A DRAMA group is on the lookout for farmers and cowboys to join their show.Spectrum Drama Group, the junior section of Worle Operatic and Dramatic Society, is planning a production of the acclaimed musical Oklahoma! next year but need more boys and young men to join the show.Production co-ordinator Kate Emmery said: "Spectrum is undertaking the junior version of Oklahoma! and, as with many drama groups, there are never enough young men to fill all the male roles. "We really would like to hear from any boys or young men who may be interested in participating in the show."We are looking for talented young performers to play a variety of roles and to join the chorus. We are looking for youngsters who have lots of energy and enthusiasm, and an ability to act, sing and dance would be an advantage but is not essential."Oklahoma features a wonderful array of memorable songs, written and composed by Rodgers and Hammerstein.The show is being staged at The Blakehay in Wadham Street, Weston, on June 30, 2007.Any youngsters interested in finding out more about the project can contact Kate Emmery on 07092 303363.
