The 75th Anniversary of the beloved musical
The first collaboration by the legendary team of Rodgers and Hammerstein became a landmark musical for its rollicking music and stunning dance numbers, and this joyful presentation will solidify why it has stood the test of time.
Directed by Theatre Company Artistic Director Chris Coleman in his Denver debut and choreographed by Dominique Kelley (dancer in La La Land and Bring in ‘Da Noise, Bring in ‘Da Funk), our production will showcase an overlooked piece of American history as one small community stakes its claim on a place that is full of hope.
The musical Oklahoma! takes place in 1906, shortly before Oklahoma Territory became Oklahoma State. While the history of westward expansion leading up to statehood may be familiar, African American history in the Territory is far less commonly known.
