Time to head out on the surrey!

The Norwalk High School students and director Robyn Rogers will present the musical performance “Oklahoma!” Thursday through Sunday at the school’s Ernsthausen Performing Arts Center. All are invited to enjoy a “beautiful day” with the performance. 

“Oklahoma!” is a classic Academy Award-winning musical filled with timeless songs such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin,” “Kansas City,” “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top,” “The Farmer and the Cowman” and of course, “Oklahoma!”

Seniors Lauren Steffanni and Alyssa Tuttle share the star role as Laurey, the female lead in this production full of cowboys, farmers and country women.

“There are a lot of love triangles,” Steffani said. “I think it will appeal to a lot of people. The older ones can enjoy seeing it again and it’s fun for the little kids.”

Tuttle agreed.

“It’s a family show,” she said. “It’s kind of like an old Western. … It has some serious scenes and some light-hearted ones.”

“It’s a classic,” Rogers said. “It’s an American favorite. … It’s very funny and a lot of familiar music.”

Performances are set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Tickets, which cost $8 for general admission and $15 for VIP, can be purchased from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday at the box office and one hour before each show.
