“When we first opened Oklahoma! last fall, audiences couldn’t get enough of it, and it was difficult to have to turn people away at the box office,” shares Executive Producer Edgar Dobie. “Even though it was playing to an average of 99% capacity each performance, we couldn’t extend to meet demand this winter due to the next incoming show in the Fichandler. However, we’re so pleased to bring it back again this summer.”

Smith adds, “The optimism and drive of the characters exploring a new frontier matched the ambition Arena Stage staff felt as we opened our new theater complex. It was thrilling that audiences shared that enthusiasm and supported our inaugural production in our new home.”
