Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!, set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre that is still being followed today and becomes the next musical production for the Texas High School Tiger Theatre Company.
Set in a Western Indian territory, just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story.
Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. Their adventures in making a new life together in a brand-new state provides the highpoint of Oklahoma!
