The Pequot Lakes Community Theater presentation of the Broadway musical Oklahoma opens November 9th for a six show run. Director Michael Sander said more people are probably more familiar with the movie version but except for some visual elements, there's very little difference. Sanders said the movie ends with a wildfire and there's no practical and safe way to do that on the stage. He added that Oklahoma is a very upbeat, optomistic play and that sentiment is very much a part of his production. Oklahoma curtains rise at 7:30p for the Friday and Saturday shows at at 2pm for the Sunday matinees. Contact the Pequot Lakes Community Education office for tickets. 568-9200.
