CHICHESTER FESTIVAL THEATRE 'OKLAHOMA'
Saturday 07 September 2019

VISIT TO CHICHESTER FESTIVAL THEATRE TO SEE THE MUSICAL 'OKLAHOMA'  Matinee performance at 14.30
Sold Out - waiting list only

With its glorious score and spirit of exuberant optimism ‘Oklahoma’ is the American musical by which all others are judged.  Handsome cowboy Curley is head over heels over farm owner Laurey, but lonely ranch hand Jud Fry has is sinister sights on her too.  And Laurey is not the only girl with cowboy problems.  Ado Annie’s beau is back from chasing steers in Kansas City where he won the fifty dollars which her father insists Will must have to marry her. However she is not so easily bought. Luckily Aunt Ellen is at hand to use her influence on this spirited gang of ranchers and bronco busters, and all works out well in the end.  This musical with its memorable tunes and fabulous sets is not to be missed.

We shall arrive in time for you to wander around Chichester, but for eating at the Theatre there is The Brasserie on the ground floor of the Minerva Theatre which is open for relaxed dining using a contemporary menu. Upstairs at the Minerva there is a grill which provides main meals and lighter food options.  Booking is necessary for both these options.  In the main theatre the Café provides snacks such as sandwiches and soups etc., with coffee and drinks, and there is also outside seating.
