The Oklahoma Shakespearean Festival is proud to announce the return engagement of the hit show Four Guys Named Al on August 24 and 25 and September 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Southeastern Oklahoma State University New Theatre Building.
This quartet cabaret spotlights the local talents of Aaron Adair, Jeremy Blackwood, Corey King and Dell McLain, as they sing select songs from the Great American Songbook, such as “Fly Me to the Moon”, “Young at Heart,” “I’ll Be Seeing You” and “New York, New York.”
Written by McLain, the story follows a television studio security guard, two janitors and a junior producer who find themselves trapped during a freak Labor Day snowstorm. In order to save the Great American Labor Day Telethon, they’ll have to perform the last hour and ten minutes live on their own. McLain described it as “fast paced and funny,” and the show’s original run during the Oklahoma Shakespearean Festival’s main stage season garnered widespread media and audience praise. Reviewer Lynette George called the show “a winning combination.”
“I wanted to write a show I knew my mom would love,” said McLain. “You’ll also get the chance to hear these four veteran performers singing in tight harmony on such songs as ‘Danny Boy’ and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ plus a show‐stopping male version of ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.’”
Four Guys Named Al returns to the stage August 24 and 25 and September 14 and 15. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 580-745-2696 or by going online to www.oklahomashakes.com.
