At Lyric Arts we definitely like to think of ourselves as a family...a great big, rowdy, outgoing family that's always ready to welcome a new member! So you can imagine how happy we are to have a cast that's filled with actual family members. Oklahoma! has all kinds of family connections. There's the Blomquists - Ethan, Ceili and Merry. Ethan and his wife, Cheri, have been on stage throughout their lives, and it looks like the kids are sure to follow in their footsteps.
Then we have Ryan and Brad Vanasse bringing Slim and Cord Elam to life. This is Ryan's first show back on the Main Street Stage in seven years. Welcome home, Ryan!
Aunt Eller and Will Parker are being played by mother and son, Alana and Christian LaBissioniere. Their antics and toe tapping will have you clapping along in your seats too!
We even have a real life couple on stage. Ado Annie, played by Kate Beahen, sets her cap for a certain peddler, Ali Hakim, played by Matt McNabb. Ado Annie may not have "tuck up with the peddler man," but Kate certainly has!
So come on down to Oklahoma! before it's too late, and give us a chance to welcome you into the Lyric Arts family.
