The Davis Musical Theatre Company presents Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” from Friday, April 19, to Sunday, May 12.
Shows will begin at 8:15 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2:15 p.m. on Sundays.

This is the 70th anniversary of this show and is Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration. First written and produced in 1943, the show — with its many Broadway revivals — set the standards and established the rules of musical theater still being followed today.

Set in a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. This new love and new life together will begin in a brand-new state that provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant “Oklahoma!”

“Oklahoma!” performances are at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive in East Davis. Tickets are $18 general and $16 for students/seniors (55 and older) and $14 each for groups of 10 or more. There is a $2 facility fee per ticket. Tickets may be purchased online at dmtc.org or by calling 530-756-3682.

The show is directed and choreographed by DMTC co-producer Jan Isaacson, with musical direction by Chris Congdon.
