‘Oklahoma, Jr.’ auditions coming soon

Auditions for “Oklahoma Jr.” will be held March 19-20 for actors and actresses ages 12 years and older! The first collaboration of famed partners Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, “Oklahoma!” set the American musical theatre standard.

Set in Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the 20th Century, the spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop for the love story between Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a beautiful farm girl.

The road to true love is anything but smooth, but there is no doubt that these two romantics will succeed in making a life together.

As the road to romance and the road to statehood converge, Curly and Laurey are poised to spend their new life together in a brand new state: O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A – OKLAHOMA!

Junior musicals are condensed, author-approved versions of classic musicals, Disney favorites and modern works, custom-tailored to the needs of young people and schools.

No need to prepare a song or speech as everyone will sing, dance and read together.

Auditions for “Oklahoma Jr.” will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 19, and from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 20 at the Pearl Theater, 7160 Ash Street, Bonners Ferry.
