Meet Micah Hughes – one of our younger cast members – but an OCP veteran!1) How did you get involved with this production of OCP’s Oklahoma? Well, I have been in several other OCP productions, which have all been very fun, so when they announced Oklahoma! as the next show, my first thought was “I am totally doing this!”.2) Have you ever performed in a musical before? If so, what? Like I said, I have been with OCP for a while. My first show with them was The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, then Cinderella the Musical, Seussical, Guys and Dolls, and last summer, Annie. I was also in my school’s production of the Lion King Jr.3) What is your favorite play/musical? My favorite musical of all time would have to be Hamilton. I just love all the music, and I know all of the songs by heart!4) What is your “dream role?” I have so many dream roles, it’s hard to choose one, but if I did it would have to be either Angelica from Hamilton, or Elphaba from Wicked.5) What has been your favorite part of being involved in Oklahoma so far? I think the costumes and the dancing are my favorite parts of being in Oklahoma. It’s been fun but hard to learn all of the choreography.6) What do you most look forward to about the show? I look forward to seeing how many people turn out to see the show, and being able to show the audience everything the we’ve learned and done to put on this show.
7). What do you do in your “real” life? ie: job, hobbies, retired from? I am going to be an 8th grader at Montessori Community School, which is in Durham. Besides acting, I love to sing and play the guitar. I also love going to see other shows. Lets just say I’m a musical theatre nerd!
