When it comes to the diverse offerings of community theater in New Orleans, don’t overlook Jesuit High School’s top-notch spring musicals. This year the school’s Philelectic Society presents “Oklahoma!” Directed by Kate Arthurs, the play was the first musical written by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein, and follows a pair of romances in the Oklahoma Territory in 1906. Songs from the show you might recognize include “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'” and “People Will Say We’re in Love.”
Performances take place tonight and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Dinner by Hurricane BBQ ($5) will be available before tonight’s show.
Tickets are $15 for general admission ($10 for students) and $20 for reserved seating ($15 for students), and the box office opens at 6:30 p.m. today and Saturday and at 1 p.m. Sunday. For more information or to purchase tickets, click here.
