Unique and Spectacular Open Air Musical, Oklahoma 3rd to 7th June, Boherlahan

oklahomaOur Open-Air presentation of the musical “Oklahoma” will be staged from 3rd to 7th June 2010. This is a unique event which has never been attempted in Ireland before and may never be repeated. Against the background of the recession which daily threatens to defeat our spirits, the people here have come together to be creative, to have fun and to celebrate community spirit.

The performance takes place on the wide open spaces of our local GAA field, featuring a cast of almost one hundred adults, together with children from the schools. The principal characters, mounted on actual horses and carriages as they perform their roles, and the entire stadium, transformed into an appropriate setting, will transport the audience back in time. There will be numerous side attractions and displays including vintage machinery

and livestock.

On the Saturday 5th June, there’s a Gala Western Dress Night, when the whole audience is invited to come to the show dressed in western style. The Festival Club will also be open on each night of the show. Preparations are ongoing since before Christmas under producer Peter Alley. A veteran of St Oliver’s Musical Society, Dundrum, he was responsible for the first horse on stage in an “Oklahoma” nearly thirty years ago. Above all he promises us a real new “Oklahoma”, full of attractions and drama, and huge surprises never seen before. Highly professional standards of production are maintained throughout and the level of participation and the collective sense of excitement make us confident that this show will be truly memorable. A flavour of the event can be seen on FaceBook at “Boherlahan Open-Air Oklahoma”.
