'Oklahoma!' coming Apr. 8, 9, 10

Posted on: March 31, 2016

Dust off those boots and saddle up for a musical adventure as Little Miami High School Theater presents Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" on Apr. 8, 9 and 10.

Rodgers & 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 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.

The play stars LMHS senior Evan Wittekind as Curly and sophomore Catie Cummings as Laurey. Be prepared for song, dance and lots of surprises.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Apr. 8 and 9, and 2 p.m. on Apr. 10. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door. Theatergoers may also reserve their tickets online at www.littlemiamitheatre.weebly.com.

OKLAHOMA! is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com.
