Love story on stage

December 4, 2013


OKLAHOMA! the musical love story is coming to Carmarthenshire. Regarded as the first fully integrated musical play, Rodgers and Hammerstein's show has been a favourite of theatre-goers since it opened on Broadway in 1943.

Now, for three nights only, Llanelli Musical Players are bringing this romance to life at Llanelli's Ffwrnes Theatre. Producer Joy Thomas said that the company had decided to do something more traditional in choosing Oklahoma!

"We thought it would suit our company really well," she said.

Set in the USA, at the turn of the 20th century, Oklahoma! tells the story of the romantic rivalry between cowboys and farmers, who are trying to get the girl. Oklahoma! runs at Ffwrnes from Thursday, December 12, to Saturday, December 14, at 7:30pm.
