I think Laurey is the best part. She's pretttier than Annie and her songs are much better. Annie can get a little annoying. I think Laurey's best played as a girly girl like Shirley Jones, but that's just my opinon. I do think that Aunt Eller is very cool too though!

WOW! i definetly think AUNT ELLER above all the rest. If the Aunt Eller can really get into it she can steal the show! I Did! We just finished OKLAHOMA and i was Aunt Eller. She is probably my favorite character. She gets to kinda act drunk and she hits on all the guys. she's kinda a slut i guess. She makes all these random, snoody, ornery ,comments all the time and she really runs the town. She's kinda everyones mom. Things always go her way. I think she's can steal the show if you get the right person!

Post best
Hmm I could be slightly swayed by past involvement in Oklahoma, but I have to say each have their own special characteristic it all depends..
Ado Annie- Is comedic and DITZY (cute songs!)
Aunt Eller- Is the comedic relief in most cases and is "a wise ole womern" (not really a whole lot of dancing and singing, mostly acting)
Laurey- Normal lead romantic female (Rogers and Hammerstien really stick with one common formula and changed it slightly each time she is the oppitomy of lead female).. but GREAT lead part, AMAZING songs, not incredibly comical but very meorable

Depends on your views of what is the best^^^

Post gertie
I agree with crazychica. Gertie would be the most fun. I want to play her. I hanv't in a performance, but it sounds the most fun to be for me.

But, other than that Ado Annie would be the best. But its hard for me to say that, because my friend was Ado Annie, one time. And she was like made for the role. So she would be a better Ado Annie. And I would be a better Gertie.

I played Laurey twice and I love the role. she isnt a flittering girlie girl at all but a vey spunky frontier daughter. I would never ant ot play Annie she isnt given the opportunity for angst and deeper emotions. Laurey is a gem of a role and I amo glad Josephina showed broadway what the role can be if handled properly unlike the film where SHirley Jones coys her way through with little thought.

Laurey is facinated nad sexually attracted to Jud in spite of the danger and her love for Curlkey is greatly tested due to her pig headedness and need to be in control as well.

Annie i suppose can be fun but compared ot Laurey and the emotional rock that Aunt Eller is to the play she pales greatly.

I would have to say Ado-Annie. Not just because I'm playing her, but because she's funny, innocent and lovable. Of course she is a bit ditzy, but that's part of what makes her funny and a great character to play. I do agree wtih Salome about her not being able to show deeper and angstier emotions (that's not really a word, I just made that up). That can problem for people who have do deeper emotions they wish to express, but not for me. But it's also a role in which there is a lot of freedom, rather than having a character like... say Jud for instance, who has be a certain way or else the show doesn't really make sense. Anyway, that's just what I think.
