Weekday Matinee Series - Classic Movies and Musicals


Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 08 October 2015

Winner of two Academy Awards including Best Music, Scoring of a Musical Picture and Best Sound, Recording (Fred Hynes), Oklahoma! received a rave review from the New York Times and was voted a “New York Times Critics Pick”. In 2007, Oklahoma! was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

Set in the Oklahoma Territory in the early 1900’s, this joyous celebration of frontier life is a story of tender romance and dangerous passion. Gordon MacRae is Curly, a sunny, good-natured ranch hand, and Shirley Jones is Laurey Williams, the farmer’s daughter he loves. Rod Steiger is the menacing Jud, who tries to come between them. The first Rodgers and Hammerstein collaboration, this Academy Award® winner for Best Score features the classic songs Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,The Surrey With The Fringe On Top and People Will Say We’re In Love.
