"There is a certain amount of opening night magic that happens that pulls a show up to a level that it wasn't at before," said Amy Pottinger, drama teacher for Moffat County High School.

— After opening Thursday and Friday, the final shows of Moffat County High School's presentation of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" are at 2 and 7 p.m. today.

The play is a classic musical and presents many challenging numbers for students to test their vocal limitations to a crowd expecting something on par with last year's "Beauty and the Beast" production.

For many of the students, it was their last year with the high school drama department. And, as with most high school drama programs, new students get to stand in the spotlight.

"We are constantly changing," said Amy Pottinger, drama teacher for Moffat County High School, "and hopefully continuing the quality that we have established and the seniors have worked so hard to maintain."
