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!
All students age 14-18 will be cast. (An age waiver may be requested for younger students and will be approved on a case by case basis.)
This gripping drama opens in 1691, where Sarah Brooks, who has been tried as a witch, is sentenced to hang, cursing those who would disturb her rest. Now jump to the present: six high school seniors have a graduation party at Heather’s house, which is built on the hill where the condemned witches were buried. Heather goads the others into inviting a new girl, Sarah, to their party. Sarah is the perfect example of the ’trash’ Heather thinks is moving in and ruining the town. Heather insists that Sarah drink a glass of ’Initiation Punch,’ and when Sarah collapses and dies, the joke suddenly stops. To protect their post-graduation dreams, the others decide to throw Sarah’s body down the backyard well and vow never to tell anyone what happened. Eight years later, the group must once again come together. Construction near the well has revealed… nothing. A police detective has told Heather that a woman in a long dress has been seen on her property. Is it Sarah? A chilling tale of suspense with excellent roles for women, this play draws your audience in and doesn’t let go until the unforgettable climax.
