Music by RICHARD RODGERS Book and Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II Based on the play "Green Grow the Lilacs" by Lynn Riggs Original Dances by Agnes de Mille OKLAHOMA! is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com. Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration, Oklahoma!, set the standards of musical theatre forever. 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 Laurey, an independent farmgirl, falls for a charming cowboy, Curly. When romance is threatened by a sinister farmhand, tension rises within the love triangle. Dreams - and nightmares - present themselves, but will the couple part ways forever or will they unite? Although the road to true love never runs smooth, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. With boot-stomping energy, Oklahoma! celebrates the vigor of America's pioneering spirit.
