This post is in honor of my mom's debut in the Elberton Community Theatre's rendition of OKLAHOMA! tonight at the Elbert Theatre. She'll be playing Aunt Eller and she's really excited to be in 6 showings of the play over the next 2 weekends. Here's the write-up in their local newspaper.
For those of you who don't know, my parents knew each other in middle school and then started dating in high school. But, it was on the set of OKLAHOMA! in their senior year of high school where they finally fell in love. Soon after graduation, they married. Mom played Laurey and Dad was in the company. Anyway, there's a lot of history with this musical and my folks. I guess I can say OKLAHOMA! is a little part of my being, too.
Anyway, good luck, mom! I can't wait to see you next weekend!!!
