In 2018 Fight With a Stick turned its gaze on the iconic musical Oklahoma! Boasting 800 productions a year, Oklahoma’s cultural legacy refuses to die. Fight With a Stick’s company of theatre artists, composers, video artists and choreographers dives deep into the sensory world that made the musical an instrument of American national identity building, but also an inspiration to generations of musical theatre fans. As always the company messes with states of perception to draw out what is lurking in the background — the cornfield, the sky, the sounds of the landscape.

Oh What a Beautiful Morning! is created collaboratively by Alex Lazaridis Ferguson (Director), Josh Hite (Video Creation), Jordan Lloyd Watkins (Video Designer & Technologist) James Maxwell (Sound Designer), Paula Viitanen Aldazosa (Technical Director, Set Designer & Builder), Sharon Lau (Lighting Designer), Laura Coons (Stage Manager), Sean Marshall Junior (Performer), Hayley Gawthrop (Performer), Logan Rhys Hallwas (Performer), Hin Hilary Leung (Performer), Makailla Pallyaguru (Performer), Delia Brett (Choreographer), Mia Amir (Dramaturg).


“Oh What a Beautiful Morning! is not a play —although it is playful. It is not a romantic musical — although there is music.It is not a movie — although there is film. It is something completely new, and I was as ‘high as an elephant’s eye’ when it was over” — Jo Ledingham, Theatre Reviews.
