Three Dog Night and More Laughing
Three Dog Night
In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night.
The legendary rock band is coming to the Stride Bank Center for a 7 pm concert on Friday.
Three Dog Night hits weave through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures -- songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World,” “Black and White,” “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize Three Dog Night's continuing popularity.
Tickets range from $39 to $89 and are available at StrideBankCenter.com, 580.616.7380 or the Stride Bank Center administration office.
When the biggest highlight in your life for the past 30 years has been your weekly bridge night out with the "girls," what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies?
The results of that choice is the theme for Gaslight Theatre's presentation of "Exit Laughing". The show ends with performances Friday and Saturday night.
If you're Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham, you do the most daring thing you've ever done. You "borrow" the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game, and the wildest, most exciting night of your lives involves a police raid, a stripper and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you're truly living.
Showtimes are 7:30 pm Friday & Saturday. Tickets for this comedy are $15 for adults, $12 for military and $8 for students.
The Orphan Trains
Hundreds of thousands of children were abandoned following the influx of immigrants to America beginning in the 1830s. The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center opened a new temporary exhibit last week telling the story of these children being loaded onto trains during the Industrial Revolution and shipped to Oklahoma and other parts of the West.
All Aboard: Examining the Orphan Trains tells the good and the bad of the controversial attempts to relocate orphan children from overpopulated cities on the east coast to foster homes in the rural American west, including Oklahoma.
This special exhibit will run through June 4 and is open during regular museum hours of 10 am-5 pm Tuesday-Saturday. Admission is the regular museum price.
