Opens Thursday, July 24

Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park continues its magical Mediterranean tour of Shakespeare’s classic plays with Pericles, opening Thursday, July 24, at 8 p.m. at Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave., Oklahoma City. Although Shakespeare’s authorship over the entirety of the play is questionable, many scholars believe that he penned at least half of the play, undoubtedly the most interesting half recounting the journey of the Greek prince of Tyre on the run from a riddle and almost certain death. Pericles is the third play of Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park’s 2014 season. The show ends Sunday, July 27. Tickets are $10-$15. For more, visit www.oklahomashakespeare.org.
