Oklahoma!

Entertainment

Join Actors' Repertory Theatre of Simi for the beloved classic "Oklahoma!", celebrating its 75th anniversary since first opening on Broadway. This groundbreaking musical was Rodgers and Hammerstein's first collaboration, and in many ways was their most innovative, having set standards for musical theatre that are still being followed today. A high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys living in Western Indian Territory at the turn of the 20th century provides the colorful setting for Curly, the confident cowboy, and Laurey, the beautiful, headstrong farm girl, to play out their love story. Throw in a fierce rival vying for Laurey's attention, one flirtatious fiancee, a reluctant suitor, magnificent choreography and one of the most beautiful musical scores ever written and you have a recipe for a rip-roaring good time. This lively musical at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center features the timeless classics, "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'," "The Surrey with the Fringe On Top," "I Cain't Say No," "People Will Say We're in Love" and of course the triumphant "Oklahoma!"
