Portsmouth West High School's rendition of Oklahoma! 

by Hunter Maynard

Mothers-Day Weekend (May 10-12th) Portsmouth West's Musical Department will be doing their rendition of Oklahoma!

The show is set in the Oklahoma territory in the early 1900's. It tells the story of two lovers - Curly the cowboy who has trouble admitting his feelings to Laurey, and Laurey the small town farm girl who is too stubborn to admit her feelings. The hired hand named Jud Fry causes some issues in this roller-coaster of a musical.

Ticket release date has not been set! 

We all hope to see you there and to give you a big Oklahoma Hello!

Portsmouth West High School would like to thank the State Highway Patrol Portsmouth Post for their participation in the 2019 Annual Staff vs Troopers basketball game, a prom fundraising event. Our talented staff had a strong showing, but the State Troopers pulled ahead in the final minute with a win.  We look forward for next year, gentleman!
