Synopsis:   

The first collaboration of famed partners Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Oklahoma! set the American musical theatre standard. Set in Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the 20th Century, the spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop for the love story between Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a beautiful farm girl. The road to true love is anything but smooth, but there is no doubt that these two romantics will succeed in making a life together. As the road to romance and the road to statehood converge, Curly and Laurey are poised to spend their new life together in a brand new state: O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A - OKLAHOMA!


Some of The Characters:


Laurey - Female, Soprano. She has an innocence and yet an air of knowledge about her. She lives with her Aunt Eller on a farm and is in love with Curly, though she may not admit it.


Curly – Male, Baritone. Has a confident swagger and deserves it, he is the most handsome man in the whole county. He is in love with Laurey, but refuses to admit it. He's a cowboy and the romantic lead. He is called Curly for his curly hair.


Aunt Eller - Female, mezzo. She acts as the town's aunt, a fun-loving caretaker. She watches over the town and a farm with her niece, Laurey and a hired hand, Jud. She sees the good in everyone.


Will Parker - Male, Tenor. Will is a cowboy who is skilled enough to compete in rodeos. Being able to do rope tricks is a plus. Will is a dance role, tap dancer preferred. He is interested in Ado Annie, but isn't the brightest bulb.


Jud Fry - Male, Baritone. Described as dark and growly by others, Jud works on the farm for Laurey and Aunt Eller. Jud does not fit in with the society he lives with, he is seen by most as an outsider and misunderstood. He has feelings for Laurey and works hard to take care of the farm for Laurey and Aunt Eller.


Ado Annie Carnes - Female, Soprano. Andrew Carnes' daughter, she “Can't Say No” to anyone. She wants everyone to be happy. Her heart is always in the right place, but she isn't always the best judge of character. A comic, romantic lead, she is wooed by Ali Hakim, but deep down she feels a connection to Will Parker.


Ali Hakim – Male. Traveling peddler who says he's from Persia (present day Iran). Though we aren't sure how much of what he says we can believe. He, like Jud, is an outsider to this community but not feared by most. He likes pretty things and women. He pursues Ado Annie and Gertie Cummings.


Gertie Cummings - Female, Alto or Soprano. From the next town over, she has eyes on Curly and isn't waiting around for Laurey to say no to him. She has a unique laugh.


Andrew Carnes - Male, Tenor. He is very protective of his daughter, Ado Annie. He doesn't want Will Parker to marry her because he believes cowboy life to be risky and unreliable. Thus, he requires that Will come up with $50 cash in order to prove he's ready to take Ado Annie's hand in marriage. A farmer, Carnes doesn't feel very kind toward cowboys in general.


Ensemble - singing-dancing ensemble with numerous small roles; all ages male and female


Dancers – At least 6 trained dancers are needed. This show requires tap, ballet and pointe.
