To create interest in the production, we did a small Q & A with some of our cast members:


Ryan: What has been your favorite part of this show?

Claire Early (Rosary ‘21, cast as Aunt Eller): The people are my favorite part of the show! Everyone is so committed to their roles, both on and off stage, and we’re all one big family.

Ryan: Why do you think people should come to see Oklahoma!?

Claire: People should come to see it because I need to sell tickets. Promo code EARLY.


Ryan: What is your favorite thing about your character?

Samuel George (Servite ‘21, cast as Curly): My favorite thing about Curly is his subtle but brave personality. He isn’t afraid to make hints that he likes Laurey. But when he does, they aren’t direct. It gives him a certain charm.

Ryan: Do you like your character? Why?

Sam: I do! Curly is the character everybody is “rooting” for throughout the show. Thus, the audience is following this character and hoping he gets what he wants all the way until the end of the show. Having that support of other characters helps make determined and bold choices on stage.


Ryan: Why do you like Oklahoma!?

Matthew Cristobal (Servite ‘19, cast as Will Parker): I like Oklahoma because allows me to release the inner cowboy that has instilled in me as a child.  

Ryan: Who is your favorite character besides yours?

Matthew: My favorite character in the show is Ali Hakim because he adds a great contrast to other characters in the rest of the cast.
