The Flower Mound High School Performing Arts Department presents the classic musical Oklahoma! at the FMHS Jack & Donna Clark Auditorium, 3411 Peters Colony Road, Flower Mound. Performances run January 26th, 27th, and 28th at 7:00 p.m. and January 29th at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are available beginning January 9th at Tickets are all reserved and are $10, $15 and $20.  In-N-Out Burger will have a truck on campus starting at 5:00 pm for the Saturday show only.  Tickets for food must be purchased online when buying show tickets, and sales of meal tickets end on January 24.

 Oklahoma! is based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs, with book and lyrics written by Oscar Hammerstein II and music written by Richard Rodgers.  Set in Western Indian Territory not long after the turn of the century, Oklahoma! is the story of two headstrong romantics and their bumpy journey to love.

Scott Taylor, head of the FMHS Theatre Department, said, “We hope to bring a slightly updated Oklahoma! to our audiences. Most productions focus entirely on the relationship between the leading man and woman. What we are hoping to show is the creation of a community. A group of forward thinking, yet different thinking people coming together for the goodness of the new state of Oklahoma! I feel it is something being felt throughout our country today. And so the themes of this show are still very relevant today.”

The FMHS Choir, Orchestra, Band and Theatre Arts fine arts departments collaborate on the annual musical production that features a cast and crew of more than 185 people.  Lead roles are played by Simone Brazzini as Aunt Eller, Chandler Sinks as Curly, Rachel Ditzig as Laurey, Chad Sinks as Will Parker, Matthew Spretz as Jud Fry, Bailee Goodman as Ado Annie, Taylor Egan as Ali Hakim, and Emily Weems as Gertie Cummings.
