Oxfordshire Youth Theatre ‘cain’t’ say no to Oklahoma!
Young singers, actors, and dancers from all over Oxfordshire will be showcasing their creative talents in an upcoming production of Oklahoma!
The dedicated teens from Oxfordshire Youth Music Theatre – part of Oxfordshire County Council’s music service, will be performing their rendition of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic from 31 March to 2 April at the Radley College Theatre.
They will be supported by young instrumentalists from the Oxfordshire County Music Service.
Councillor Neil Fawcett, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Consumer Services, said: “The Oxfordshire Youth Music Theatre showcases some of Oxfordshire’s most talented young people. This performance will surely be a high-quality piece of theatre for all to enjoy. If you love theatre, don’t miss out!”
Oxfordshire Young Music Theatre consists of singers, dancers and actors aged 14 to 19 from across the county. It boasts a reputation for presenting high-quality youth theatre. Many former members are now enjoying successful professional careers in West End hits such as Rock of Ages and Wicked, and even anniversary performances of Les Misérables.
