Upcoming Events Will Keep OCU Entertained
The FACES Talent Showcase will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Petree Auditorium in the Wanda L. Bass School of Music. Oklahoma City University students will perform acts to the titles of “Every Day I Love You,” “My Heart Will Go On,” “Hallelujah,” “Salsa Cubana,” and “Three Preludes.” There will also be traditional dances from India, China and Vietnam. Special performers include OCU Rhythm, OCU Steel Drum Band and the Generation Blessed Gospel Choir.
The flyover film festival begins at 8 p.m. in the Kerr McGee Auditorium in the Meinders School of Business. The free film festival series will feature short television pilots. It is open to anyone who has ever thought about how much fun it would be to make a television show. At the first event 10 pilots will be screened, after which the audience will vote for a favorite. The top five shows will be asked to return the next month with a second episode, which will then compete against five new pilots. The contest thus continues indefinitely. Call Brent Cockerham at (817) 269-2574 for more information.
The theater school and religion school co-production of “As It Is In Heaven” will be at 8 p.m. Saturday in the Bishop W. Angie Smith Chapel. The play is about a Shaker community of the 1830s featuring hymns and a group of women who put their "Hands to Work" and "Hearts to God."
Also at 8 p.m. Saturday, the Wanda L. Bass School of Music will present “Don Giovanni,” a favorite retelling of the Don Juan legend blending dramatic, comedic and supernatural elements, with luscious melodies spilling from the mouths of the main characters. The performance will be in the Kirkpatrick Auditorium. Call Clint Moore at ext. 5701 for more information.
