Center Stage Theatre Presents Oklahoma!
Center Stage Theatre in Shelton will present “Oklahoma!” February 16-25.
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, setting the standards and rules of modern musical theatre. In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly, a charming cowboy, and Laurey, a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination and the promise of a new land.
This beloved classic was revived on Broadway several years ago with a contemporary, updated rendition of the classic story. This production will be similarly reimagined, including a modified seating chart which includes both regular theater seating and VIP Picnic Table Seats putting you in the middle of the action with a Box Social picnic treat served by the cast during intermission.
Tickets range from $18-$50. View the full schedule and purchase tickets at centerstageshelton.org.
