Music by Rodgers, Richard | Book by Oscar Hammerstein II | Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II | Original Dances by Agnes de Mille | Based on the play "Green Grow the Lilacs" by Lynn Riggs
Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA!

A CHRISTMAS CAROL
Dec. 3-13, 2015 H.B. Atkinson Theatre
By Charles Dickens
Adapted by Richard Nelson
Oh! but he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, Scrooge! Hard and sharp as flint, secret and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster.”
A Christmas Carol is a ghost of a tale about the mean-spirited Ebenezer Scrooge—a businessman who believes charity promotes idleness and the poor should be left to die. Having a ‘Merry Christmas’ would consist of one “boiling in his own pudding and being buried with a stake of holly through his heart” if Scrooge could have his way! In one spirited night after receiving visits from his dead business partner, and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future—Scrooge awakes to the realization he’s been given a second chance to correct his mean and surly disposition toward humanity and Christmas.

Book by Allan Knee
Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott
Little Women has been praised by critics for its ambition in adapting such a well-known story for the stage. This timeless captivating story is brought to life in this glorious mu-sical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love. Based on Louisa May Alcott's life, Little Women, follows the adventures of sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. Jo is trying to sell her stories for publication, but the publishers are not interested - her friend Professor Bhaer tells her that she has to do better and write more from herself. Begrudgingly taking this advice, Jo weaves the story of herself and her sisters and their experience growing up in Civil War America.
