A brand new revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical Oklahoma!
Set on America’s Western Frontier, against a background of conflict between farmers and cattlemen, Oklahoma! perfectly integrates song, dance and story to tell the tale of farm girl Laurey and the two rivals for her affections, happy go-lucky cowboy Curly and the sinister farm hand Jud.
Famously, the show opens with ‘Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’ and contains a sumptuous and rousing score full of wonderful songs such as ‘The Surrey with The Fringe on Top’, ‘People Will Say We’re in Love’, ‘Many a New Day’, ‘I Cain’t Say No’, and the final rousing chorus of ‘Oklahoma’ – as the music soars the audience is carried along on the emotional journey of one of the most famous love stories in musical history.
The show stars one of Britain’s most popular leading ladies Marti Webb as Aunt Eller (West End credits include Blood Brothers, Tell me On A Sunday, Song and Dance, Evita, Cats, Thoroughly Modern Millie and many more), and Mark Evans, as Curly, best known as the runner up in the BBC’s Your Country Needs You, the search for a singer to represent Britain in the Eurovision song contest. Mark however has a string of musical theatre credits to his name including Spamalot and Wicked in the West End, he played the global heart-throb Troy Bolton in the London cast of High School Musical and the cult movie heart throb Brad Majors in the Rocky Horror Show.
