“THERE’S A BRIGHT GOLDEN HAZE ON THE MEADOW”

It’s a beautiful morning whenever Curly sees Laurey, but Laurey’s not so sure about Curly and wonders if she really loves Jud. And Will loves Ado Annie, but Annie loves… well, everybody. She’s just a girl who cain’t say no!

Meanwhile, in the Oklahoma Territory of 1906 where they all live, farmers and ranchers lock horns in a battle over water rights and fences. When Oklahoma! opened on Broadway in 1943, it revolutionised the American musical, won a Pulitzer Prize and set the standard for modern musical theatre.

Oklahoma! features an award winning line-up of stars. Simon Gleeson’s recent successes include Jean Valjean in Les Miserablés (West End and Australia) and for The Production Company: Chess and Curtains. Anna O’Byrne (2017 Helpmann Award winner for Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady) returns from London where she’s currently starring in The Woman in White. They are joined by the award winning stars: Elise McCann, Bobby Fox, Robyn Nevin, Ben Mingay, Richard Piper,  Grant Piro and Greg Stone.

Oklahoma! is brimming with show-stopping hits: Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’, The Surrey With The Fringe On Top, People Will Say We’re in Love, I Cain’t Say No and the title song Oklahoma!
