Holroyd Musical and Dramatic Society's Oklahoma!

THE love story between cowboy Curly McLain and farm girl Laurey Williams will be brought to life in Holroyd Musical and Dramatic Society's performance of Oklahoma!.

Set in Oklahoma in 1906, the Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein musical also follows the romance between cowboy Will Parker and his flirtatious fiancée, Ado Annie.

Director John Brown said the cast are ready to "knock everybody's socks off" when they perform seven shows at the Redgum Centre in Wentworthville from April 4 to 12.

"It's a love story and about the triumph of good over evil," Brown said.

"We are now in the final stages of rehearsal and I know the cast will produce their very best for audiences to enjoy," he said.

"We have professional lighting, sound, sets and a 12-piece orchestra playing all the favourites."

The production features many musical favourites, including Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin', Oklahoma!, I Cain't Say No and many more.

Parramatta actress Olivia Linas plays Ado Annie.

"People often forget, but being an older show, it has a lot of great humour in it," Linas said.

"There's something in the show for everyone.

"Ado Annie is a lot of fun to play. It's almost like I have permission to be a little bit naughty."
