In 2016, we were thrilled to bring the first collaboration between the famed partners Rodgers and Hammerstein to the Ipswich Regent Theatre; Oklahoma!
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.
The Ipswich Regent took home to the society once again in this fantastic production! New cast members met old ones and made friends with all those involved.
With resident Musical Director Mike Wren on hand with Mark Connell directing this show we were in safe hands!
