Oklahoma!

Based on the play "GREEN GROW THE LILACS" by Lynn Riggs

[Musical]

January 9 - February 14, 1998
Curtain Time 8:00 PM

One of the most famous and beloved musicals of all time, with classic songs like "Oh What A Beautiful Mornin'", "Surrey With A Fringe On Top", "Kansas City" and many more. Curly, the handsome cowboy, and Laurie, the winsome farm girl, must struggle to make a new life together and you'll be cheering them all the way to Oklahoma!


Rodgers and Hammerstein's first collaboration, "Oklahoma!" rings in the New Year at the Magic Circle Repertory Theatre. 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.

Once again the Magic Circle Theatre has crafted a highly talented cast, directed and choreographed by Anneliese Childress-Wyllie:
