Beetlejuice, the Musical

He earned his stripes on Broadway ... now the ghost-with-the-most is coming to Tulsa. It’s showtime! Based on Tim Burton’s dearly beloved film, this hilarious musical tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose whole life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and a demon with a thing for stripes. With an irreverent book, an astonishing set, and a score that’s out of this Netherworld, Beetlejuice is “SCREAMINGLY GOOD FUN!” (Variety). And under its uproarious surface (six feet under, to be exact), it’s a remarkably touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O! Contains strong language, mature references, and a lot of crazy, inappropriate stuff you would expect from a deranged demon.  Recommended for 13+. To accommodate deaf and hard of hearing patrons, Celebrity Attractions offers live American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation for the Friday, 11/24 evening and Saturday, 11/25 evening performances of Beetlejuice. To get the best seating to access the interpreters, please contact the ticket office.
