A production of the classic Hollywood musical Oklahoma! opens at Royal & Derngate in Northampton next week.

The show is a new production from the theatre and Music & Lyrics and will go on to tour the UK and Ireland.

It stars West End favourite Gary Wilmot and Belinda Lang, who was last seen at Royal & Derngate in Ladies in Lavender.

The show was written by Rodgers and Hammerstein and was in fact their first collaboration.

It appeared on Broadway in 1943 and became an Academy Award-winning film in 1955.

And it is full of great songs including Oh What A Beautiful Mornin’, I’m Just A Girl Who Can’t Say No, People Will Say We’re In Love and the title song of course.

Oklahoma! is on the Derngate stage from Thursday to Saturday, February 19 to 28, with evening performances at 7.30pm and matinees at 2.30pm on Wednesday and both Saturdays.

Tickets, priced from £13 to £35, can be booked by calling 01604 624811 or online at
