Oklahoma! at UNCG Theatre
Music by Richard Rodgers | Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Scenic Design by Margaret R. Toomey | Lighting Design by John Wolf | Costume Design by Deborah Bell | Music Direction by Dr. William Carroll | Choreography by Rodney Luck
"Conductor William Carroll and director Bryan Conger (in his Master’s thesis production) gave audiences an evening of music, acting and dancing that certainly rivaled the best of the long stage history of Oklahoma!, the play that is said to have defined modern musical theatre."
Words from Bryan
“The play’s main message is that of community. In a modern time of division and social controversy, ‘Oklahoma!’ explores our states’ first moments of pride as we expanded our nation and brought opportunity to people of all origins.”
