We’re officially at the beginning of the holidays movie watching bonanza. The season starts out light, with the studios clearing out the last of their funny fare hitting local cinemas as they gradually work toward the heavy dramas of the Oscar-worthy Christmas day openers (it is soon to be award season after all).
Aberdeen High School’s production of “Oklahoma!” opens Friday at the AHS Auditorium, and runs through Sunday. Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday.
Sunday marks the first Grays Harbor Symphony concert of the Bishop Center season. This event is called “Hidden Treasures” and will showcase lesser known works like Beethoven’s “12 German Dances”, Grainger’s “Molly on the Shore”, and Vaughan Williams’ “Rhosymedre.” In addition, a live soundtrack will accompany Hilary Audus’ animated short film “The Bear.” The film won a Peabody Award in 1998 and its soundtrack was composed by Howard Blake.
A presentation this weekend, led by the Polson Museum and 7th Street Theatre, aims to showcase Hoquiam life in the 1890s and continue the celebration of the city’s 125th anniversary.

If it’s true that we’re all a little bit Irish, then next week’s local music will help you confirm that. Galway Bay Pub in Ocean Shores kicks off their Twelfth Annual Irish Music Festival on Wednesday in both Ocean Shores and Hoquiam.
