The stage adaptation of Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel has become a classic in its own right. Scout and her brother Jem are simply going about the business of growing up when their father, Atticus Finch, takes a case defending a black man charged with a violent crime. The case causes an uproar in the small Alabama town, and changes everything Scout thinks she knows.

It's 1935 and racial tensions are high in Maycomb, Alabama. Nonetheless, young Jean Louise Finch -- or Scout, as she is fondly called -- manages to live a rather carefree, privileged existence, insulated from issues of race. All that changes when Scout watches her father, Atticus Finch, defend an innocent man, Tom Robinson, against a potential death sentence, which looms threateningly against him because of prejudice due to race. Scout begins to realize that just because society portrays something as being true doesn't mean that it is a fact. With the help of Atticus and her older brother Jem, Scout learns that "growing up" means doing what is right, even when it comes at great cost. To Kill a Mockingbird is an American classic about the power of childhood innocence, morality, and love.

Set in Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a andsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century, the high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys rovides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant Oklahoma!
