What do you think?
Ado Annie
Aunt Eller
Laurey

Of course, Laurey has more songs and whatnot......blah. I know the musical, but what do y'all think?

I think Ado Annie is awesome! She is so much fun. She is just a girl who is finally having some fun and enjoying it. She is so innocent in her actions, because she is just having, well, fun. Laurey is so boring. Her songs are obnoxious. Sorry, just my opinion.

Well I've done Oklahoma myself and have seen other performances of it usually Ado Annie knocks Laurey right off. Ado Annie is such a fun character that the audience just loves her and wants to see all the time. yes Laurey is the main lead but for some reason the character doesn't appeal to audiences like Ado Annie does. Same with Curly, Will uses surpasses Curly alot too. The audience loves Will alot. I think the audience gets tired of the Curly Laurey love thing, it gets sickening.

I'd have to say Ado Annie is way better than Laurey, but my personal fav is aunt eller. maybe i'm biased because I've played her before.....but i loved it and i think she is the greatest character. she's definitely the comic relief, and just an all around great character!

i know everyone says ado annie is the best part, and its probably true cause it must be so much fun to play, but i still prefer Laurey, maybe its because i know i could play it better than i could annie ? i dont know, but Laurey - providing shes played as a tomboy and not a boring, wimpy simpering character - is the best part, and aunt eller, well you just got to love her, im too old for youth groups and so will have to wait quite some years before i will get the chance to audition for aunt eller !

Sparkling Diamond, I never thought of Laurey being played by a tomboy. That makes her so much likeable just thinking about it. When I did it Laurey was prim and proper, and "Why wouldn't everybody love me-ish." I thought she was obnoxious, but a tomboy Laurey would really be adorable. Thanks for the insight.

I watched the movie a LONG time ago, so I really don't remember what the character was like. Sorry

Tomboy is how it's played on Broadway, with Josefina in overalls and braids. It's quite adorable...I like her much more there than in the movie when she's all in frills and lace and being pretty and whatnot. I think the farmer girl is much more approachable and charming...Just my $.02!

I played Laurey recently, and although I opted for the tomboy portrayal, I still envied the girl playing Ado Annie. Ado is much more appealing to audiences than Laurey because she's got so much spunk and personality---she's just a fun character to watch. And no matter how you slice it, Laurey's a typical Rogers and Hammerstein ingenue. But then, I'm a sucker for character roles.

I like gertie the best...
Probably because I had so much fun playing her, especially that idiotic laugh...
Well, I also think Aunt Eller is fun.. you get to act pretty much drunk the entire time...
