The dick you’ve been waiting for: "Moby Dick"

Facing the closure of their rough and tumble school due to unpaid utility bills, the young juvenile delinquents of St. Godley's School for Girls write and stage a spectacular musical production of Herman Melville's great novel, Moby Dick.  

With unstoppable Headmistress Dorothy Hyman in charge (doubling as Ahab), all the young women play the rest of the parts and use anything they can find from the school as props. You'll see how this hilarious musical comedy became a cult favorite during its run in London's West End.

Written by Robert Longden and Hereward Kaye, this new musical is presented by Oklahoma City Theatre Company (OKCTC). Directed by Megan Montgomery.

The OKCTC performances of Moby Dick will be Feb. 8-18 at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, (201 N. Walker) in the Freede Little Theatre.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday showtimes are 8 p.m. There is one Sunday performance on February 18 at 2 p.m. The show runs approximately two hours with an intermission.

For tickets, call (405) 297-2264.
