Composed of songs from master of the modern musical Stephen Sondheim's vast catalog, Marry Me a Little is set in the separate apartments of two lonely New Yorkers who fantasize about romance while living only a floor away from each other. Through bittersweet soliloquies and songs from both famous musicals and unproduced shows, the revue tells of the characters' hopes, adventurous longings and fears of commitment. The poignant romantic story includes a slew of songs originally written for such Sondheim gems as Follies, A Little Night Music and Company. Learn More

What a wonderful surprise! Very impressed with the amazing voices of leads, Carmichael Blankenship and Mary Melnick. I must commend FMT for placing a person of color in the lead role! That is so important to me as a person of color and as an active theater subsciber (SJ Rep, SJ Stage and SF's Best of Broadway).
I wish all theaters would take FMT's lead and have casts which reflect our community!
Quotes & Highlights
In 1999, Time magazine voted Carousel the “Best Musical of the Century.”
The multi-award-winning Foothill Music Theatre presents Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical Carousel. Set in a small New England seaside town, the show follows the love story of Billy Bigelow, a smooth-talking carnival barker, and Julie Jordan, the spunky local factory worker he falls for. Forging new territory in musical theatre storytelling, this lush work from the Golden Era of Broadway features a superbly witty script from Hammerstein and boasts some of Rodgers’ most memorable tunes, including “If I Loved You,” “My Boy Bill,” the gorgeous “Carousel Waltz,” and the showstopping “You’ll Never Walk Alone.”
Award-winning director Jay Manley helms this emotionally riveting take on Nicholas Hytner’s 1994 Tony Award-winning revival of the show.
