Oklahoma Costumes

Everyone loves Oklahoma the first musical written by Rodgers and Hammerstein based on the play by Lynn Riggs, ‘Green grow the Lilacs’.

Set in a town called Claremore in Oklahoma territory the tale is of the romance between Cowboy Curly McClean and farm girl Laurey Williams, and Will Parker and Ado Annie.

This is a great opportunity for the cast to wear lots of cowboy style clothes, checked shirts, leather jackets, stetsons, dungarees, cowboy boots and of course gun belts and spurs.

The girls have long dresses in keeping with the period in gingham checks, petticoats and bonnets, with some lovely posh frocks and wedding dresses for the final scene.

Other characters include Jud Fry, the hired farm hand, Aunt Eller, Ali Hakim a Persian peddler and Gertie the farm girl.

For an excellent selection of gingham wear and extensive choice of leather waistcoats, chaps and wild western clothing, call us at Admiral Costumes for more information and a costume list.
