Portage Area Community Theatre (PACT) is pleased to announce the cast for its upcoming fall production of Oklahoma, perhaps the most famous of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musicals. It is set in the territory of Oklahoma in 1906 when it’s about to become a state of the Union. Some of the well-known songs are: “Oh What a Beautiful Morning”, “Oklahoma”, and “People Will Say We’re in Love”.

The director team consists of Stephen Murray of Sun Prairie, formerly of Chicago, Marion Hendrickson of Arlington, and Michelle Pare of Lodi. They have chosen the following people in lead roles: Mark Lefeber as Curly, Doreen Viking as Laurey, Leslie Nevens as Aunt Eller, Greg Frank as Jud, Sam Clemmons as Will, and Olivia Fuqua as Ado Annie. Others in the cast are: Eric Weiss, Elizabeth Ziehmke, Britton Rea, Brian Conners, John Ribar, John Lehman, Lisa Clemmons, Joann Finn, Loretta Smith, Jenna Schatzman, Heidi Boaz, Anna Davidson, and Joseph Clemmons.

The production of Oklahoma will be staged at the Portage Center for the Arts on November 13-16 and again November 20-23. Keep an eye our website for ticket information and other news about the show!

Unfortunately, some lowlife has decided to make the PACT website the target of multiple Malware attacks. This means that they somehow got onto the site, and changed our webpages so that they might cause you trouble.

Google noticed this first, and you may have seen the red warning screen they posted. While I appreciated this (as a protection for you), I was not prepared for the amount of work it would take to make things right.

We are completely rebuilding the website so there will no longer be a chance of these malicious attacks. It will take some time to bring everything back up to par, but it will be better and safer. In the meantime, come and see a show with us – the Box Office is open!
