Porthouse is going to Oklahoma in 2018!

July 26 - August 12, 2018

Based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs
Original Dances by Agnes de Mille

Set in 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, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a beautiful farm girl. 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. As the road to romance and the road to statehood converge, Curly and Laurey are poised to spend their new life together in a brand new state: O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A - OKLAHOMA!

OKLAHOMA! Is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals: www.rnh.com
