Sasha Hutchings, Sean Grandillo, Sis & More to Star in the OKLAHOMA! National Tour

The tour will stop in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and more.

Oklahoma!

Producer Eva Price announced complete casting today for the critically-acclaimed, Tony Award-winning production of Rogers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!. The highly anticipated North American tour begins performances at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, MN on November 9, 2021 and will continue to play over 25 cities during the 2021-2022 season including stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Chicago and Nashville, with additional cities to be announced.

"Oklahoma! is the quintessential and classic American musical. When the original production opened in 1943, it was a groundbreaking celebration of country and community. Soldiers returned from war and found escape and affirmation while in the audience of the first ever modern American musical. Our production specifically is built around the idea of a community coming together in shared experience," said Eva Price, producer. "Well, we've been through a hell of a shared experience in our country over the last 18 months, and we're grateful for the opportunity to gather-safely-with audiences in theatres across America to appreciate this story anew."

"Every element of this production looks, sounds and feels like America today--and we're delighted to announce a cast of remarkable storytellers that represent the rich, diverse community of our country," said Price.
