BEARDEN HIGH SCHOOL presents the classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical "OKLAHOMA!"

Event Dates and Times

11/9/2017 - 11/12/2017
Bearden High School, 8352 Kingston Pike, Knoxville, TN 37919
The classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical "OKLAHOMA!" takes to the stage for one weekend only at Bearden High School November 9-12. This was the first of many musical collaborations between these Broadway giants and "OKLAHOMA!" set the standard for musicals - and today "OKLAHOMA!" is as entertaining as when it first opened on Broadway. Set in a Western Indian territory, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful backdrop against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. But the road to true love never runs smooth especially in this new state of "OKLAHOMA!"
