TSB Theatre - TSB Showplace

Since its premiere on Broadway in 1943, Oklahoma! has been a box-office smash and is now considered the birth of the modern musical. Its multi-million dollar set and costumes are certain to have audiences throughout New Zealand reliving their youth as well as thrilling new ones with a story that has become one of the greatest classics of all time.
Set in Midwest America in 1906, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colourful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant Oklahoma!

Uber talented romantic leads Cameron Douglas (Curly) and Tizane McEvoy (Laurey) will be supported by the highly versatile and experienced entertainer Ali Harper in the role of Ado Annie -- one of the greatest comedy roles in musical theatre. Veterans of the New Zealand stage, Paul Barrett and Geraldine Brophy, will play Ado's Father, Andrew Carnes and Anne Eller.
