(( Anna Wentworth/Arts Reviewer: Springtime not only brings flowers and robins, but a plethora of theatrical productions to the area.
Beginning tonight, Salem High School presents their production of the musical "Oklahoma", featuring some fine performers.
One of the strongest voices belongs to Shaun Dobbins who plays Curley, the cowboy who romances the lovely Laurey played by Kristin Kier.
The play is set in Oklahoma territory just before Oklahoma becomes a state and when conflicts still exist between the cowboys and farmers.
One of the farmers--a hired hand named Jud--wants Laurey and holds a violent grudge against Curley.
Laurey's advisor in affairs of the heart is Aunt Eller--Brooke Spencer--who has a sweet, but soft, voice.
Songs include "Oklahoma", "Surrey with the Fringe on Top" and "Oh, What Beautiful Morning".
The principals are very good and they have good support from the chorus, dancers, and orchestra.
Choreography by Beth White is well handled. This collaboration between the drama department led by Rachel Sailer, and the music department--directed by Bill Snyder, runs through Saturday night at Salem High School.
Other theatrical productions in our area this weekend.
Franklin Co. High School presents "Nunsense".
Catch "Three Tall Women" by Edward Albee at Mill Mountain's Theatre B.
"House of Frankenstein" at Playmakers of Blacksburg.
And, enjoy festivals of one-act plays at both Washington & Lee in Lexington and Randolph-Macon Woman's College in Lynchburg.))
