Music by Richard Rodgers
Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Based on the play "Green Grow the Lilacs" by Lynn Riggs

It's the farmer vs. the cowboy and a classic story of true love in the Oklahoma territory of the early 1900's. Curly has trouble admitting his feelings to Laurey, as does she. Will Parker finds his girlfriend, Ado Annie, just can't seem to say "No" to other men. Despite the interference of a brooding farm hand and a roaming peddler, all ends happily as both couples tie the knot and make a new life together in a brand-new state, Oklahoma!

Eric Karwisch will direct Footlite's fourth production of Oklahoma!
