To conclude our 2013 season, The Summer Place is proud to present Oklahoma!, the first collaboration of Rodgers and Hammerstein, on its 70th anniversary.

Seventy years ago Rodgers and Hammerstein revolutionized the musical theatre with this seamless use of music, lyrics and dance to tell the story of Laurey, Curley, and Jud Fry as the Oklahoma territory is on the brink of statehood.
