|Weatherford offers an abundance of cultural events. The Weatherford Arts
Council, a dedicated group of volunteers, promotes the arts through locally produced and
imported theatrical troupes, gala "Celebrate the Arts" nights, and an arts
academy offered each summer for budding young artists.
Besides the Southwestern Oklahoma State Universitys Panorama Series, the University Language Arts Department offers a varied feast of drama, musicals, and comedies at the Replogle Fine Arts Center on campus. The university marching and jazz bands display their talents during the school year with both formal and outdoor concerts and get acquainted events for the entire community.
The Weatherford Schools make their contribution to the citys cultural scene by performing plays and musicals, showing students art, and performing choir concerts throughout the school year.
Area ballet companies include Weatherford as their dancers tour throughout the state.
Each fall, Weatherford and surrounding communities come alive with ever-growing art shows that bring entertainment, food, arts, and crafts from all around the region to our area.
In Clinton, just 15 miles to the west, Southwest Playhouse has been wowing audiences for more than 30 years with locally produced plays and musicals. Five unique theatrical shows, staged with the aid of a good number of Weatherford actors, directors, and stagehands, are produced each year. The playhouse is a story all by itself. A converted cattle-auction facility built in 1941, the 200-seat theater is a pleasant weekend diversion fall, winter or spring.
