Galaxy of Stars to present ‘Flipside: The Patti Page Story’

TAHLEQUAH — The final show of the 2013-14 Galaxy of the Stars Series, presented by the Sequoyah Institute at Northeastern State University, is a show set in 1965 that takes place in the KTUL radio station in Tulsa.

“Flipside: The Patti Page Story” will be performed at the NSU Center for the Performing Arts on Thursday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m.

The show moves back and forth in time, as well as in and out of the memories of Clara Ann Fowler, the young Oklahoma girl who was groomed into “The Singing Rage - Miss Patti Page.”

The country-politan, Page was considered one of the first crossover artists who performed country, jazz, pop and even a little R&B. She was an Okie who did everything;and  this show offers a little something for everyone.

This musical’s debut was in April 2011 at the University of Central Oklahoma and has since gone on to win 18 awards at the Kennedy Center National Theatre Festival that same year.

“Flipside,” features a cast of six with a band, and highlights 28 of Page’s 111 hits including “Tennessee Waltz,” “How Much is that Doggie in the Window,” “Allegheny Moon,” “Mocking Bird Hill” and “Old Cape Cod.”

In addition to the evening show, there is the opportunity to “Go Beyond the Stage” for a lecture by Oklahoma native Greg White, the writer and director of “Flipside.”

The lecture will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the NSU Jazz Lab Thursday, March 13.

For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Sequoyah Institute at (918) 458.2075 or visit nsuok.edu/si.

The Galaxy of Stars performing arts series is made possible through funding from the NSU College of Liberal Arts and a grant from the Oklahoma Arts Council.
