It's that time of year! Opening week for the annual summer musical at Vanguard Theatre in Point Loma. The first collaboration by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma! opened on Broadway in 1943. In 1955, Shirley Jones and Gordon MacRae immortalized it on film.
You'll recognize some of your favorite Vanguard actors, see some of your favorites return and welcome the talent of our newcomers. I'll be appearing as Aunt Eller. The sets, lighting, costumes and music are amazing. What a group of talented people I am fortunate to work with!
I hope you'll be able to attend one of the performances. The production opens Friday, July 13 and runs until July 29. For more information or to order tickets online, visit the Vanguard website. Get your tickets in advance as many performances are already sold out!
For a sneak preview, attend the Music at Dusk concert on Monday night, July 16 at 6:30 in the amphitheater behind the church. We'll be singing Oklahoma! at intermission. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the free concert in beautiful Point Loma.
