Now Auditioning for Oklahoma! with Imagination Players

August 15, 2012  |  Posted by: Kathy Tyner

We are so pleased to be preparing for auditions and rehearsals for our fall show, “Oklahoma!”.  From this show comes some of the most memorable music by Rodgers, Richard | Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Based on the play GREEN GROW THE LILACS by Lynn Riggs | Original Dances by Agnes de Mille. Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!

Rehearsals begin Saturday, September 8, 10 a.m. – 3 pm and continue 8 consecutive Saturdays through October 27.  Tech week will begin Monday, October 29, and the show will open Thursday, November 1 and run through Sunday, November 4.

Auditions will be Friday, September 7, 5-8 pm at the KD Studio Theatre, 2600 Stemmons, Suite 180. (Must enroll to audition.)
