The team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II totally changed the American Musical both in structure and also how difficult subject matter was to be presented. They were not afraid to deal with subject matter ranging from inter-racial relationships, abusive husbands, racial prejudices, to Nazi takeovers. Throughout their musicals they always taught us that in the darkest times there was always hope. We will examine seven musicals; six written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and one, Showboat written by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II.  

Book: Frederick Nolan, The Sound of their Music: The Story of Rodgers and Hammerstein. From Applause Books 2002. In addition CD and DVD selections will highlight the musicals.
