Set in Oklahoma just after the turn of the century, this Rodgers and Hammerstein masterpiece opened in 1943, launching a golden era in American musical theater that fuses story and song together with the stunning choreography of the legendary Agnes De Mille. Called The Best Musical of the Century by the New York Drama League, OKLAHOMA! features a timeless score including: Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin', People Will Say We're in Love, and the exhilarating title song Oklahoma." Bringing great classic American musicals to life for new audiences alongside showcasing new Broadway shows through locally produced, professional productions, is a cornerstone of CLO's mission and 73-year history.
