LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - ‘Oklahoma!’ has arrived in West Texas, providing performances throughout the first few weeks of August!

Every performance begins at 8 p.m.

Tickets cost $25 per person and can be purchased here.

Moonlight Musicals provides the following description of the performance:

Hold onto your cowboy hats! This year marks the 80th anniversary of Oklahoma! Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, setting the standards and rules of modern musical theatre. In a Western territory just after the turn of the 20th century, a high-spirited rivalry between local farmers and cowboys provides a colorful background for Curly, a charming cowboy, and Laurey, a feisty farm girl, to play out their love story. Their romantic journey, as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road, contrasts with the comic exploits of brazen Ado Annie and hapless Will Parker in a musical adventure embracing hope, determination and the promise of a new land.
