Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Performers in a local musical are using their talents to help tornado victims.

The Gooseberry Park Players are giving some of the proceeds from their production of "Oklahoma!" to tornado-ravaged communities in Oklahoma.

Donation buckets will be placed in the lobby and half of the concession revenue will be donated through the Red Cross.

It's ties in nicely with the message of the musical.

Debbie Griffith- Managing Artistic Director: "One of the messages to me is the farmer and the cowman should be friends. And I love that, because it's like, (sung) 'oh the farmer and the cowman should be friends, one man likes to push a plow, the other likes to chase a cow, but that's no reason why they can't be friends.' You may be thinking this route and you going that route, but when it comes to working together, we focus on helping one another."

"Oklahoma" will run July 16-21st at Frances Fraizer Comstock Theatre on the Concordia College campus.
