Event Description

Getting To Know... Oklahoma! is part of the Getting To Know... series: musicals adapted specifically for youth performers. In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger attention spans, but all the elements that make this show a classic remain.
Rodgers and 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.

Tickets are $20. Seating is general admission. The Hanover Theatre currently requires all audience members to wear masks. Please contact the box office at 877.571.SHOW (7469) for more information.
