Description

_Carousel _

Music by Richard Rodgers

Book and Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II

Rodgers and Hammerstein’s favorite collaboration, _Carousel _was named the best musical of the 20th Century by Time magazine. Julie and Carrie are mill workers in 1870’s New England who fall in love, one with carousel barker Billy and the other with fisherman Mr. Snow. Their lives become very different with the dark fate of the barker and the success of the fisherman. But when angels give Billy a second chance, love, loyalty, forgiveness and faith are the abiding themes given to his child and to the audience. Come hear the great songs and music, “If I Loved You,” “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” “The Carousel Waltz,” and much more.
