Coronado performs musical ‘Oklahoma!’

       The musical “Oklahoma!” will be presented by the Coronado High School Performing Arts Department Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 15-17.
       All shows will be in the school auditorium at 1590 W. Filllmore St. Times will be 7 p.m. each day, plus an earlier matinee Nov. 17 at 2 p.m.
       Tickets will be available at the door for $10 (adults) and $8 (students).
       The students will perform the full musical by Rodgers and Hammerstein, according to drama director Elizabeth Kahn, including actors singing to musical accompaniment from 22 Coronado musicians.
       Originally produced in 1943, “Oklahoma!” was one of the longest running shows in Broadway history, with a story about early 1900s Oklahoma settlers. It was made into a motion picture in 1955.
       Holmes sends support
       With several Holmes Middle School students having family members or friends affected by Hurricane Sandy, the Grays Peak eighth grade classes (taught by Lori Waddle, and Mike Wilshusen) created a support banner. The students signed it, made postcards from the photo and sent them to people they knew who were affected.
       The banner says “Holmes Middle School is thinking of you!”
