Parking is not expensive, only $3. But judging from the remote location, this parking should be free instead.

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.
