Bethany Christian thespians to perform ‘Oklahoma!’


THE GOSHEN NEWS

— GOSHEN — Bethany Christian High School thespians are set to stage a musical production of “Oklahoma!”

Performances are set for Thursday through Sunday.

Set in Oklahoma territory in 1906, this musical depicts the quest for identity of the soon-to-be state, as the farmers and cowboys each seek to stake their claim. At the heart of the story is the rocky romance between Laurey, a farm girl, and Curly, a cowboy. The stage version of this landmark musical includes plenty of singing, dancing, and humor, as well as often-overlooked depth, according to Bethany staff.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for students. To ensure a seat, reserve tickets in the school office or call 574-534-2567.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. and the Sunday performance at 3 p.m.
