GVSU OPERA THEATRE PRESENTS
Music and Lyrics by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein
Stage Direction by Christopher Carter
Artistic Direction by Dale Schriemer
Rodgers and Hammerstein's first collaboration and, perhaps, most innovative production became a worldwide phenomenon and set the standards and the rules for musical theatre. Amidst a rivalry between cowboys and local farmers, Curly, a handsome, young cowboy, and Laurey, a high-spirited farm girl, play out their story of romance in the American West. The road to true love is always bumpy, but these two independent, headstrong lovers hold the reins of their surrey and succeed, making a new life together in a brand new state — Oklahoma!
Alumni performer/choreographer/director Christopher Carter returns to Grand Valley to direct our production after recently performing Oklahoma! with the Chicago Lyric Opera!
