There’s still time to see  Rodgers and Hammerstein’s  Cklahoma! presented by the Drama Department of North Lincoln High School. Performances will be held tonight, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday afternoon, March 10 at 2 p.m. in the school auditorium.  The production is directed by North Lincoln Drama teacher Joanna Underwood with orchestra conducted by Neil Underwood who is the Band Director at North Lincoln.

Based on Lynn Riggs’ 1931 play “Green Grow The Lilacs” the musical is set in the Oklahoma Territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906.  It tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams. A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancée Ado Annie.

The team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein are also known for the musicals – Carousel, State Fair, South Pacific, The King and I, Cinderella, Flower Drum Song and The Sound of Music.  Five of which were outstanding successes (Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music).

North Lincoln’s production of Oklahoma!  Features senior Becca DeGregory as Aunt Eller, senior Chris Belk as Curly, junior Morgan Spence as Laurey, junior Joey Nuhfer as Will and junior Gracie Lowman as Ado Annie.

North Lincoln’s Drama Department has been nominated for a Blumey Award for the production of Oklahoma and Lincolnton High School was nominated for their production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The Blumey Awards recognize excellence in high school theater.

According to Mrs. Underwood this is the second year that the Blumey Awards will be held.  The awards will be held in the Belk Theater at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte on May 19 at 7 p.m.  Tickets for the event can be purchased by contacting the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center  at (704) 732-1000.
