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!
The GAOS Production
The GAOS Really Youthful Group is a chance for young performers, aged between 9 and 19, to develop their skills on and off-stage. The shows that these talented youngsters accomplish on a yearly basis are run by the young adults of the society (i.e. from 18 to 20 years of age). The youth are in charge of everything that goes on, be it on-stage (acting, singing, dancing) and off-stage (directing, choreographing, lighting, sound, front of house, etc.). Our aim is to inspire these amazing youngsters to continue in musical theatre.
The Really Youthful experience is very useful for all of the youth involved in the show, as it helps them to develop various skills that can be very useful for their future lives.
