Zilker Summer Musical 2014: Oklahoma!


Zilker Theatre Productions has announced that the 2014 Zilker Summer Musical will be Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!

Oklahoma! will open on July 11, 2014 and run through August 16, 2014, Thursday – Sunday evenings, starting at approximately 8:30 p.m. 

Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, this high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful backdrop for Oklahoma!, one of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most cherished collaborations.

This beloved musical tells the tale of Laurey Williams and her suitors, Curly McLain and Jud Fry, the spitfire, Ado Annie and her patient beau, Will Parker, and the ever tenacious and optimistic Aunt Eller, and features the timeless Rodgers & Hammerstein classics “Oh What a Beautiful Morning,” “The Surrey with the Fringe On Top,” “I Cain’t Say No,” “People Will Say We’re in Love,” and of course, the title song, “Oklahoma!”.

This landmark, Pulitzer Prize winning musical, takes us back to a time when the farmer and the cowman struggle to be friends, traveling salesmen hock their wares, and a trip to Kansas City is the hottest story in town.

Zilker Summer Musical productions are free and open to the public. Performances are held at Zilker Hillside Theatre in Zilker Park.
