Celebrating 100 years of performing in Retford, RAOS is proud to bring one of its all-time favourite musicals to the stage once again. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the 20th century, the high spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colourful 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. That they will succeed in making a new life together, we have no doubt, ant that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA! With songs such as ‘Oh What a Beautiful Morning’, ‘The Surrey with a Fringe on Top’, ‘People will say we’re in Love’ and the comical ‘I Cain’t Say No’, this production cannot fail to please young and old alike.
