Twenty-five students are ready to don wigs, wear plaid clothing and shake off the stage fright to make the play a reality come opening night, rescheduled to April 11 through April 13.

“Oklahoma” is set in 1906 Oklahoma Territory outside the town of Claremore. It tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams. A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancée, Ado Annie.

Ashley Adams and Shelly Flagglet also helped Austin and the students put the show together as Kaitlyn Benz constructed the background to set the play’s scene.

“There will be lots of singing and dancing,” said Meghan Voigt, who is considered the “lead person.”

Katie McFadden said she hopes for a big success and is helping Voight to pull off a true show-stopping number.

But it’s also been a learning experience, according to Gracie Kudrna.
