Our main production in 2001 was Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein’s ground breaking musical Oklahoma!

Set at the turn of century, the high-spirited rivalry between farmers and cowboys provides the background for the love story of Curly and Laurey, despite the efforts of farm hand Jud to derail their romance to have Laurey for himself. Eventually true love prevails and Curly, Laurey, their friends and family live happily ever after as they prepare for their territory to join the United States of America.

The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein score includes Oh What A Beautiful Mornin’, Kansas City, The Farmer and The Cowman and the iconic title song Oklahoma (which is now the state’s official anthem). The production raised £1,800 which was donated to the Renal Unit at the world famous Great Ormond Street Hospital.
