This past weekend I had the opportunity to enjoy the time-honored summer tradition of attending musical productions at the local college. We tapped our toes, or boots, rather, to Oklahoma!, which first opened on Broadway 70 years ago. This timeless musical was voted “would most like to see” last year by local theater audiences.
The production at Cabrillo Stage did not disappoint. The big prairie scenery provided the perfect backdrop for big songs. I particularly liked the square dance number about the rivalry between the farmers and the cowmen. In the end, the fighting between the farmers and the ranchers was broken up and all agreed, “Territory folks should stick together, territory folks should all be pals.”
