Howdy, pardners - saddle up for Edinburgh Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s
production of "Oklahoma!" at the Church Hill Theatre this October!
Following their hit productions of "South Pacific" and "Me and My Girl", and the recent five-star smash "Ruddygore", EDGAS are excited to present this world-famous tale of love, adventure, rivalry, and cowboys.
With famous songs such as “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” and "People will say we’re in love" as well as the iconoc title number, this energetic show will have you line-dancing all the way home. Yee-haw!
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!
