I had the distinct pleasure of going to see our local Sierra Repertory Theatre's production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahoma!" at the Historic Fallon House Theatre in Columbia on Wednesday.
I don't know who designed their program cover and poster, but it looks pretty great, too.
I love Rodgers and Hammerstein's music so much, now I am going to have to put on my old movie soundtrack LP and listen to Shirley Jones and Gordon MacRae - and look around and see if I can find my VHS of the movie.....at least, I THINK I have it somewhere!
I have just about every other musical under the sun.
We Gold Country Girls were lucky enough to see Gordon MacRae back in 1977 as Ben Rumson in "Paint Your Wagon" at the Music Circus in Sacramento. Sadly, he passed away in 1986.
But, at least, the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein lives on, not only in the films, but also on stage regularly as live theatre groups stage new productions of their classic musicals year after year, for all of us to enjoy forever.
