The Theater at Founders Hall was transformed into the Oklahoma territory of the early 1900s as the MBS Middle School Musical Theatre class presented Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic “Oklahoma!” on Thursday, May 26.
The MBS Middle School Musical Theatre class gives students the opportunity to learn about the rich history of American musical theater while pursuing specialized performance training in acting, singing, and dancing. Producing an hour-long musical at the end of the semester helps the students cultivate these skills.
A big, sprawling musical, “Oklahoma!” center on the hearty pioneers of the Oklahoma territory as they struggle to create a brand new state. The show featured familiar songs such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” “People Will Say We’re in Love,” and of course, the title number.
