Theatre Under The Stars presents Oklahoma!
The first collaboration by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma! is often considered the single most important work in the musical theater canon. The original production was a smash hit on Broadway running for an unprecedented 2,212 performances. It’s had countless revivals, national tours, an Academy Award-winning film adaptation, and won a special Pulitzer Prize for Rodgers and Hammerstein in 1944.
Based on Lynn Riggs’ play, Green Grow the Lilacs, Oklahoma! centers on life in the early 1900s in the rural farmland of Oklahoma, and the love story between Curly and Laurey. Full of familiar tunes, it's a rousing and optimistic story of love, redemption, renewal. and hard work.
Theatre Under The Stars’ production of Oklahoma! will be choreographed by Stanton Welch AM, Artistic Director of Houston Ballet.
