Take Me To CHVRCH

Ugh, Mondays, right? The weekend’s over and there’s work and the kids are in school and the pork chops in the fridge are starting to look a little suspect, but maybe if they’re cooked tonight… Break out of the same old mold with a very unusual Monday night show at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa featuring world-renowned electronic music trio CHVRCHES with indie artist Donna Missal. This one promises to be a banger, especially compared to most Monday nights. November 15. Tickets, $40-$60. cainsballroom.com

Ghost World

Get into the spirit with some spirits at Harn Homestead in Oklahoma City as they host Lyric Theatre’s A Christmas Carol. This traditional tale of a rich miser being visited by a series of ghosts is told in a non-traditional way for plays, as guests will walk from scene to scene outdoors for the 75-minute show’s run. Seems mean to Tiny Tim, but we understand it all turns out pretty well for him in the end. November 17-December 23. Tickets, $45-$70. lyrictheatreokc.com

(Victorian) Dancing in the Streets

If there wasn’t enough Dickens for folks at the Lyric Theatre shows, Claremore has you covered with Dickens on the Boulevard!, which transforms the downtown area into a Victorian wonderland. Visitors can watch live entertainment on stage, get pictures with Santa, and take part in a Victorian street dance that would have the Ghost of Christmas Future shaking his bones. Living history window displays and plenty of holiday shopping will keep Downtown Claremore merry and bright. November 18-19. Admission, Free. downtownclaremore.org

Cha-Ching!

When people who love to make music gather with other people who love to make music, the weirdest thing happens: they make some great music. Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, and Jerry Lee Lewis came together for an impromptu jam session nicknamed “The Million Dollar Quartet,” which was made into a musical. Now a sequel of sorts is coming to Stillwater’s McKnight Center for the Performing Arts with Million Dollar Quartet Christmas, for a fun adventure with an unforgettable soundtrack. November 19-20. Tickets, $25-$120. mcknightcenter.org

REWIND Rewound

A person cannot, unless the laws of time and space have been altered recently, be in two places at once. So there’s going to be some stuff that we miss. Usually, you just have to forgive yourself and move on, but Perpetual Motion Dance and Factory Obscura are making sure those who missed REWIND earlier this year have a chance to bend a little space and time for the Perpetual Motion Fundraiser. Guests can see a special encore performance of the REWIND finale with three additional works while enjoying an open bar, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction to raise money for the dance crew’s twentieth season. Novermber 20. Tickets, $35-$50. tickets.factoryobscura.com
