Footlights, the University of Exeter’s biggest musical theatre society that brought you The Phantom of the Opera (2016), The Producers (2017) and Singin’ in the Rain (2018) are proud to present OKLAHOMA! – an illustrious classic propelled by love, community and integrity.

Based on Lynn Riggs’ Green Grow the Lilacs, this harmonically rich and wildly symphonic blend of ballet, ballad and barn dance is a musical that takes an unblinking look at a community trapped in the American economic and social underclass.
