Join Lubbock Moonlight Musicals this July as they present the history-rich musical “1776” in the stunning outdoor setting of the Moonlight Musicals Amphitheatre in Lubbock’s Mackenzie Park. Making use of Texas Tech and community talent, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals always strives to create high quality, family-friendly entertainment that all ages may enjoy. Attendants to “1776” shall witness the birth of a nation as America’s founding fathers struggle to craft the American Declaration of Independence. This pivotal event in the pages of American history blazes to vivid life as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, irritable, charming and ultimately noble figures determined to do the right thing for their fledgling nation.
“1776” is a humorous, insightful, and historic musical that follows John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson as they attempt to persuade the members of the second Continental Congress to vote for and sign the Declaration of Independence. Step back to the summer of 1776 and a nation ready to declare independence…if only our founding fathers can agree to do it!

Come out to the Moonlight Musicals Amphitheatre (previously the Wells Fargo Amphitheatre) in the beautiful outdoor setting of Lubbock’s Mackenzie Park this August as Lubbock Moonlight Musicals presents their 10th anniversary production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Oklahoma!” Music by RICHARD RODGERS. Book and Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II. Making use of Texas Tech and local talent, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals always strives to create high quality, family-friendly entertainment that all ages may enjoy. “Oklahoma!” is a musical masterpiece not to be missed!
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s first collaboration remains, in many ways, their most innovative, having set the standards and established the rules of musical theatre still being followed today. Set in a 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! www.rnh.com
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “OKLAHOMA!” is based on the play “Green Grow the Lilacs” by Lynn Riggs. Original Dances by Agnes de Mille.
