For a limited time only, you can experience Oklahoma in Solvang—the musical that is! Opening this Friday, August 1, 2014 at the wondrous outdoor Solvang Festival Theater (420 Second Street), get your tickets now for the PCPA Theaterfest performance of this classic show running through Sunday, August 24, 2014. Originally staged on Broadway in 1943, this play was Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first and most innovative collaboration and originally staged on Broadway in 1943. It portrays a timeless love story (farm girl and cowboy) set in the Oklahoma Territory in 1906.
If you’re like me, you’ll be humming “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” and the title track “Oklahoma!” long after you’ve left your seat! I think there’s something magical about seeing professional theater productions in Solvang every summer. I highly recommend you pack a picnic from a local deli or take-out from one of our restaurants; then enjoy in the newly revamped theater courtyard before the show (gates open at 7:00 p.m.) You can buy glasses of local wines or famous Snickerdoodle cookies and coffee from the snack bar–then sit back and enjoy your evening with stars in the sky and on the stage! http://www.pcpa.org/plays/plays/oklahoma.html
