Oklahoma!, first produced on Broadway in 1943, was a groundbreaking musical that ushered in the golden age of musical theater and set the standard for American musicals. Set in 1906, just before Oklahoma achieved statehood, the show focuses on rivalries – both farmers and ranchers  fighting over fences and land rights, and romantic rivalries. Laurie, a strong-willed farm girl, and Curly, an exuberant cowboy, deny their obvious attraction, creating an opportunity for farmhand Jud to come between them. Laurie’s friend, Ado Annie, finds herself torn between her local beau, Will, and the smooth-talking traveling salesman, Ali Hakim. Pulling it all together are the numerous songs and dance numbers that have made Oklahoma! an American musical classic, including Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’People Will Say We’re in LoveThe Surrey with the Fringe On Top, and, of course, Oklahoma!

The Mira Costa production is directed by Cary Jordahl and Carol Mathews.
