The Theatre Under the Stars 50th Anniversary Season opens with a timeless classic, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! This landmark production will be an artistic collaboration with Houston Ballet. “This historic collaboration between Theatre Under The Stars and Houston Ballet harkens back to the beginnings of musical theatre itself – the collaboration of all art forms including dance. To honor our 50th Anniversary season, and the 75th Anniversary of Oklahoma!, perhaps the most important show in the musical theatre canon,” said Dan Knechtges, Artistic Director of Theatre Under the Stars. When Oklahoma! premiered in 1943, it was the Broadway choreographic debut of Agnes DeMille who created rousing, funny, and beautiful dances including a show stopping dream ballet that lifted the show into new territory.
