Music by Richard Rodgers. Book & Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein. Based on the play "Green Grow the Lilacs" by Lynn Riggs. Original Choreography by Agnes de Mille. Directed by Reginald L. Douglas. On a beautiful morning in 1906 in Oklahoma Territory a group of intrepid pioneers are setting out to forge a new community, and young women and men are setting out to chart their futures. When Oklahoma! opened on Broadway 75 years ago it promptly revolutionized the American musical.

Dorset Theatre Festival, under the leadership of Artistic Director Dina Janis, is excited to announce the addition of AN EVENING WITH NATALIE MERCHANT to the Festival’s 42nd season. A special one-night-only concert at the Dorset Playhouse (104 Cheney Rd, Dorset, VT 05251) on August 4, the event is co-produced with Higher Ground Presents (www.highergroundmusic.com). Two years after 2017’s “Three Decades of Song Tour,” which played mostly large amphitheaters in major markets, this will be a unique opportunity for fans to see the celebrated singer play towns and cities chosen by Merchant herself and not usually included on her tours. She will be joined by her long-time guitarist Erik Della Penna, who has been playing with her for 20 years, performing material from the past 35 years of Merchant’s career. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday April 12 at 10am ET. https://dorsettheatrefestival.org/natalie-merchant
