This month, La Colina Junior High School students present Oklahoma, the time honored classic full of familiar tunes like “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning,” “Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” and ending, of course, with the rousing title piece, “Oklahoma.” John Lindsey, eighth grader at La Colina, plays the quintessentially charming cowboy Curly, who pursues the lovely soprano Laurey (Hannah Sugano) against the jealous and dark spirited farm hand, Jud (Nick Wyman). In the middle of the courtship is Aunt Eller, (perfectly suited to Emma Schott) who isn’t afraid to tote a pistol or bake a pie while managing the farm, chaperoning young ladies, and taming a flirtatious traveling salesmen. Ali Hakem (Sam Haj), in all his Persian persuasion, has captured the attention of the fickle Ado Annie (Penny O’Mahoney) who is also enamored of her promised beau, Will (played by Jack Nelson). Tickets for this production can be purchased through the front office at La Colina Junior High school, or at the door during the run of the show March 13, 14, 15 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for children.
