Oklahoma! (June 2003)
Aberdeen Arts Centre
Oklahoma! is one of the world's most popular musicals. Written by the brilliant partnership of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Oklahoma! is based on the book by Lynn Riggs called "Green Grow the Lilacs" and boasts one of the greatest and best-loved musical scores of all time.
Oklahoma! was the first musical Rodgers & Hammerstein wrote together and was also the first of a new genre, the musical play. From the enchanting opening of 'Oh, What a Beautiful Morning' through the many wonderful songs, such as 'I Cain't Say No', 'People Will Say We're In Love', 'The Farmer and The Cowman' to the rousing title song itself, Oklahoma! is a theatrical treat for the entire family.
