Rodgers and Hammerstein's first collaboration, "Oklahoma!" takes the Great River Road Theatre stage this summer in July at Prescott’s Town Square Park. A great story and show stopping tunes has made "Oklahoma!" a perennial favorite for musical theatre buffs since the Pulitzer Prize winning drama first electrified crowds at its 1943 premiere. Fifty years later the revival won a special Tony award.
The groundbreaking musical set the standards for musical theatre that are still being followed today. You'll drive home crooning such singable songs as "Surrey With The Fringe On Top", "Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin'", "Kansas City", "People Will Say We're In Love", and "Oklahoma!" No wonder, nearly every song in the sparkling score is a classic!
Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and the cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story.
