Upper Room Auditions for Oklahoma

In November, Upper Room Theatre is doing a production of the famous Rodgers and Hammerstein musical OKLAHOMA! If you have never seen this show or the movie, shame!  I grew up wanting to be Laurie and in love with Curly.  (Funny enough, my husband later played Dream Curly in New York, so technically, I won in the end.)   It’s a great show, a huge family musical with something for everyone, so don’t miss the chance to audition (even for the experience alone) and make sure to see it in November!  I have had to pleasure of getting to know Kate Santhuff, one of the Founders and Directors, a little this summer, and what a great lady to work for and with.  I’m looking forward to seeing the show already, as I have heard wonderful things about Upper Room.  Details below!

Also, check out a couple clips from past productions, one from the most recent 2002 Broadway revival (ignore the subtitles) to the (televised) London production starring the very talented (and crazy good looking) Hugh Jackman.  Unbelievable.  Enjoy!
