Banbridge Musical Society Presents
Oklahoma! Wed 17-Sat 20 Apr | 7.30pm | £16.00
Banbridge Musical Society presents ‘Oklahoma!’, the ground-breaking musical that set the stage for all that followed! Rodgers & Hammerstein’s exuberant classic is a lively, tuneful musical full of cowboys, farmers, romance and fearless optimism.
In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colourful background for Curly, a charming cowboy, and Laurey, a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination and the promise of a new land.
This amateur production of OKLAHOMA! is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
