One of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s most beautiful and enduring musicals, Carousel will both move and delight you. Set in a tight-knit fishing community in New England, the story revolves around the ill-fated love affair between the swaggering, carefree carnival barker Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan, the trusting mill worker whose heart he steals. Filled with recklessness, regret, and redemption, Carousel is ultimately the uplifting story of the power of forgiveness and of belief in the human spirit. The score features timeless classics, including “If I Loved You”, “June Is Bustin’ out All Over”, “What’s the Use of Wondrin’”, “Soliloquy”, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, and some of Richard Rodgers’s most captivating instrumental music. Don’t miss this beautiful and touching love story.
