A Broadway box-office smash, a Pulitzer Prize winner adapted into an Academy Award winning movie, Oklahoma!
an American classic that broke new ground and set the standard for
musical theatre. A rivalry between farmers and cowboys provides the
background as Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a spirited farm
girl, play out their love story. With these two headstrong romantics
holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a
country road. Oklahoma!
with glorious, much-loved songs and its famously innovative use of dance, should not be missed.
