Okoboji Summer Theatre presents A Musical Gala at PLAC March 18 

The Okoboji Summer Theatre will present "A Musical Gala" at the Pearson Lakes Art Center on Saturday evening.

PLAC Executive Director Bob Kirschbaum says, a special video will be shown prior to the event.  "It's the history, the early history, of the Okoboji Summer Theatre.  It's 22 minutes long, so we're going to play that in the theatre 22 minutes before we start the show.  And then we'll also have a TV playing out in the lobby during intermission and before the show, and then, that night we'll announce where you can go check it out and watch it later on for yourself."

He adds that the program will include some special guests.  "Some of those favorite songs from the Big Band Era, The Broadway Musicals they've put on and some classical jazz, and it'll feature fan favorites Rob Doyen , Tom Andes & Company, several of the talented Stephens College students are coming up with Ruth Ann (Burke), and some local favorites, Greg Forney and Tim Schmacher will be joining in as well."

The event will get underway at 7:30 Saturday evening, with the screening of the historical OST video to start just past 7 o'clock.
