DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — The Oklahoma Shakespearean Festival started Friday night in Durant. The 43rd annual event opened with a company Cabaret at Southeastern Visual and Performing Arts Center.

You can also catch the show Saturday evening at 7.

"We have something for everyone in the family," festival spokesperson Taylor Donaldson. "So, no matter what show you want to come to we have a spot for you, we have a seat for you."

The festival runs for the next four weekends, with Hamlet and Beauty and the Beast among other performances.

"There is nostalgia, right? So we have been here for 43 years," said Donaldson. "And we have people who come back every year to see what show we are going to do, because it is a different season every year. This year, our Shakespeare show is 'Hamlet ESP.'"

Tickets are available at the box office until 30 minutes before each performance and in advance for a discounted price on the Oklahoma Shakespearean Festival website.
