Description

OKLAHOMA!

Amateur

Lisnagarvey Operatic Society are proud to present…OKLAHOMA! OKLAHOMA! is the first musical written by the team of composer Richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein II. The musical is based on Lynn Riggs’ 1931 play, Green Grow the Lilacs. Set against the backdrop of ranching Oklahoma, Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Judd, a hired hand at Laurey’s home, also has feelings for her. Together, she and Curly must do something to save their relationship and keep Judd from doing something terrible. Woven into this plot is the life of Ado Annie, the girl that ‘Cain’t say no’. Ado Annie is torn between Will, a cowboy who has strong feelings for her, and Ali Hakim, a peddler who’s a ladies’ man and doesn’t want to marry her. With a musical score including favourites such as: ‘Oh what a Beautiful Morning’, ‘A Surrey with a Fringe on Top’, ‘The Farmer and the Cowman’ and the triumphant ‘OKLAHOMA!’ Add in, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys and we have a colourful show full of fun, music and romance for everyone! The performance is expected to finish at approximately 10pm.
