Synopsis

Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. 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!

(Musical, Rated PG)

CHARACTERS

  • AUNT ELLER - A middle-aged down-to-earth 'mother to everyone'. She is Laurey's aunt and confidante, and has a very friendly personality.
  • CURLY - The young cowman in love with Laurey. His heart is in the right place and he is strong in facing up to Jud.
  • LAUREY - Our heroine. She is confused about Curly and seems always to be waiting for him to make the first move; she is too innocent to see that her acceptance of Jud's invitation will mean trouble.
  • IKE SKIDMORE - A ranch-house cowman.
  • SLIM, FRED - Cowman friends of Ike and Curly's.
  • WILL PARKER - A hapless young cowman who is very much in love with Annie. He has a pleasant happy-go-lucky disposition, but needs to assert himself strongly to get her full attention.
  • JUD FRY - The hired hand on Laurey's farm. Sullen, mysterious and dangerous. Nobody likes him and he lives a lonely depressive existence in the smokehouse, dreaming broodily of real women, not the pin-ups on the walls.
  • ADO ANNIE - A flirtatious girl who cannot resist any man, particularly if a wedding ring is in prospect.
  • ALI HAKIM - A Persian peddler and a shrewd salesman. A great one for the girls, but not too adept at avoiding shotguns!
  • GERTIE - Another flirt whose presence is always announced by her ear-piercing laugh. Like Annie, she just wants to get married to someone.
  • ELLEN, KATE, SYLVIE,ARMINA, AGGIE - A group of fun-loving farmer's daughters who form the ensemble at the Box Social and the ballet at the end of Act One.
