TULSA, OK -- A project to teach teens how to avoid poor choices is in Tulsa this month.

The 99 is a walk-through reality theater focusing on the leading causes of death to U.S. teenagers -- auto-related accidents, domestic violence or homicide, suicide and other choices or diseases.

The production is housed in a 20,000-square-foot air structure and features 13 rooms portraying real-life situations where guests will experience a 45-minute guided tour.

The 99 is based on reality, not fear and scare tactics, organizers say. About 20,000 people are expected to attend the walk-through theater.

The event continues May 15-17 in the parking lot of 7700 South Lewis Avenue, north of Wal-Mart. Doors are open 7-11 p.m. Tickets cost $8 at the door.
