A 75th Anniversary production of the classic Broadway musical Oklahoma! is presented in Romsey next week.

The popular Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein musical is the latest production by RAODS at the Plaza Theatre from Tuesday October 16 – Saturday October 20.

Set in Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the 20th Century, the spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop for the love story between Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a beautiful farm girl. The road to true love is anything but smooth, but there is no doubt that these two romantics will succeed in making a life together.

As the road to romance and the road to statehood converge, Curly and Laurey are poised to spend their new life together in a brand new state: O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A - OKLAHOMA!.

Oklahoma! was the first collaboration of famed partners Rodgers and Hammerstein. It opened on Broadway at the St. James Theatre in March, 1943, and ushered in a golden era of American musicals.
