If you've ever wondered what Gov. Mary Fallin might look like doing the popular dance “Gangnam Style,” here's your chance.

Local actors and actresses from the Oklahoma City metro will perform in this year's OKC Gridiron Show, portraying many of Oklahoma's state leaders.

The play, opening Wednesday, is full of political satire in the form of song, poking fun at Oklahoma's local, state and national lawmakers and newsmakers.

The OKC Gridiron Show has been performed every year since 1928, except for a few years during World War II. Proceeds from the show provide money for a series of scholarships awarded each year to journalism students who attend Oklahoma colleges or universities.

The show is 7:30 p.m.
