What's On

74

Rodgers and Hammerstein's popular musical.

Carousel tells the story of carousel barker Billy Bigelow and mill worker Julie Jordan. They meet and fall in love but, unfortunately, things go downhill from there.

Billy's desperation makes him violent against those he loves most and he falls in with con man Jigger Craigin. He ends up getting caught in the midst of an armed robbery and takes his own life.

Fifteen years later, Billy is allowed to return to earth for one day when he encounters Louise, the daughter he never knew. Louise is a lonely teenager - her father's reputation having haunted her throughout her young life.

Is Billy able to instil in both child and her mother a sense of hope?

Music by Richard Rodgers. Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. Based on Fereng Molnar's play Liliom as adapted by Benjamin F Glazer. Original dances by Agnes de Mille. An amateur production by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of R&H Theatricals.
