Civic Center Music Hall and The Lion King in Oklahoma City
Contact: 405-297-2584 http://www.okcciviccenter.org/
Our beautiful Civic Center Music Hall has gone through many transitions since its inception as a WPA project in 1936. The outside of the building exemplifies the austere architecture of those government funded projects, while the interior is a work of modern design and technology. Dino Lalli takes you on a fascinating tour of this Oklahoma treasure as they prepare to present "The Lion King" on their stage.

Miss Blues performing in Oklahoma City

Lots of people who never really had the blues, sing the blues... and a lot of them make a pretty good living at it. But if you really want to sing the blues with passion... you have to have lived them... and Dorothy Ellis has really earned the title of Miss Blues.
