Naperville's Summer Place Theatre will conclude its 2013 season with a production of "Oklahoma!" the first collaboration of Rodgers and Hammerstein, on its 70th anniversary.

Seventy years ago, Rodgers and Hammerstein revolutionized the musical theater with this seamless use of music, lyrics and dance to tell the story of Laurey, Curley, and Jud Fry as the Oklahoma territory is on the brink of statehood.

With more than 40 performers, the cast sings some of the most well-known musical theater songs: "Oklahoma!" "Oh What a Beautiful Morning" and "People Will Say We're in Love."

Performances begin at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays, July 26 to Aug. 4, in the auditorium at Naperville Central High School, 440 W. Aurora Ave.

Tickets are $17 for adults, $14 for students and seniors, and $10 for ages 5 to 12.
