Kids Commute - OKLAHOMA WEEK!
This week, we'll get ready for Interlochen's upcoming production of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical with story and song!
Interlochen Arts Academy will open its spring musical on May 6, 2022 - a production of the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, "Oklahoma!"
To help us get ready, we'll hear some highlights from the show's story and music.
"Oklahoma!" is based on the 1930 play "Green Grow the Lilacs" by Lynn Riggs. Set in the Oklahoma territory in 1906, the central story surrounds an unresolved crush between cowboy Curly and farm girl Laurey. Will she go to the town picnic (box social) with him, or with farmhand Jud? Tune in and find out!
We'll have an Oklahoma themed Quizlet for you this week, too!
Listen to Kids Commute on Classical IPR Monday through Friday at 7:40 a.m. , 3:20 p.m. or any time at the links below!
