ST. CLOUD — Troubled love takes center stage this (Thursday) evening with the opening of “Oklahoma!” the musical.

Students from the Home-school Theatre, a group of home-schooled students from the St. Cloud area are performing in their version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Broadway musical at Calvary Church.

The show isn’t your typical musical. Director, Tim Rydberg says this musical is different from other musicals because it focuses more on acting and less on the technical aspects of the show.
