If anyone can upstage the 145-member Canterbury Choral Society, that person is surely Ron Raines, a Broadway musical veteran who prefers sharing the spotlight to stealing it. No wonder the society invited him to headline its first show of the 2012-13 season, Broadway to Bricktown at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Raines is an Oklahoma City University graduate who went on to attend the premiere school for arts, Juilliard. He was nominated for an Emmy Award three times for his role as Alan Spaulding on the soap opera Guiding Light, but it was his long-running musical theater career and recent run in Follies, which earned him a 2012 Tony Award nomination. Pick a famous musical, and Raines has played a lead role in it. That’s why Broadway to Bricktown is certain to be a real treat for theater lovers. Tickets are $40-$65, available at www.canterburyokc.com.
