Singers, dancers and actors bring a lively production of ‘Oklahoma’ to the stage
Drama Dock’s summer musical, “Oklahoma,” will open at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 8, at Vashon High School, and continue with additional performances scheduled through July 18.
More than 75 Islanders are involved in the production and have been preparing for the show for the past several months.
“Oklahoma,” by Rodgers and Hammerstein, is one of the most celebrated shows in the American musical theater canon. Vashon’s production is directed by Phil Dunn, who stepped in to take the place of Drama Dock director Elizabeth Anthony, who had to step down from the show in early June due to health problems.
Teenage thespians David Katz and Zoey Rice will play the leading roles of Curly and Laurey, singing such well-known songs as “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” and “People Will Say We’re in Love.”
Performance times are 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 10, and 4 p.m. on Sunday, July 18. Ticket prices for Thursday evening performances are $10 and $5; tickets to all other performances are $15 and $10. Buy tickets at Books by the Way, Vashon Bookshop or at www.brownpapertickets.com. Group rates are also available; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
