Rodgers and Hammerstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece about a romantic rivalry on the Western frontier boasts a collection of classic songs and a spirit that's made it an enduring favorite. The story of the lovely Laurey and her two determined suitors -- Curly the cowboy and Jud the hired farmhand -- also tackles the class issues between farmers and cattlemen in the rugged landscape of a new state. The show boasts such Broadway favorites as "Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'," "People Will Say We're in Love," "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top" and the exuberant title song. This brilliant first collaboration between Rodgers and Hammerstein set box-office records as it ushered in the golden age of American musical theater. Learn More

Tom Netherton appeared in an outdoor musical pageant The Medora Musical, in Medora, North Dakota. The owners of the show, Harold and Sheila Schafer, arranged for Tom to meet Lawrence Welk in Bismarck, where Tom had the opportunity to sing for him. As a result, Welk invited him to join his musical family at the St. Paul Civic Center a few weeks later, where he found himself facing an audience of 19,000. Tom was so well received at the concert that Welk invited Tom, on stage and in front of everyone, to join his television show. From then on, things moved quickly in Tom’s career.
Tom made his first appearance on The Lawrence Welk Show at Christmas 1973, and performed for over 8 years to audiences of 35-40 million each week. The show went into syndication and it is now seen every week on 270 PBS stations across the country.
