The Lerner Stage will become the Western Indian territory just after the turn of the century. The high-spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the colorful background against which Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a winsome farm girl, play out their love story. Although the road to true love never runs smooth, with these two headstrong romantics holding the reins, love's journey is as bumpy as a surrey ride down a country road. That they will succeed in making a new life together we have no doubt, and that this new life will begin in a brand-new state provides the ultimate climax to the triumphant OKLAHOMA Jr!

Our version of the Nutcracker does not use the traditional Tchaikovsky score, yet the storylines are similar. In our story, Klara is a homeless girl living in today's busy world with the hustle and bustle of people preparing for the holiday season. The Nutcracker transforms into a prince and takes Klara to visit the Sugar Plum Fairy and her kingdom. Along the way there are dancing snowflakes, graceful fairies, and waltzing flowers. There are dances from China, Russia, Spain, Turkey, and our Native America. Klara finds her family with the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Prince. In the end, Klara teaches us that all people are special, no matter if they seem different or unimportant.
