A nice gathering of folks and fun Friday evening at Wellington High School. It was opening night for the Rodgers and Hammerstein production - "OKLAHOMA" and the Crusaders of the Stage were at their best, their very, very best!
Under the direction of Bob and Michelle Brown and choral direction of Jessica Coldwell, the cast of nearly 30, captured the undivided attention of all in attendance, with great performance, after great performance, the best production at a high school play I've probably ever seen. Cameron Carter can sing, Michaela Adkins can sing, Chloe Easterly can sing, Joel Brown can sing, too! The group numbers, voluminous and bold, you felt like you were at a Broadway Production, better yet, you felt like you were in Claremore, Oklahoma 1906, it was just that good!
If you were not there, your opportunities are not exhausted. The curtain goes up again Saturday evening at 7PM (doors open at 6:30PM) and also on Sunday afternoon at 2:00PM (doors open at 1:30PM). Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, children 5 and under FREE. You will be impressed and proud of the students at WHS, the direction they receive, and the product they produce. Top notch, professional and memorable. The costumes and stage construction - awesome and real. You won't forget the quality of this production folks and the enjoyment you will experience. Rodgers and Hammerstein's OKLAHOMA musical "is" the place to be this weekend, so glad I took advantage, you will be too!
