HLGU Announces Spring Musical – Oklahoma!

The Hannibal-LaGrange University Theatre Department will be presenting three performances of the musical classic Oklahoma!, April 12-14, at 7 pm in the Parker Theatre of the Roland Fine Arts Center.

Come celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic that helped launch the golden age of Broadway musicals! In the Oklahoma territory at the turn of the century, two cowboys, Curly and Will, vie for the affections of their sweethearts, Laurey and Ado Annie, against the advances of a surly ranch hand and an itinerant peddler.

Full of energetic music, delightful humor, and heart, Oklahoma! enters its seventy-fifth year with just as much verve and vigor as when it first opened in 1943.

Community members are invited to audition for a limited number of roles. Acting auditions will be held Monday evening, January 15, and vocal auditions will be held Tuesday evening, January 16.

For more information, or to sign up for an audition time, contact Sabrina Brookshire, assistant professor of theatre, via email at sabrina.brookshire@hlg.edu.
