This November was the fall musical performance of Oklahoma from Rodgers and Hammerstein productions. Along with Oklahoma R&Hs productions include; CarouselSouth PacificThe King and IThe Sound of Music, and Flower Drum Song. Circle High School’s drama and music department created the wonderful performance of Oklahoma.

Oklahoma is one of the most famous musicals by Rodgers and Hammerstein. One of the many goals for Circle high is to get nominated for one or more Jester Awards. Jester Awards are like a Grammy however it’s for high schools. Last year CHS put on the Disney production of the Little Mermaid and which saw the production team earning four Jester awards on eight total nominations. They are hoping for something magical like getting nominated for at least one Jester Award this year.

Both main characters of course are important to the production, however we need not forget about the supporting actors/actresses that were a great success as well. One being Ali Hakim played by Drake Middleton is also a senior, and is hoping to become a music educator some day. Middleton started in band when he was in 5th grade and started singing and being a part of musical when he was a sophomore.

“I want to do this the rest if my life because I enjoy it so much.” says Middleton

Another character that is a crowd favorite is Will Parker played by Kyle Huffman a junior here at CHS. Huffman is a part of four music classes including; Madrigals, Acapella, Band, and Jazz band. Huffman also started band in 5th grade and was skeptical however he started singing more when he was a sophomore, and figured out that he really enjoyed music and continued.

“I couldn’t make it through school without any of my four music classes.” says Huffman.

The music program is vital to many academically performing students that are also talented. Yes, it does contribute to stress to some extent however for many it is a stress relief. The students mentioned above have been in music for many years and most plan to continue with their musical careers.
