Rodger and Hammerstein’s OKLAHOMA!

Music by RICHARD RODGERS
Book & Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II
Based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs
Original Dances by Agnes de Mille

Directed & Musical Directed by Walter A. Webster
Stage Managed by Linda Cox

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration, OKLAHOMA!, set the standards of musical theatre forever. In a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Laurey, an independent farmgirl, falls for a charming cowboy, Curly. When romance is threatened by a sinister farmhand, tension rises within the love triangle. Dreams — and nightmares — present themselves, but will the couple part ways forever or will they unite? Although the road to true love never runs smooth, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. With boot-stomping energy, OKLAHOMA! celebrates the vigor of America’s pioneering spirit.

OKLAHOMA! is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com.
