AN ELITE group of talented young performers from Newtownabbey have been selected to take part in this summer’s professional musical production of Oklahoma at the Theatre at The Mill.

Set against the backdrop of ranching Oklahoma, this Broadway favourite tells the tale of love and rivalry between cowboys and farmers on the prairie.

Directed by Northern Ireland’s leading musical theatre directors Peter Corry and Wilson Shields and international choreographer Fleur Mellor, the smash hit musical showcases the cream of Northern Ireland’s top young performers who had to compete in an extensive audition process to win one of the 40 places to star in the show.

Ballyclare High School student Ryan Greer has been selected for the leading role of Ali Hakim in the production.

Corrie Earley, Connie Nicholl, Ellen Whitehead, Rachel Irons, Rachel Ker, Shannon Clements, and Sam Morgan will also be starring in the show and are all very excited about taking part in such a popular musical.

Saddle up this summer for Oklahoma, the perfect family getaway at Theatre at the Mill, running from Friday 12 to Saturday 20 August.

Tickets priced from just £9 are available to book online at www.theatreatthemill.com or from the box office on 9034 0202.
