August 15th, 2019 - Chichester Festival Theatre "Oklahoma" & Supper

For some time, we have been trying to work out a way of organising a trip to Chichester Festival Theatre but the timing has never worked out until now.

We are very pleased to announce that we have secured 50 tickets to see the matinee performance of Oklahoma! the musical, which will be followed by a two-course supper in The Brasserie beside the theatre.

With its glorious score and spirit of exuberant optimism Oklahoma! is the American musical by which all others are judged. Rodgers and Hammerstein broke new ground in perfectly integrating music and dance to tell a story whose darker undercurrents never overwhelm its rapturous vitality.

Among the unforgettable songs are “Oh What a Beautiful Mornin”, “The Surrey with The Fringe on Top” and the show stopper “Oklahoma!”

We aim to arrive in Chichester by 1 p.m., which will allow time for you to purchase refreshments and/or a light snack before the afternoon performance. Please select from the post-show supper menu below:
