This was such a high energy performance in all respects. The dancing was first rate - high kicks and jumps, perfect coordination. The voices were beautiful to hear. I am so glad we got to see this.

We laughed and applauded and hooted our way through this outstanding performance. The entire show was A+, but the choreography made us breathless. Thank you, Arena Theater, for giving us a chance to see it after it was sold out last year, and...continued

Wonderful familiar songs energetically performed.
Acting, dancing, musical direction everything was first class and very exciting. The chorus of expert singers and dancers was especially great.

Don't miss this classic. Not only is the acting, singing and dancing superb but I had forgotten just how funny the "book" is and this cast did a great job with the humor as well as the drama. Even though Arena is theater in the round we never...continued

I attended two Gold Star ticket performances of Oklahoma. one with an 89 yr old woman and the next time with my 13 year old grand daughter. BOTH performances were incredibly wonderful and each of my guests were in awe!

It's an excellent production, with wonderful singing and dancing. The only problem was that it was hard to understand the dialogue some of the time.

The production was just as wonderful, energetic, heart-warming, and thrilling as when I saw it last December. The show is a melodic treasure and this production is one to cherish.

This performance of Oklahoma is a crowd pleaser for the entire family. The quality of the singing, dancing, and staging were wonderful. Only on occasion did I have difficulty understanding the spoken words.

The Fichandler seating is in the...continued

This was a great show! After some spectacular shows it was fun to see an old favorite, beautifully done. It captured the symplicity of the times. The audience was all smiles.

Very good production and a fun evening. With the stage in the center of the room you can't really have a bad seat. The use of space by the actors and props is well done, the band was really good, the singing, dancing and acting were completely...continued
