Don't Miss: 'Oklahoma!' is O.K. at U-M

David Baum and Toni Trucks in the Musical Theatre Department's production of "Oklahoma!", April 10-13 at the Power Center.

The School of Music's Musical Theatre Department presents the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "Oklahoma!" 8 p.m. April 10-12, and 2 p.m. April 13 at the Power Center for the Performing Arts. Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, "Oklahoma!" is directed by Musical Theatre Department faculty member Linda Goodrich.

Tickets are sold out for the April 12-13 performances, but are available April 10-11. Ticket prices are $20 and $15 for the general public, $8 for students with ID. Tickets are available at the Michigan League ticket office or by phone at (734) 764-2538.

The first musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, "Oklahoma!" premiered in 1943 at the height of U.S. involvement in World War II. At its most straightforward, the musical is escapist fun: the cheery courtship story of farm girl Laurey and cowboy Curly. Audiences also have been drawn to the show for its nationalistic spirit.
