Surrey-OklahomaOklahoma! is the first musical written by the team of composer Richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein II. The musical is based on Lynn Riggs’ 1931 play, Green Grow the Lilacs.

SONG LIST: • Oh, What A Beautiful Morning • The Surrey With the Fringe On Top • Kansas City • I Cain’t Say No • Many A New Day • It’s A Scandal! It’s An Outrage! • People Will Say We’re In Love • Pore Jud Is Daid • Lonely Room • Out of My Dreams • The Farmer and the Cowman • All Err Nothin’ • Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA! tells of fun, love and romance in the lives of the families living in the Oklahoma territory at the turn of the century. This is Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration and, in many ways, their most innovative. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, a high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful backdrop against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love is seldom smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love’s journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road.
