Oklahoma! opens at NCHS
Natrona County High School will celebrate 75 years of Rodgers and Hammerstein with their classic musical Oklahoma! at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and March 21-22 and at 2 p.m. on March 23 in the John F. Welsh Auditorium. This classic musical centers around the love triangles of strapping cowboy Curley, the spitfire farmer Laurey and her less-than honorable farmhand Jud, as well as the comic relationship of bronc-buster Will, town flirt Ado Annie and Ali Hakim, the Persian peddler. Audiences will thrill at the fantastic music of Richard Rodgers and the clever lyrics of Oscar Hammerstein II.
“On any given day, there are two productions of Oklahoma! being produced somewhere in America, and it’s easy to see why,” said Zachary Schneider, the show’s director. “This is the show that created the modern musical by integrating scenes, songs and dances into a unified whole. The songs reveal character and story rather than just being a nice break for pretty music.”
NCHS is also home to International Thespian Society Troupe No. 1. Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, the International Thespian Society is a honor society that promotes and celebrates theatre excellence at the highest level. “For 90 years, NC has led the way as Thespian Troupe No. 1,” Schneider said.
Coulter & Company at Melrose

The group entertains audiences in public concerts and private events in and around Casper. The only admittance fee is tipping the band.

Celebrate Recovery every Friday
Celebrate Recovery meets at 5:30 p.m. every Friday at Highland Park Community Church, just south of Elkhorn Valley Rehabilitation Hospital on East Second Street. A family meal starts the evening, followed by praise and worship. At 7 p.m. there’s either a lesson from Celebrate Recovery’s planned curriculum or a testimony by a person who has found recovery through Christ. Then people go to gender-specific small groups until 8:30 p.m. when dessert and fellowship conclude the evening. Child care is available at no cost. For more information contact Chris at 265-4073.
