The Dunham School presented Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma” on March 28-29 on campus.
Set in Oklahoma territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906, the musical tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain, played by Conner Quinn, and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams, played by Sophie Tranchina.
A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker, played by Gray Fagan, and his flirtatious fiancée, Ado Annie, played by Mollie Thompson.
Rounding out the cast of 53 student actors, singers and dancers was Curly’s horse, Dun, played by Casanova, of Sommerview Farms.
The two-act musical was directed and choreographed by Dunham fine arts faculty members Christine Dubuc, Carrie Stephens, Charity Givens and Lisa Hooks Murray.
The production was held in the Brown Holt Chapel Arts Building on the Dunham campus and set single-night attendance records for the theater.
