Two Juniors Perform in Young Actors Production of “Oklahoma!”

CHS juniors Matt Miyagi and Tres Turner were cast by the Young Actors Program at Theatre Baton Rouge to perform in Rodgers and Hammersteiní´s íÍOklahoma!íñ

Miyagi is playing the role of Jud Fry while Turner doubles up the roles of Slim and Dream Curly. The show’s two-week run will come to an end this Sunday with a matinee performance.

Out of the more than 100 students who auditioned, less than 40 were cast in the musical. The purpose of our Young Actors Program is to teach, create, and nurture the artistic development of young people ages seven to 18 through performance opportunities of the highest quality, and to focus on classics of musical theatre and play production that has been specifically developed for young performers to perform for general audiences.
