Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! Rodgers & Hammerstein's timeless classic remains a firm favourite with audiences and popular songs inlcude: 'Oh What a Beautiful Morning,' 'Farmer and the Cowman, 'The Surrey with a Fringe on Top' and the title song 'Oklahoma!'.
In preparation for ‘Oklahoma!’, SALOS is holding a casting workshop for children aged 6 yrs and over where they will need to demonstrate their singing and dancing ability. From this casting workshop, children will be selected to take part in the forthcoming production of ‘Oklahoma!’. The children will play the youngest members of the community, therefore SALOS will likely be casting a chorus of boys and girls who are no taller than 5’0’’ tall.
The casting workshop will take place at 6.45pm on Tuesday 22nd May 2018 at Lawn Manor Academy, and will last until approximately 8.00pm, although this will be confirmed according to participant numbers. There is no cost to attend the casting, however children who are selected to perform in the show will be required to pay a performing fee of £60.
To confirm a place at the workshop, please download the application form below and email the completed form to: email@example.com or post to the address below by Saturday 12th May 2018.
SALOS are likely to cast 2 groups of children who will perform on alternate performances.
SALOS rehearse on Monday and Tuesday evenings and the children will be required from 6.45pm-8.30pm on some, but not all dates; there will be some additional Sunday rehearsals, although dates are yet to be confirmed.
‘Oklahoma!’ will be directed by Russell Langdown. Russell said, “SALOS regularly have children appearing in shows and our casting workshops have always been very popular. Our recent production of “Wizard of Oz” saw well over 100 children auditioning to perform with us. We always try to make sure our children’s cast learn new skills at the same time as having great fun being part of such a large-scale production in a professional theatre. We are sure the children will really enjoy being part of “Oklahoma!”
