Fresh, young and energetic are not words director Gina Vitucci said most people usually use to describe "Oklahoma!"

The 1943 Broadway musical has been done time and time again by adults, but Vitucci said she thinks it’s a perfect show for high school students.

“I love 'Oklahoma!' with young people because it really is about teenagers,” she said.

Although the show will be just the second one Vitucci has directed, she has a lifelong passion for theater and the experience to back it up.
