Discoveryland Closed Permanently In Sand Springs

Say so-long to the "Surrey With The Fringe On Top".

Discoveryland in Sand Springs is calling it quits.

The outdoor theater has been open for almost 40 years, with performances of "Oklahoma" and "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers".

Summer shows at Discoveryland, this year and last year, were all canceled.

And now we've learned the Jeffers family, that runs the amphitheater, has declared the place "permanently closed".

The Chamber of Commerce in Sand Springs says, it costs the community money from tourism.

President, Mary Eubanks told Channel 8, "Well, it means a loss of dollars for one thing. We get calls, 'are we going to do Discoveryland this year?'. I knew it was going to happen. I was just waiting for the formal announcement."

Eubanks says the billboard for Discoveryland was burned to the ground a few weeks ago.

Discoveryland started performing "Oklahoma" in 1976.
