AUDIENCES can expect memorable songs and big dance numbers as Musical Theatre Salisbury (MTS) present Oklahoma.

The show runs at City Hall, Salisbury until Saturday (December 2).

The production is directed by Stuart Tayler in his first role as director for MTS.

The first collaboration of famed partners Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Oklahoma is set in the Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the 20th Century.

The spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop for the love story between Curly (Dave Simmons), a handsome cowboy, and Laurey (Emma Clammer), a beautiful farm girl. Jud Fry (Angel Cascarino), a lonely disturbed farm hand has also fallen for Laurey. Woven into this plot is the life of Ado Annie (Emily Caley), one of Laurey’s friends who’s boyfriend Will (Will Laing) has just returned from an exciting trip to Kansas.

While he was away she has fallen for Ali Hakim (Robert Preedy) a peddler, who has not fallen for her.

Overseeing everyone is Aunt Eller (Sue Goddard) who with her wisdom ensures they all stay on track.

The road to true love is anything but smooth, but there is no doubt that these two romantics will succeed in making a life together.

The musical has colourful sets, wonderful costumes and includes the songs, Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin, Oklahoma and I Cain’t Say No! amongst many others.

Performances start at 7.30pm and there will be a matinee show at 2.30pm on Saturday.
