Disturb it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

Some horror tales are forgotten (Sharknado, anyone?), while others endure. Considering Euripides died some 2400 years ago, his disturbing tragedy Medea qualifies as the latter. The OKC Theatre Company will resurrect the ancient production at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker Ave. Tickets are $10. Call 297-2584 or visit okctheatrecompany.org.
