Photos: Cave Spring and Hidden Valley students in Burton Performing Arts Center production “Oklahoma!”
Fredric Eichelman of Salem shares photos from the recently performed production “Oklahoma!” held at William Byrd High School Saturday and Sunday March 26 and 27 at William Byrd High School.
Olivia Chappelear, Nate Wulff, and Tony d’Aleilo are from Cave Spring and Hidden Valley High Schools.
Eichelman shares these cast photos and captions:
1. I am with Tyler Haynie who plays Curly, the male lead. He is a junior at Glenvar, and I like his Curly better than the film version characterization. Great voice.
2. Now this old cowboy is with Olivia Chappelear who plays Laurie. She graduates this year and like Tyler, was tops in her role.
3. Second male lead Tony d’Aleilo was sensational as Will, especially his dancing. He is a junior and here is pictured with Carol.
4. I’m trying to take on Nate Wulff who plays Jud. Nate graduates this year. The match was a draw.
5. Carolyn and I are with my stage daughter, Madison Butler, a Sophomore who has a real future and we pray we can keep her in the program despite a scheduling conflict next year. A lovely voice and great at improv.
6. Carolyn is flanked by Irene and Hal Chapman who made it to opening night.
7. Bootie Chewning is on the CPA advisory board as am I and was at every performance.
Such great talent. Carol is so fortunate to have these young people to work with.
