April 21 - May 13
Matinees April 29 & May 6
Oh, what a beautiful evening at the Heritage Community Theater! Presenting: OKLAHOMA! running from April 21- May 13 there is something for everyone: romance, comedy, drama and dance.
The wide open spaces of the Oklahoma frontier are dwarfed by the drama and romance of Roger and Hammerstein's first collaboration. Set in 1906 on the plains of Oklahoma, Rodgers and Hammerstein tweeze out a story filled with drama and romance, song and dance that has delighted theatergoers for over 70 years. The classic themes of love and changing times still strike a chord with audiences today.
Spend the evening with Aunt Eller, relaxing and taking in the twists and travails of romance and a changing world. Under Aunt Eller's watchful eye young lovers experience a bumpy ride on the way to true love, and what an adventure it is. Laurie and Curly can’t ever seem to see eye to eye and never miss the opportunity to enjoy a joke at the other’s expense. Ado Annie, on the other hand has a different problem, she can’t seem to stop falling in love much to her fiance, Will Parker’s chagrin. In the end, it all wraps up like your evening: happily.
