THE Lochgelly Centre is home to a special presentation by Youth Music Theatre Scotland this week.

YMTS presents Oklahoma at the Centre on Friday and Saturday nights and there is a matinee on Saturday afternoon.
The first collaboration of famed partners Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, Oklahoma! set the American musical theatre standard and YMTS is delighted to be able to stage it in Lochgelly.

Set in Western Indian Territory just after the turn of the 20th Century, the spirited rivalry between the local farmers and cowboys provides the backdrop for the love story between Curly, a handsome cowboy, and Laurey, a beautiful farm girl.

The road to true love is anything but smooth, but there is no doubt that these two romantics will succeed in making a life together.

As the road to romance and the road to statehood converge, Curly and Laurey are poised to spend their new life together in a brand new state: O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A – OKLAHOMA!
