Oklahoma! was the first of many successful musical written by the team of composer Richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein II. An innovative musical without stars, “gags”, or chorus girls in flimsy attire, it integrated songs and American style folk dances into a heartfelt story. The musical is based on Lynn Riggs’s 1931 play, Green Grow the Lilacs. Set in Oklahoma Territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906, it tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams. A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancée, Ado Annie. The original Broadway production opened on March 31, 1943. It was a box-office smash and ran for an unprecedented 2,212 performances, later enjoying award-winning revivals, national tours, foreign productions and an Academy Award-winning 1955 film adaptation. It has long been a popular choice for school and community productions. Rodgers and Hammerstein won a special Pulitzer Prize for Oklahoma! in 1944. [less-]

Lucid Dreamscapes will amaze audiences as they fly warp-speed through one-of-a-kind animated worlds. From the work of pioneering multimedia artist J-Walt, this digital live performance utilizes the latest in interactive computer graphics techniques to bring paintings to life. The result is an improvised real-time immersive animated environment that unfolds before an audience. The artwork incorporates elements of animation, theater, dance, painting, sculpture, music, architecture, and interactive art. J-Walt is a performer, interactive designer, filmmaker, graphic artist, and composer. For 25 years, he has been at the forefront of interactive art and computer performance, expanding the uses of computer animation into unchartered territories. He is an award-winning pioneer of computer-generated puppetry. In March of 2006, he won a Technical Academy Award for his development of a real-time pre-visualization system. This is a live performance presentation for entertainment only not an astronomy lecture or show. The minimum age recommended for this performance is 8 years and above. [less-]

Oklahoma! was the first of many successful musical written by the team of composer Richard Rodgers and librettist Oscar Hammerstein II. An innovative musical without stars, “gags”, or chorus girls in flimsy attire, it integrated songs and American style folk dances into a heartfelt story. The musical is based on Lynn Riggs’s 1931 play, Green Grow the Lilacs. Set in Oklahoma Territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906, it tells the story of cowboy Curly McLain and his romance with farm girl Laurey Williams. A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancée, Ado Annie. The original Broadway production opened on March 31, 1943. It was a box-office smash and ran for an unprecedented 2,212 performances, later enjoying award-winning revivals, national tours, foreign productions and an Academy Award-winning 1955 film adaptation. It has long been a popular choice for school and community productions. Rodgers and Hammerstein won a special Pulitzer Prize for Oklahoma! in 1944. [less-]

Hector Armienta’s adaptation of the tale, told by a pair of mischievous rabbits, begins with a young coyote named Scrawny who is learning how to read. When his cousin Loco discovers what Scrawny is up to (no decent coyote would ever learn such a thing), he makes it his mission to set Scrawny on the “right path.” The series of misadventures that follows, all thanks to Loco and his ignorance, only serves to show Scrawny how valuable education truly is.
