Following their successful production of Sweeney Todd in March, West Bridgford Operatic Society’s (WBOS) next theatre production, which runs from 28th February to 4th March 2017, will be the much-loved Roger and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!.
The show, based on Green Grow the Lilacs by Lynn Rigg, is set in the Western Indian territory at the turn of the 20th Century.
The rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop for a love story between Curly, a handsome cowboy and Laurey, a beautiful farm girl.
As always, the road to love is anything but smooth. The show features many of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s best-loved songs, including Oh What a Beautiful Morning, The Surrey with the Fringe on Top and People Will Say We’re in Love!
The show will be directed by long-serving member Julie Fowler of West Bridgford, and musically directed by Timothy Selman who will be making his WBOS debut.
The society is keen to welcome new members for this fully-staged production and invites any experienced singers or enthusiastic newcomers to come along to the auditions on Wednesday 7th September, 7:30pm.
There are opportunities for men and women of all ages, aged 16+, to be in the chorus or principal roles.
Membership and audition details are on the society’s website www.westbridgfordoperticsociety.co.uk or available via Lee Horne, secretary, on 07900 908829.
