  • The lights of the McSwain Theatre marquee illuminate the corner of Main and Townsend in Ada, Oklahoma, as they have since 1920. Today, the venue offers movies, live music, stage plays.

  • Dusk gives way to night behind the skyline of Ada, Oklahoma--as seen from the McSwain Theatre second floor. On the evening of Oct. 21, this same scene will take on a festive fall facade as the Jae L. and Crossover band present their Halloween special.

ADA, Okla. – Vocalists from Oklahoma and Texas will join the Jae L. and the Crossover band for this year’s Halloween special 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 21, on the historic McSwain Theatre stage, 130 W. Main Street.

The band will be dressed in their costumes and invite attendees to do the same.

Returning special guests include: Clancy Davis, Haley Miller and Chandler Elliott, of Ada; Kaitlyn Anne, of Atoka; and the group OK 3, from Edmond.

The McSwain Theatre will also be welcoming Jack Phillips, of Sulphur Bluff, Texas, to the stage for the first time.

Phillips is a 12-year-old vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who plays the fiddle, mandolin, and guitar. He is known for his western swing and traditional country tunes and recently released his first self-titled CD.
