April Must-Dos

It’s a big, busy metro – here’s where to start



 


► Flight Plan

You already know them as extraordinary acrobats – now Cirque du Soleil wants to take you higher. TORUK: The First Flight places less emphasis on flips and handstands, harnessing the company’s stagecraft, production design and physical artistry to focus on weaving a compelling, immersive multimedia experience that places viewers inside the world of fantasy blockbuster Avatar. Chesapeake Arena becomes a portal to Pandora centuries before the Na’vi make contact with humanity, as young warriors begin a desperate quest to save the Tree of Souls and their way of life. Nothing like this has visited OKC before; flights are scheduled daily April 6-10.



► Packing a Wallop

Canterbury Voices is wrapping up its performance season with a bang … or more accurately, a whole series of them, plus booms, crashes, whacks and a whole omnibus of onomatopoetic effects. The More Than Drums concert is a showcase for the signature spectacle of Duo Percussion, a wildly popular Canadian pair who bring out the instrumental potential of everyday objects in high-energy shows like this. Don’t miss the interactive fun!


►Neverland Now

The OKC Ballet has a feeling that you will believe a man can fly. Er, make that a boy who never grew up. Two words: Pixie dust. A season filled with rich storytelling and physical marvels culminates in “Peter Pan,” as choreographer Paul Vasterling, the OKC Philharmonic and a group of dedicated, skilled, thoroughly incredible dancers bring a delight for all ages to the stage … and above it.



► Press Start for Art

Allied Arts is going old-school to find inspiration for its annual fundraiser ARTini Arcade – and while the vibe might be 8-bit, the visuals are better than 2160p in the exclusive art auction … and the food from area favorites and broad selection of custom-created martinis available for tasting aren’t virtual. For that matter, neither is the benefit provided through this event to creative outlets throughout central Oklahoma. So play on, players.


►Monster Mash

The Oklahoma Children’s Theater has a beastly good idea for fantasy-loving kids and their families this month: the 2016 Fairy Tale Ball, named “Happily Ogre After,” is a treat for youngsters but provides a party for all ages. Children, tweens and parents each have their own segmented celebration with dinner, games and entertainment, until one massive dance party brings the house down. Costumes encouraged!


► Uno and Only

Llllllllllllet’s get ready to rumba! Music from Orquestra de Calle to make your blood move a little faster, plenty of dancing – and dance lessons for those in need – a colorful array of festive dress and delicious food and drink, all inspired by the vibrant nightlife of Havana, fill the Norman Arts Council’s single annual fundraiser. Bienvenidos to the fabulous evening’s entertainment known as ONE: Noche Cubana.
