Set in the heart of America, where the corn is as high as an elephant's eye, comes Oklahoma!, one of Rodgers and Hammerstein's most cherished musicals. Follow the beloved story of Laurey Williams and her suitors, Curly McLain and Jud Fry; as well as spitfire, Ado Annie and her patient beau, Will Parker. Featuring timeless songs such as "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 "Oklahoma!," this landmark, Pulitzer Prize winning musical will have you saying, "Oklahoma O.K.!"

The creative teams from BTG's The Who's Tommy (2011) and A Chorus Line (2012) return to our stages to bring the heartland to the Berkshires. Eric Hill returns as director, Gerry McIntyre as choreographer and Steven Freeman as musical director.
