The wind will come sweeping down the A&M Consolidated High School stage when the choir presents Oklahoma! today through Sunday.

With music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, the musical integrated story and songs in a way that no previous production had. Instead of performers suddenly breaking out in song for no reason, the music of Oklahoma! expresses the feelings of the characters and advances the plot.

Curly, the area’s top cowhand, falls in love with Laurey, the area’s most beautiful young woman. But Laurey is playing hard to get. Besides, Laurey has another suitor, menacing Jud Fry.

Love, in fact, is bustin’ out all over. Will Parker plans on marrying Ado Annie, a girl who “cain’t say no.” But Annie thinks she might run away with Ali Hakeem, a traveling peddler.

Oklahoma! is directed by Travis Angel.

Performances are at 7 p.m. today and Friday and 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in the high school auditorium on Harvey Mitchell Parkway and Welsh Street in College Station.

Tickets are $5 for children and $8 for adults in advance at the school and $7 for children and $10 for adults at the door.
