West End and international musical theatre star Marti Webb and runner-up in the BBC's Your Country Needs You Mark Evans headline a brand new tour of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!.

One of the most popular and enduring musicals in history, Oklahoma! comes to Leeds from Tuesday to Saturday, April 20 to 24.

From the producers of hugely successful touring hits including South Pacific, 42nd Street, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, this new revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! is staged by the critically acclaimed creative team behind their record-breaking tour of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s South Pacific.

Oklahoma! is more than a hit. It was the first real phenomenon in modern musical theatre history. Smashing all Broadway box office records when it opened in 1943, it was the first collaboration between Rodgers and Hammerstein, the legendary team who went on to create Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music.

Set on America’s Western Frontier, against a background of conflict between farmers and cattlemen, Oklahoma! perfectly integrates song, dance and story to tell the tale of farm girl Laurey and the two rivals for her affections, happy go-lucky cowboy Curly and the sinister farmhand Jud.

Marti Webb (Aunt Eller) is one of Britain’s most popular leading ladies, whose extensive West End credits include Blood Brothers, Tell Me on a Sunday, Song & Dance, Evita, Cats and Thoroughly Modern Millie, to name only a few.

Mark Evans (Curly) is best known as the runner-up in the BBC’s Your Country Needs You, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s search for a singer to represent Britain in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Famously, Oklahoma! opens with Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin and contains a sumptuous and rousing score full of wonderful songs, such as The Surrey with the Fringe on Top, People Will Say We’re in Love, Many a New Day and the final rousing chorus of Oklahoma!

Tickets range from £11.50 to £31 with discounts available. Call the box office on 0844 848 2703 or book online at leedsgrandtheatre.com.
