An Ice Production

As a group, we are really struggling to follow instructions. For instance, the 2013 film Frozen included explicit instructions, via song, to "let it go." And yet, a decade later, we have yet to move on. So, let's lean into it, instead! Grab a snowman, a reindeer, a guy who talks to a reindeer, possibly some giant rocks that are alive, and anyone else interested in seeing OKC Broadway Presents: Frozen at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City. Not only will audiences hear the beloved soundtrack from the movie, but there are a dozen new numbers for your children to listen to endlessly, learn, and then demand to hear on the way to and from school in perpetuity. March 22-April 2. Tickets, $36-$133. okcbroadway.com/frozen

Not the Canadian One

Before lips get licked in anticipation of bannock, elk sausage, and smoked salmon, let's get things straight: Taste of Yukon is about the charming Oklahoma city of Yukon, not the Canadian territory. And, while we would all love some elk sausage, it will be much easier to get to Yukon, Oklahoma for a taste of twenty of the city's top restaurants. Sample apps, desserts, entrees, and more. But get those tickets now—they get more expensive at the door. March 23. Tickets, $7-$12. facebook.com

Don't Bet On the Generals

Did you know the Harlem Globetrotters started off as the Chicago GlobeTrotters? It's true! The team briefly became the New York Harlem Globetrotters for a season before everyone said, "We know where Harlem is" and the team became simply the Harlem Globetrotters. Enid's Stride Bank Center is not where Harlem is, but it is where the Globetrotters will be during the 2023 World Tour as they go head-to-head against perennial foes the Washington Generals. March 24. Tickets, $24-$81. stridebankcenter.com

They're All Corner Pieces

Even the most difficult puzzles usually have a cover picture to work from, but paleontologists putting together dinosaur bones aren't so lucky. Dinosaurs were notoriously camera-shy, going so far as to only exist millions of years before the camera was invented in 1816. Learn more about how fossils are prepared at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History in Norman during Paleo Puzzles. This event teaches visitors how fossils are reconstructed through a series of fun activities. Plus, guests can sneak a peek at the fossil preparation lab where new projects are ongoing. Participants will take home a fossil cast as a one-of-a-kind souvenir. March 24. Tickets, $25-$30. samnoblemuseum.ou.edu

Medieval Century Modern

The Renaissance was not terribly fair. Sure, the art scene was popping, but medical care was mostly done by barbers, ladies used lead as makeup, and basically everyone—no matter how rich or poor—had lice. Luckily, the Guthrie Renaissance & Fantasy Festival is a lot nicer than the time period it depicts. Head to Cottonwood Flats for three days of jousting, blacksmithing, dancing, and the obligatory giant fried turkey legs. March 24-26. Tickets, $5-$12. guthrierenfair.com
