Kuna production of 'Oklahoma!' in new auditorium was a rousing success
When Kuna High School music teacher and choir director Brandi Cook took the stage on opening night last Thursday to introduce the inaugural production in the new Kuna Performing Arts Auditorium, she was overcome with emotion.
Cook became choked up as she remembered starting her job at Kuna High with 30 students in the choir program and not being able to fill the high school commons for a concert.
As she stood before the packed house of 800-plus attendees for opening night of “Oklahoma,” she tearfully recalled early discussions about a performing arts auditorium and being told she had to make sure she had a program good enough for such a facility.
Cook and the rest of the team in the Kuna school district can rest assured that the program is beyond good enough.
Thursday’s opening night was a rousing success all the way down the line.
