Watch Our Production Of Oklahoma!

Oklahoma! is the first musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein. The musical is based on Lynn Riggs’ 1931 play, Green Grow the Lilacs. Set in farm country outside the town of Claremore, Indian Territory, in 1906, it tells the story of farm girl Laurey Williams and her courtship by two rival suitors, cowboy Curly McLain and the sinister and frightening farmhand, Jud Fry. A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancée, Ado Annie. 

The original Broadway production opened on March 31, 1943. It was a box office hit and ran for an unprecedented 2,212 performances, later enjoying award-winning rivals, national tours, foreign productions and an Oscar-winning 1955 film adaption. Rodgers and Hammerstein won a special Pulitzer Prize for Oklahoma! in 1944.
