Heath Ledger Theatre

A wild take on Rodgers & Hammerstein's wild west musical

  • "Joyous and hilarious”

    The West Australian

  • "A great deal of fun!"

    Limelight

Oklahoma

Shotgun rides, shotgun weddings, and shotgun justice. No local government, no electricity, no motor cars. Tensions simmer between the cowmen who have long worked the territory, and the increasing number of eastern farmers staking new claims to land which disrupts the cowmen’s trade. Meanwhile, farm girl Laurey works to maintain her independence while being courted by both Curly and Jud - two very different kinds of suitor.

Directed by Richard Carroll (Calamity Jane, The Show Goes On, Once), the production features timeless hits such as Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’, People Will Say We’re in Love, and The Surrey With the Fringe on Top.

In this production we are delighted and proud to present the music in the style of its bluegrass, country, square-dance roots, and for West Australian audiences to enjoy an exhilarating experience in-the-round* right in the heart of the action on the Heath Ledger Theatre stage.
