Oklahoma!' opens in 5-performance run at LWC

'The musical, which debuted in 1943, is still a yardstick against which other musicals are measured, and he noted it is one of the first storyline musicals in which the narrative unfolds in both the script and music.' - ROBERT BROCK

By Venus Popplewell

COLUMBIA, KY - One of the great American musicals, Oklahoma! will be performed at 7pmCT, Wed-Thu-Fri-Sat, 27-28-29-30 April, 2016, then at 2pmCT Sun, 1 May 2016, all in V.P. Henry Auditorium, 210 Lindsey Wilson Street, Columbia, KY.


Based on the Lynn Riggs play Green Grow the Lilacs, Oklahoma! was the first collaboration between theater giants Oscar Hammerstein II and Richard Rodgers.

The LWC production of Oklahoma! will be directed by Assistant Professor of Theatre Robert Brock. Brock said the musical, which debuted in 1943, is still a yardstick against which other musicals are measured, and he noted it is one of the first storyline musicals in which the narrative unfolds in both the script and music.

"It is solid American," Brock said. "It's about settling a new land. It's not coming to America, but rather settling a new part of America. It has everything -- it has some dark stuff, it has a love story, it has a lot of conflict ... and some great, great songs with great lyrics."
