The Academy of Music Theatre’s Academy Youth Production presents Getting to Know Rodgers & Hammersteins’ Oklahoma! on March 10 & 11, 2022, directed by Susan Dillard with Assistant Director and Choreographer, Elizabeth Tobey.

In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly, a cowboy, and Laurey, a farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination and the promise of a new land. In this adaptation for pre-high school students, the content has been edited to better suit younger attention spans, but all the elements that make this show a classic remain.
This is the tenth annual Academy Youth Productions show. Past shows include: Annie Jr., Into the Woods Jr.,Fame Jr., Willie Wonka Jr., Camp Rock, The Phantom Tollbooth Jr., The Music Man Jr.,Singin’ in the Rain, Jr., and last year’s James and the Giant Peach Jr. Academy Youth Productions are performed by area youth ages 9-15, with full staging, professional lighting and sound, costumes and sets.

Oklahoma! will run Thursday, March 10, 2022 at 6:30pm and Friday, March 11, 2022 at 6:30pm. Tickets are $10 (plus applicable fees). Tickets can be purchased by calling or visiting the Academy of Music Box Office Tuesday- Friday 3:00PM-6:00PM or at 413-584-9032 ext.105. Tickets can also be purchased online here
