The Knights Of The Square Stage are proud to present...

Based on "Green Grow The Lilacs" by Lynn Riggs, "Oklahoma!" is the story of Laurey, a headstrong farmgirl who'll do whatever it takes to avoid willingly falling into the arms of Curly, a handsome cowboy. She'll even go to the box social with Jud, her dark-hearted farmhand. Featuring an amusing cast of characters including cowboy Will Parker, his ditzy fiancé, Ado Annie, Laurey's strong-willed caregiver, Aunt Eller, and the devious peddler man, Ali Hakim, "Oklahoma!" is sure to be knee-slappin' fun for the whole family.
