The Perfect Antidote
Are you looking for something fun and familiar that is taking place close to home? How about beautiful music and a good story that may take you down memory lane?
If either of these things interest you, be sure to see Rodger and Hammerstein's Oklahoma presented by the Staples Players. Performances are scheduled for November 9th, 10th, 15th, 16th and 17th at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 11th at 4:00 p.m at Staples High School.
This show, which was based Lynn Riggs' play Green Grow The Lilacs, opened on Broadway on March 31, 1943 and ran for 2,212 performances. It successfully related the story via music, dance and lyrics and was the first collaboration between Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein II. This show demonstrated the prowess of Agnes de Mille's choreography and later won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1944.
