One of the best things about the holiday season is having a reason to get all fancied up for the seemingly endless list of parties and events going on from before Thanksgiving until after New Year’s Eve.
When we say, “Go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra,” it’s not a fancy way of telling you to take a hike across Siberia. No, literally, go see Trans-Siberian Orchestra as they perform their acclaimed rock opera The Lost Christmas Eve at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday at Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave. Tickets are $41.50-$71.50. Call 602-8700 or visit chesapeakearena.com.
If you’re looking for generic sketch-comedy, do not go see Take 9. If you’re looking for sketch-comedy unlike anything else, go see Take 9’s New Year’s Eve Bash, an interactive variety production featuring live music, giveaways and lots of laughs. The fast- paced show starts at 9 p.m. Tuesday at Red Room Event Center, 114 W. Main St. in Norman. Tickets are $35 or $65 for couples. Visit take9-nye.ezevent.com.
