After the tremendous success and the appeal of Singin’ in the Rain and Legally Blonde, Leamington and Warwick Musical Society is thrilled to present another full-on Company show which has a heart-warming story, a fabulous musical score and is appreciated and loved worldwide.

Winner of numerous awards including the Pulitzer Prize, an Olivier Award and a Special Tony Award, Oklahoma! is packed with memorable songs and the choreography is a dancer’s dream.

Set in Oklahoma Territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906, the musical tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams and there is a secondary romance concerning cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancée, Ado Annie. The famous dream sequence ballet reflects Laurey’s struggle with her feelings about two men, Curly and Jud Fry – a dark, disturbed loner. There are conflicts and rivalry between the farmers and the cowmen but lots of fun and humour along the way.

Directed by Stephen Duckham, with Musical Direction by Matt Flint, Choreography by Hannah Hampson, and with an energetic cast, Oklahoma! is certain to have all the hallmarks of good, solid entertainment.

‘Oh What a Beautiful Mornin’ ’, ‘People Will Say We’re in Love’, ‘The Farmer and the Cowman’, ‘The Surrey with the Fringe on Top’, ‘Many a New Day’, ‘Kansas City’, etc. all build up to the show’s grand finale in celebration of the territory’s brand new state – Oklahoma!

An amateur production by arrangement with R&H Theatricals Europe
