The popular musical will run at the Forum Studio Theatre from August 11-20 at 7.30pm with a matinee performance on Saturday, August 20 at 2.30pm.
The show, with musical direction by Simon Phillips, will be staged in a concert style setting and directed by Steve Davies.
Steve said: “This specially devised concert version of Oklahoma! suits the intimate atmosphere of the studio theatre perfectly and enables us to bring the show to Chester in a unique way. It was the first Rodgers and Hammerstein collaboration and is one of the most produced musicals in America. We have a very talented and experienced cast and crew on board and we are looking foward to giving the show our special ‘Tip Top twist.’
Oklahoma! is based on the book Green Grow The Lilacs by Lynn Riggs.
Laurey, a headstrong farm girl doesn’t want to fall willingly into the arms of the handsome cowboy, Curly.
In her attempts to avoid him, she ends up turning to the dark-hearted farm hand, Jud Fry, who wants to do more than take her to the dance.
The show features many of Rogers and Hammerstein’s best loved songs including Oh What a Beautiful Mornin’, The Surrey with the Fringe on Top and People Will Say We’re in Love.
Tickets are £11 full price, £9 concessions, £7 for certain performances with special offers available for under 30s.
