Oklahoma! at the Forum

A brand new revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical descends on the Millennium Forum from Tuesday 16th to Saturday 20th November.

Starring Marti Webb and Mark Evans, it is set on America’s Western Frontier, against a background of conflict between farmers and cattlemen, Oklahoma! perfectly integrates song, dance and story to tell the tale of farm girl Laurey and the two rivals for her affections, happy go-lucky cowboy Curly and the sinister farm hand Jud.

Famously, the show opens with ‘Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’ and contains a sumptuous and rousing score full of wonderful songs such as ‘The Surrey with The Fringe on Top’, ‘People Will Say We’re in Love’, ‘Many a New Day’, ‘I Cain’t Say No’, and the final rousing chorus of ‘Oklahoma’ - as the music soars the audience is carried along on the emotional journey of one of the most famous love stories in musical history.

The show stars one of Britain’s most popular leading ladies Marti Webb as Aunt Eller (Blood Brothers, Tell me On A Sunday, Evita, Cats), and Mark Evans, as Curly, (runner up in the BBC’s Your Country Needs You).

Oklahoma performs at the Millennium Forum from Tues 16th to Sat 20th November. Tickets are now available from the Box Office. Telephone 71 264455 or visit www.millenniumforum.co.uk for tickets.
