from their glamorous movie star sister, Masha, and her twenty-something boy toy, Spike, throws the normally quiet household into utter upheaval.

The cast includes Wendy Welch, Haulston Mann, OU Weitzenhoffer School of Musical Theatre professor Shawn Churchman and Broadway leading lady Stacey Logan. 

Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Sunday, with 1:30 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday.

Singer and guitarist Peter Mulvey

ThePerforming Arts Studio in Norman presents the Winter Wind Concert with Peter Mulvey.

Perhaps best known for a voice that feels like fine old leather, a powerful percussive guitar style, and his warmly wry songwriting, Peter Mulvey has developed a strong national following in the indie folk/rock scene through more than twenty years of touring and sixteen critically acclaimed albums. The Boston Glove says, Mulvey is, “All substance, which is his style.”

The concert starts at 7 p.m. Sunday, November 16 at the Depot.

Oklahoma City University opens its opera season with a twin bill of one-act operas at 8 p.m. Friday, November 14 and Saturday, November 15.

OCU’s award-winning Oklahoma Opera and Music Theater Company starts its 63rd season with presentations of“L’Enfant et les Sortilèges and “Suor Angelica.”

“The evening is a perfect balance of entertainment,” Director Karen Coe Miller said. “L’Enfant’ is full of quirky humor, magical characters, and playful dance. ‘Suor Angelica’ touches the heart with Puccini’s soaring music and emotions.”

Both operas are presented in their original French and Italian dialogue, with English translations projected over the stage.
