Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre To Hold Auditions for Oklahoma!

March 26, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FROM: Barbara W. Simpson
Cultural Arts and Special Events
334-595-0851

Prattville’s Way Off Broadway Theatre announces auditions for it production of Oklahoma!, with music by Richard Rodgers and Book and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein, II, based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs, with original dances by Agnes de Mille. Oklahoma! is presented by special arrangement with R & H Theatricals. The production will run from July 25 through August 11 and is directed by Sam Wallace.

Auditions will be held on Saturday, April 27, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and on Monday and Tuesday, April 29 and 30, from 7-9:00 p.m. at the Prattville Cultural Arts Center at 203 West 4 th Street in Prattville 36067.

The production will include 23 performers: men and women ranging in age from 14 to 74. Actors are asked to prepare a one minute monologue and 16 bars of a song with sheet music. An accompanist will be provided. You may be asked to read from a script.

Rodgers and 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! This production is suitable for all ages.

For more information about auditions, please contact the Cultural Arts and Special Events Office at 334-595-0854 or visit wobt.prattvilleal.gov.
