This is not your mother’s Oklahoma! Inspired by the toughness of the prairie, Artistic Director Molly Smith sets her production in the robust world of territory filled with a dynamic cast as rich and complex as great tapestry of America itself. With Rodgers and Hammerstein’s timeless music, Oklahoma! celebrates the vigor of America’s pioneering spirit with athletic dance and boot-stomping energy. Chock full of classic tunes such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” and “People Will Say We’re in Love,” this muscular production will thrill audiences young and old.
