Theatre Wesleyan's production of OKLAHOMA! coincides with the show's 75th Anniversary Celebration by The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization.
Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together, we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!
"Calling Rodgers and Hammerstein's OKLAHOMA! a classic American musical is an understatement. OKLAHOMA! is firmly embedded in the canon of America's greatest cultural creations." - Wichita Eagle
"A masterpiece... Rodgers and Hammerstein are truly up there with Eugene O'Neill as the great American theatre creators." - New York Post
"If ever a show earned its exclamation point, it's this one!" - Wall Street Journal
