The Sound of Music steps in for Oklahoma!

A lack of Curly McLains, Jud Frys, Will Parkers, Andrew Carnes, Ali Hakims and Ike Skidmores has led to the cancellation of the planned 2012 Revelstoke Theatre Production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!

A lack of Curly McLains, Jud Frys, Will Parkers, Andrew Carnes, Ali Hakims and Ike Skidmores has led to the cancellation of the planned 2012 Revelstoke Theatre Company production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!

But musical theatre fans need not despair, says spokesperson Alan Chell; the company is moving forward with a production of The Sound of Music, which will be the first major stage event at the new theatre in the new Revelstoke Secondary School.

Chell explains that a shortfall of male actors led to the decision. Oh well, the show — albeit a different one — will go on.

“We are very excited about having the first musical in the new community theatre be one of the most popular Broadway musicals of all time,” Chell said in an email. “We locally produced Sound of Music about 15 years ago … and the audiences loved it.”

If you didn’t audition for Oklahoma! but would love to take a shot at portraying Maria, Captain Von Trapp, the Von Trapp children or any other cast member, you still have a chance. There will be one last supplemental casting call on Oct. 13 for those who didn’t previously audition. They hope to have the cast set for Oct. 14, and a production and cast script run through is set for Oct. 24.

The auditions are at the Revelstoke Seniors’ Centre on Thursday, Oct. 13 from 7–9 p.m.
