“OFFERS AUDIENCES A NEW VISION OF THEMSELVES.”

– THE NEW YORKER

Set at the turn of the century, cowboys and farmers are fighting over fences and water rights, while young farm girl Laurey can’t decide between two suitors vying for her affection.

Directed by Richard Carroll (Calamity Jane, The Show Goes On, Once), the production features timeless hits such as Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’, People Will Say We’re in Love, and The Surrey With the Fringe on Top. Enjoy bluegrass, country and even a square-dance with the characters at the Box Social. This Oklahoma! is an off-balance society full of outsiders and misfits.

A fresh look at a classic musical that will bring out the shadows in the cornfields and guns in the smokehouse. This spirited spectacle invites you to join the townsfolk and band members in the heart of the action, right on the Heath Ledger Theatre stage.
