The rivalry between farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop to the love story of cowboy Curly and farmer’s daughter Lauren and the road to statehood for Oklahoma.  Truly one of the greatest musicals of the 40s and 50s era and since.

Bookham Light Operatic Society is a friendly active society of keen amateurs who put on musical shows in the Fetcham Village Hall and the Nomad Theatre.

‘Rodgers and Hammerstein’ refers to an influential, innovative and successful American musical theatre writing team consisting of composer Richard Rodgers (1902–1979) and lyricist-dramatist Oscar Hammerstein II (1895–1960). They created a string of popular Broadway musicals in the 1940s and 1950s, initiating what is considered the “golden age” of musical theatre. Five of their Broadway shows, Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The King and I and The Sound of Music, were outstanding successes, as was the television broadcast of Cinderella.

The most recent production from The Nomads with Bookham Light Operatic Society was The Pajama Game in May 2016.

Jon Fox from NODA had this to say about it:

A very strong principal cast backed by a highly enthusiastic and energetic chorus made for a very high performance standard.
