PREVIEW: Oklahoma arrives in Eastbourne

Besi Besemar March 8, 2015

Celebrate America’s pioneering spirit with the original feel-good, boot-stomping musical Oklahoma! which will ride into Eastbourne’s Congress Theatre on Tuesday, April 7.


AS REFRESHING and stirring as the day it was written over 70 years ago, this popular Rodgers and Hammerstein musical features much-loved tunes and boot-stomping dances such as I’m Just a Girl Who Can’t Say No, Surrey With a Fringe on Top, Kansas City, People Will Say We’re in Love and, of course, the rousing title song itself!

From the minute the rugged cowboy Curly steps on to the stage singing Oh, What a Beautiful Morning we know that all will be right with the world.

Head west and follow Curly and the girl of his dreams, Laurey, as they travel down love’s highway on an extremely bumpy surrey ride.

OklahomaThis brand new production from the award-winning producers of The King and I and Fiddler on the Roof stars Belinda Lang as Aunt Eller, Gary Wilmot as Ali Hakim, Ashley Day as Curly and Charlotte Wakefield as Laurey, is directed by Rachel Kavanaugh and features a large cast and chorus as well as a live orchestra, bringing you romance, excitement and a score filled with sunshine.
