It was being directed by a newcomer in town. In fact, he still lived in the Bay Area and was com- muting to teach at the college. The college was so brand new that some of its classes were being taught out at the fair- grounds. That director was John Probst. This would be one of the first real Broadway musicals to be presented in Plumas County, and word on the street was that the locals didn't have a chance at landing a part. In fact, word was that Probst was bringing his Own cast up from the Bay Area. There were several young women in town who audi- tioned for the show. One in particular was Jodi Beynon, a fresh, young singing upstart at the age of 23, who was de- termined to play Laurey. At her audition, she promptly confronted Probst with "What do you mean you're bringing up a cast?" Another young actress, who wanted the part of Ado Annie, also auditioned. She too was relatively new in town. That young alto was Kathy Price. The show was performed at the armory in East Quincy and ran to sold out audiences. In an interesting twist, those same performers and the director are back with the current show of "Oklahoma!" opening May 5, and running through May 9, at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy. Their roles, however, in this pro- duction are different. Kathy Price's daughter, Laurel, has landed the part that her mother played 35 years ago -- Ado Annie. Jodi Beynon is back on the stage, not as Laurey, but as Lau- rey's Aunt Eller. John Probst is the orchestra conductor for the 2010 version of the show. Director Terry Gallagher said, "It's quite a coincidence to have some of the same peo- ple involved in this produc- tion. It shows just how popu- lar "Oklahoma!" is to many people. It tells me that the mu- sic and story are timeless." Tickets are on sale now at Epilog Book, Carey Candy Co. and The Finishing Touch. Show time is 7:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Sunday, May 9. Advance tickets are $10 or $12 at the door. The cast from the 1975 productio n of "Oklahoma!" included (from left) Maxie Moon, Jodi Beynon, Kathy Price, Mark Powell, Bill Murphy and John Meyers. Beynon, who played Laurey in the earlier production, will return as Aunt Eller in this year's show. Price's daughter, Laurel, will take over Price's role as Ado Annie. Photo submitted !
