The Drama Club put on a production of famous musical, “Oklahoma!” this past weekend.
The show, set in the Midwest territory at the turn of the century, concerns two rivalries – one between a cowboy called Curley and a hired hand named Jud, both in love with Laurey; and the second involving Ado Annie, Will and Ali Hakim, a trio that provided plenty of laughs.
The drama club held three shows for the community and one dress rehearsal for elementary students, who had a chance to see what they could be a part of at the middle school.
The show was directed by teacher Matt DeLuca, choreographed by Mrs. Barbara Peters and musically directed by Don Carreras.
“Oklahoma!” was the first show written by the team of Rodgers and Hammerstein and the first musical to have its entire score recorded. It was also the longest running musical during its day, holding the distinction for 15 years.
