Plot Summary

Set in 1907 in Oklahoma territory, it tells the story of Curly, a strapping young cowman, and his ensuing romance with farmgirl Laurey, who is also pursued by Jud Fry, an intimidating farm hand. A secondary romance unfurls between Farmer Will Parker, and the feisty flirtatious Ado Annie, involving a fling with a sleazy Persian peddler, Ali Hakim. 

Aside from romances and love triangles, it is a very entertaining show full of dancing, singing and classic Rodgers and Hammerstein orchestral wonders.
